If you receive a package email from us, please send an email to postandprint@bates.edu with your package handling preferences.

 

If someone is sending you packages or mail, be sure to inform them of the proper format for sending mail to you. The proper format is as follows.

Student Name
[Box Number] Bates College
Lewiston, Maine 04240

In the event that someone requires a street address to mail a package or overnight letter to you, (Federal Express and UPS usually require a street address) the mailing address is:

Student Name
[Box Number] Bates College
65 Campus Avenue
Lewiston, Maine 04240

When the package reaches Bates and is processed, you will receive a Bates College email (emails from carriers like UPS and FEDEx are not an indication your package is ready for pick up).

You must have your Bates ID to pick up items at Post & Print.

Your box number can be found in “Mailboxes” under Student Life on Garnet Gateway.
