Campus Post Office

Menlo College has a campus post office to manage distribution of letters and packages to students, faculty and staff. Mail boxes are available so students can have afterhours access and all students, both resident and non-resident, are required to have one. Campus postal staff members pick up the mail from the US Postal Service Mondays through Fridays (except holidays) for sorting and distribution on campus. FedEx, UPS and various independent delivery companies also deliver packages to the campus post office for distribution to students and staff. Deliveries are not accepted after 4 p.m. or on weekends or holidays. Faculty and staff mail is delivered to campus buildings while student mail must be picked up at the campus post office. Mailbox numbers shown on all incoming mail are verified before the mail is distributed to box holders.

Service Hours

Monday through Friday 12:30 pm to 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm.

Mailboxes are assigned by Menlo College Post Office staff during the Orientation and the Registration Check-in processes. Mailboxes are accessed either by a combination or a key. If a mailbox key is not returned, there is a replacement charge of $40. Mail should be addressed as follows:

Recipient’s Name
Menlo College
1000 El Camino Real
Box #
Atherton, CA 94027-4301

The campus post office will also deliver outgoing mail to the U.S. Postal Service at 4:00 p.m. weekdays. Postage stamps are available at the Campus Bookstore. Packages weighing up to 13 ounces may be mailed through the campus post office.

Students receiving prescription medications through the mail may do so through their campus mailbox but should also make Student Affairs aware of their needs.

Upon graduation or transfer from Menlo College, students may have their first class mail forwarded for 3 months after finals by giving their new address to the campus post office. (The US Postal Service will not process a change of address from a student because the college address is not changing.) Students should notify each of their correspondents of their new address. All mail not forwarded will be returned to the US Post Office for return to the sender.
