Mail & Copy Services

Mail Center

The SSU Mail Center (Phone number - 912-358-3126) is located on the first floor of King-Frazier Complex, across from the University Bookstore. Stamps can be purchased there, and letters or packages can be mailed. Resident students are each charged a nominal fee for a mail box. The service window is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for University holidays.  The mail center accepts cash, credit/debit cards, and the SSU ID card flex funds.

Policies and Procedures

All resident students will be assigned a mailbox. Please present your Student ID card to the Mail Center for your mailbox assignment. The first two weeks of the semester, mailbox assignments will be made during normal window hours (8:30 a.m. 4:30 p.m.); after the first two weeks, assignments may be made at limited times that will be posted at the Mail Center.

You will be given your mailbox combination at the time you receive your mailbox assignment. Please make sure that you memorize, or write down this number. Duplicate mailbox combination requests may only be given out at limited times that will be posted at the Mail Center. Please note that Mail Center employees are not allowed to retrieve mail out of a mailbox.

     Mail should be addressed in this form:

     JOHN/JANE DOE
     BOX 00000 (not room number)
     Savannah State University
     3219 College Street
     Savannah, Georgia 31404

If you are returning the subsequent semester and living in a residence hall, you will not be required to clear your box with the SSU Mail Center staff. You will keep the same mailbox, as long as you have applied for housing by July 1. Otherwise, your mailbox may be reassigned to an incoming student.

If you plan to take a break during a semester or withdraw, be sure to provide the United States Postal Service (USPS) with your completed Change of Address form (3575) which is available at the SSU Mail Center or can be downloaded from www.usps.gov. Be sure to include the street address of the University (3219 College Street, Savannah, GA 31404). First Class Mail (only) will be returned to the sender if it remains dormant in the mailbox for thirty days. Packages will be returned to sender at the end of each semester or held for 30 days, whichever is greater.

In the summer, you may request a temporary change of address from the USPS.

Due to the shortage of mailboxes, the University is unable at this point to provide students who reside off campus with a mailbox or with package acceptance service.
