A departmental name and mail stop numbering system is used to rapidly identify and sort incoming mail. It is important that all faculty and staff provide their assigned department and mail stop information when giving their mailing address to anyone. A current listing of departmental names and mail stop numbers is provided on the Rice website. It may be accessed by clicking on the connection below.
Mail will be received in an expedited manner when addressed to the P O Box address shown below. It is important to always provide the Zip + 4 code for your mailing address. Mail sent to 6100 Main Street will be delayed by one-three days in reaching its designated department. Mail received without the appropriate department and mail stop number will be delayed in distribution while research is performed to locate the addressee. Some mail may be returned to sender if the recipient cannot be accurately identified.
