Post Office

The Post Office is located on the first floor of the University Center, adjacent to the Food Court. All U.S. mail services are provided here, including registered, certified, and insured mail, purchases of stamps and postal money orders, and Express Mail Next Day Service. The Package Center window is open extended hours for your convenience. Students may pick up parcels at this widow.  An interoffice (campus mail) service is available, through which mail may be forwarded to students, faculty and offices on campus free of charge. See restrictions for this service at the Post Office.

All undergraduate students are assigned a campus post office box. This box serves as the official university address for undergraduate students. All mail is sent to this box. Students may find their box numbers and combinations on the Samford Portal under personal information. Graduate and evening degree students are not assigned boxes.

Mail should be addressed in the following format:

Student’s Name
Box 29XXXX
Birmingham, AL 35229

Post Office window hours are 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Monday–Friday. The Package Center window hours during Fall and Spring semesters are 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Students are encouraged to check their boxes daily.

Students who are not enrolled at the university during Jan Term or Summer Terms, or are in London, must leave forwarding addresses in the Post Office prior to departure.
