Students love when packages from home arrive. Wondering how to send a package to your student? We are sharing our tips below. 

What is a care package? 

A care package is fun mail for students to let them know that you are thinking about them. It can be a great way to reach out to a student if they are having a stressful week or missing home. It's also a great way to let your student know you are thinking about them. 

What should I put in a care package? 

The possibilities are endless, but I recommend: 

  • your student's favorite non-perishable snacks.
  • a note or card letting your student know you are thinking of them.
  • de-stressors are fun—Play-Doh, bubbles, and stickers are fun for college students.
  • essentials your student may need, such as toiletries or laundry detergent.

Where do I send the care package? 

All packages or mail for students should be addressed as such: 

“Student Name” 
3200 Cold Spring Rd 
“Dorm Name and Number” (example: Doyle Hall 100) 
Indianapolis, IN 46222 

How will my student receive their care package?

When students have a package, they will receive an email either from the Mailroom or Pack City. If they receive an email from the Mailroom, students will receive instructions on setting up a time to pick up their package. If they receive an email from Pack City, students will receive a barcode to scan at the mail lockers and can pick up their package any time.
