Student Post Office (SPO)

Information Students Need to Know as School Begins

Mailing Services provides SPO boxes to all students to receive mail and packages. SPO box numbers are assigned at the start of the fall semester. Students may ship their items to Macalester, even if they do not know their SPO box number. Once on campus, students will need a slip from your SPO to claim packages. For SPO information, go to 1600grand.

Mailing Services and SPO boxes are located in the Campus Center, Lower Level.  We offer most services available at a conventional Post Office, including selling stamps, sending mail, shipping packages, both domestic and international.
