Mailing Information

College students love getting mail! It helps them feel connected to home and supported by the people who love them most.

Here’s some info to make it easy.

Mailing Your Student

Every North Central student is assigned a box number. This number, along with the student’s first and last name, needs to be on all mail and packages so we can get things to the right person.

Here’s the address format:

Student Name
NCU ####
910 Elliot Ave
Minneapolis, MN 55404-1391


Student Name
910 Elliot Ave NCU ####
Minneapolis, MN 55404-1391

Here’s an example:

Johnny Smith
NCU 1234
910 Elliot Ave
Minneapolis, MN 55404-1391

Things to Know

We’ll forward a freshman’s mail to their box for 60 days after the start of a semester so you have some time to get used to the address format.

After 60 days—November 1st for Fall Semester or March 1st for Spring Semester—any mail that doesn’t contain the student’s mailbox number will be returned.

Students retain the same mailbox for the duration of their time at North Central. If a student decides to leave North Central, their box will be held for them for 1 year. If they return after 1 year, they’ll be assigned a new mail box number unless prior arrangements have been made.

If anything is sent to a student that requires a signature, we’ll sign for it. Here’s how our package system works:

  1. Mail and packages are delivered to North Central throughout the day (USPS, FedEx, UPS, other couriers).
  2. After a package is received, we’ll enter it into the school’s package system.
  3. Once it’s entered, an email will be sent to the student’s North Central email address notifying them of their package.
  4. The student can come to the Copying & Mailing Services office to pick up their package. They’ll need their ID card and the Package ID number from the email. They’ll sign for the package in the school’s system.
