Faculty and Staff Information

Correct Address Format for Incoming Mail or Packages

The following address format should be used for incoming mail or packages for faculty and staff:

Your Name, Department
Colorado College
14 E. Cache La Poudre Street
Colorado Spring CO  80903-3294

Please do not use the physical address of your building as this will slow the processing and delivery of mail and packages by the Post office and any other carriers. USPS, FedEx and UPS couriers are not allowed inside of the campus buildings with only prearranged exceptions. 

Incoming USPS mail is picked up and sorted at Central Services generally by 9:45 am. The mail is then delivered around campus according to daily scheduled rounds.

Delivery and Pickup

Mail Services has approximate scheduled runs for pickup and delivery of mail for most departments on campus. If your out-going mail is not ready by the normal pickup time for your department please present it to Worner Mailroom by 1:30 pm for same-day processing. Mail received after 2:00pm will be mailed out the following working day. Outgoing mail is picked up by the U.S. Postal Service between 2:00 and 2:30 pm every working day (except for holidays).

Non-employee relatives are NOT permitted to use the Colorado College business address for the purpose of establishing a permanent home address or the operation of a personal business. Mail Services will provide a street address to non-employee relatives for the use of a permanent home address at the time that they register with Colorado College Mail Services. Non-employee relatives are not eligible for student mail boxes.
