Drake University Building Addresses

Drake University has a Postal Operations office for sorting and delivering the majority of faculty and staff mail.  All student mail is delivered their individual Residence Hall.   It is helpful if mail to either group is addressed to the specific person, and to specify the building and/or department where the mail should be delivered. The department and office addresses for most buildings are listed below.

Packages from UPS or FedEx should be sent using the actual building address so drivers know where on campus the recipient is located – Drake Postal Operations does not need to handle UPS/FedEx packages, and they are delivered faster if addressed correctly.

If you have any questions on how to address your package, please feel free to contact
