How to Send Items

How do I mail letters to my daughter?

All residential students are required to have a box on campus. Your daughter will receive her box number after she arrives on campus.

Addressing mail to a box.
Daughter’s Name
Hollins University
Box #
7916 Williamson Road

Do not address U.S. mail with your daughter’s room number because it could be returned to sender.
