How to Address Student Mail

It’s extremely important BU students use correct and complete address when receiving mail at their university address. It’s necessary to include mailbox number and name of residence hall to be considered a complete address. An incomplete address (without a mailbox or residence hall destination) will result in delays or complete delivery failure.
