In accordance with Columbia Mail policy, students living in Columbia Housing are guaranteed a mailbox continually for the four years they are guaranteed housing, while they remain in the residence halls. Students who move off campus or take a leave of absence other than study abroad will no longer maintain a Columbia-issued student mailbox.
Students will be issued a mailbox key upon check in the first year assigned to Columbia Housing. Residents are expected to return the mailbox key upon check out of the Columbia Housing system. This includes graduation, moving off campus, and a leave of absence other than study abroad. Failure to return the key upon departure will result in a $50 charge to the Student Account.
