The GSAS Mail Center, located in the basement of Perkins Hall, serves the following dormitories of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences –

  • Child Hall - 26 Everett St.
  • Conant Hall - 36 Oxford St.
  • Perkins Hall - 35 Oxford St.
  • Richards Hall - 24 Everett St.

The address of residents receiving mail at the GSAS Mail Center should be formatted as follows:

<Full Name>
<Mailbox Number><Hall>
GSAS Mail Center
Cambridge, MA 02138

So, for example,

John Harvard
123 Child Hall
GSAS Mail Center
Cambridge, MA 02138

This is the best way to address your mail.  However, some carriers will require a street address, which are listed above.

The GSAS Mail Center is open Monday-Friday, 8AM-12PM and 1PM-5PM abd Saturday 10AM-2PM.

All mail is sorted into mailboxes, and residents are notified via email when a parcel is received for them.  Residents may drop off mail or parcels they wish to send out via USPS, UPS, or FedEx – provided postage or prepaid labels are already attached.  Due to the high turnover rate at these dormitories, the GSAS Mail Center works closely with the Harvard Student Mail Forwarding Center to help ensure that any mail for former residents is forwarded to them.
