CNU's mail department picks up and delivers mail twice daily to all departments, at all locations. We are equipped to handle most types of mail (i.e. registered mail, certified mail, return receipt and delivery confirmation) with the exception of UPS and FedEx. However, we can expedite USPS overnight mail.

We also can assist you with your bulk mailing (mail that consists of at least 200 pieces). For bulk mailing, we ask that you arrange the mailing in zip code order, from lowest to highest, prior to submission to our mail carrier. We also have the capability of weighing most packages to pre-determine the cost of mailing. If you have questions, please contact us at (757) 594-7935.

Our CNU mail room does not stock stamps, envelopes, money orders or postcards. The DSU sells letter stamps. Any additional items should be purchased from the United States Post Office.

A white U.S.Mail box is located on the front lawn of 72 Shoe Lane.

Student Mail

Each on-campus student is provided their own individual mailbox. All student mail and packages are delivered to Ms. Shauron Russell in the student mail room located in the David Student Union, 272A.  Mail is distributed to student mailboxes while packages remain in the safekeeping of the mail room until students pick them up. 

Mail forwarding is offered during the summer and for study abroad students. Packages sent via USPS Express, FedEx, and UPS can  be forwarded from the student mail room with a prepaid shipping label.

The student mailroom is open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday -  Friday.  For questions or for more information please contact Ms. Shauron Russell via email at or by phone at (757) 594-7853.

Hours: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
