AT THE START OF THE FALL TERM
For Incoming Freshman:
The RISD Mailroom will send you specific shipping instructions in early July along with shipping labels, your RISD box number, and mailbox combination. You may begin shipping items to the UPS Store after the first week of August.
For the fall move-in, the RISD Mailroom works with a local UPS shipper located at:
11 South Angell St.
Providence RI 02906
The UPS Store will receive, store and deliver items to RISD just prior to the opening of school. Your items may be received in the First Year Quad at check-in. You may contact UPS directly at 401 751-6245 should you have any questions.
For Incoming International Freshman:
Packages coming from over-seas addresses should be mailed directly to your RISD box number as directed in the instructions that you will receive in July. You may begin mailing packages during the first week of August.
Shipped items for International Students should be addressed to:
RISD Box #_____
2 College St.

Please ship your items directly to your RISD box after the first week of August.
*The only exception to this policy is for residents of Charles Landing Apartments who have a mailbox for each apartment on site. Residents may arrange for packages to be received there by contacting the Leasing Office at 401 272-5580.
DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR
All local shipping vendors know to deliver all “RISD” packages to the RISD Mailroom. When parcels are received, students receive a notice in their mailbox that they have a package waiting for them.
*You cannot ship anything directly to a studio or residence hall.
AT THE END OF THE SPRING TERM:
UPS staff will be on campus in the First Year Quad for several days prior to the close of the Residence Halls to assist students with shipping items back home.
