Keeping In Touch
E-mail is the easiest way to keep in touch with faculty and staff on campus. Make sure to check your SLU account regularly, as it is used to send you very important University information, including information from instructors, tuition bills, and communication regarding your visa status. Many students choose to link their personal and SLU e-mail accounts.
The Saint Louis University mail center is located on the lower level of the Busch Student Center. When you arrive on campus, you will receive a mail box number and a key for your mailbox. All mail and packages should be sent to:
Busch Student Center
(Your Name as it appears on your SLU account)
MSC (mail box number)
20 N Grand Blvd.
Saint Louis, MO 63103-2005
All mail should be addressed using your name as it appears on your SLU account. Your name should appear in typical American style (given name before family name), and packages should never be sent using a nickname or home name. When you receive a package, the mail center will notify you via e-mail.
The closest United States Post office is located at 4201 Laclede Avenue, about three blocks west of campus. Phone number (314) 533-4697. A one-ounce letter within the U.S. costs $0.44 to mail. Visit the Post Office for package and express rates.
