Delivery Address Updates

Drake Postal Operations Center is here to assist students with their paper and package deliveries. As all students are transitioning in many ways on and off campus, this transition may include a physical address change.

In order to better serve our students – we request that you use the exact physical address where their residence is located for all package and paper mail deliveries – not Drake University’s main street address. Please make sure your student name and hall are listed in the address as well.                                                                                

Campus residence hall addresses are listed below:

  • Carpenter Hall – 2900 Forest Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50311
  • Crawford Hall – 1333 30th Street, Des Moines, IA 50311
  • Herriot Hall – 2842 Forest Ave, Des Moines, IA 50311
  • Stalnaker Hall – 1319 30th Street, Des Moines, IA 50311
  • Jewett Hall – 2700 Forest Ave, Des Moines, IA 50311
  • Morehouse Hall – 2803 University Ave, Des Moines, IA 50311
  • Goodwin Kirk Hall – 1215 30th Street, Des Moines, IA 50311

Also, for future deliveries - please be sure students update their personal information with all commercial mail carriers (USPS, FEDEX, UPS, AMAZON, DHL, etc.) and any local businesses using their independent courier services for deliveries.

These important steps with our combined efforts will effectively help to prevent misguided and misplaced packages and will ensure you get your packages as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Mail Operation Center at: or 515-271-3162.
