Incoming Mail

Wake Forest University Mail Services receives mail from the United States Postal Service (USPS) once a day, Monday through Friday. Mail that is delivered to the University by the USPS arrives on campus at approximately 8:00 AM. Mail Services receives mail that is addressed to all students, faculty and staff that have a 27109 ZIP code. All departmental mail is separated and sorted into the proper boxes for delivery. Except for unusually high volume days, such as Mondays and after a University or USPS holiday, all USPS Mail received by 8:00 AM is delivered the same day.

Note to Students: To make your experience as efficient as possible, please wait for confirmation from WFU Mail Services that indicates that your package has been processed. You will receive an email from Mail Services in addition to a notice placed in your campus box. If the item will fit into your campus box, it will be placed there so that you do not have to wait at the counter.  

Incoming mail addressed to the University must bear the correct name, department (if applicable), box number, street address, city, state, and ZIP code on each piece. The correct address format is as follows:

John Doe
Wake Forest College Dean’s Office
Box 1834
1834 Wake Forest Road
Winston-Salem, NC 27109-1834

NOTE: Your +4 on the end of your ZIP code is determined by the last 4 digits of your PO Box number

USPS mail received by Mail Services with an incorrect name (a name other than a student, faculty or staff member) or a vague or incorrect address (including missing a PO Box number) could result in a delay of your mail or have your mail considered “Undeliverable As Addressed” and returned to the sender for proper addressing. It is very important to notify people who send you mail of your correct address. If you have questions concerning you campus address, contact Mail Services for assistance.
