There is a central mail facility in the Dining Hall. Each student is assigned a P.O. box and all mail – including campus mail – is delivered here. Students keep the same P.O. box during their enrolment at UCU.
Your P.O. box address will be communicated to you before your arrival, and will look like this:
Maupertuusplein 1 – ***
Registered Packages & Mail
Registered packages & mail (which have to be signed for upon receipt) will not be delivered to your P.O. box but to College Hall. You will receive an email to pick up your delivery within two weeks. After two weeks it will be returned to sender.
Some institutions (like IND, the Utrecht municipality and the Ministry of Justice) do not accept P.O. boxes as contact information. This mail arrives at College Hall. You will receive an email to pick up your delivery within two weeks. After two weeks your delivery will be put in your P.O. box at your own risk.
If your bank does not accept your P.O. box address you can pick up a letter at the reception that you can take to the bank.
Commercial mail not addressed to your P.O. box will be thrown away immediately.
Please be aware that the postal service cannot and will not deliver mail to the residence halls. Do not give out your living address, always use your P.O. box.
