Student Information

Student Address Format

First & Last Name (no nicknames)
Loyola Marymount University 
1 LMU Drive, MS B-XXXX
Los Angeles, CA 90045

Mail and packages may be delayed or returned if not properly addressed. Student mailbox numbers are emailed to first-year students and new transfer students during the first two weeks of August. Students may also look up their mail box numbers in PROWL.

Perishable Items

Grocery delivery services, like Amazon Fresh or Instacart, are not approved LMU shippers due to health and safety reasons as well as a lack of facilities to properly accommodate such goods. Any shipments from them will be rejected or returned. Flowers will be held for 2 days before being discarded. 

Mail Forwarding

Students may forward their mail to an off-campus address for the following reasons:

  1. Leave of Absence
  2. Graduation
  3. Summer Break
  4. Study Abroad

To request mail forwarding services, please contact the Distribution Center HelpDesk at DCHD@lmu.edu using your lion email address. 

*Please note that it normally takes the US Postal Service twelve to fourteen days to forward first-class mail. However, it may take up to six weeks to deliver forwarded mail. Items received from couriers other than the US Postal Service are not eligible for forwarding.

Alternative Package Pick-up

If you cannot pick up a package due to an emergency and would like another person to pick it up, please send the request to DCHD@lmu.edu using your lion email address. The individual picking up the package must bring photo identification in order to claim the package.

The Distribution Center also has the ability to ship packages to alternative addresses at cost. 

Outgoing Mail and Packages

The Campus Business Center offers limited USPS, FedEx, and UPS services. Flexi dollars and credit cards are accepted for all transactions. 

Notes and Restrictions: 

  • We cannot ship any international non-documents.  If you are trying to ship a package or commodity overseas you will have to post it through an official courier outlet.
  • We cannot ship any packages weighing over 16oz to a military address (APO/FPO).
  • All outgoing mail weighing over 16oz must bear a return address.
  • We do not accept pre-paid UPS shipments. Any such shipments can be dropped off at one of the UPS dropboxes on campus, or at a UPS store. 

Overnight Shipments

You must e-mail the Distribution Center HelpDesk (DCHD@lmu.edu) at least 24 hours in advance if you need to pick up an overnight package before 3:00 p.m. on the day it arrives. The e-mail must indicate the expected arrival date, the carrier, and the tracking number.
