Mailing Address Instructions

A correct example of how a BSU mailing address should read is below. Note that the word “box” is not used for our campus mailbox, but rather the # symbol is used. This is the correct format for proper delivery to the university:

How to Format Your Return Address

Mr. John Smith
Communications Office
Bemidji State University # 2
1500 Birchmont Drive NE
Bemidji, MN 56601-2699

Please try to send your mail out early in the week if possible and avoid waiting until Friday. A large volume of outgoing mail on Friday may result in some mail not going out until the following Monday. Also, Bulk Mail arriving at the Bemidji Post Office after 3 p.m. Friday will not go out until the next business day, which would be Monday. See out going mail schedule.

Any questions or comments please contact mailing services by email: or call Troy at (218) 755-3922.
