Students may only forward their mail to an off campus address for the following reasons:
- Leave of Absence
- Summer Break
- Study Abroad
You cannot have your mail forwarded during the school year if you do not fit one of the conditions above. You are required to have an active campus mailbox if you are a full-time, undergraduate student.
If you are studying abroad, regardless of the length of your trip, you must request to have your mail forwarded or it will be returned to its sender while you are abroad.
Mail will be delivered to your campus box during the summer break unless you fill out a forwarding request form.
Mail will not be forwarded during the winter break, it will be delivered to your campus box.
Rules for Forwarding
In order to forward mail you must fill out a LMU Distribution Center Forwarding Request form or submit a formal letter authorizing your mail to be forwarded. Forwarding is not automatic.
Mail arriving through the U.S. Postal Service will be returned to our Post Office the following business day with your forward address. It normally takes the U.S. Postal Service twelve to fourteen days to forward first class mail. However, it may take up to six weeks to deliver forwarded mail.
Submitting a Forward Request
You may drop off a forward request to our mail service counter in University Hall, Suite 1100 during normal business hours. Forwarding Request Forms are available here. If you cannot turn in a forward request during this time you may fax or mail your forwarding request. Forwarding requests must contain a signature or they will not be considered valid.
