Mail service

All mail is received at the Front Desk in West Residence Building B and distributed to student mailboxes located in both East and West Residences. The mailboxes in West Residence are in Building B. The mailboxes in East Residence are in the Community Centre.

Each resident is assigned a mailbox - the box number can be found on the key envelope issued at move-in. It is not the number engraved on the key. Items that will not fit in these boxes are held at the office in West Residence for pick-up. Students will be notified via email for a pick-up.

Residence Services will distribute some information throughout the semester through student mailboxes. Often this is important information and notices for specific residents that the Front Desk feels is necessary to provide in writing. Students should check this mail box regularly.

Mailing address

Your mailing address is:

Your Name
200 Mount Royal Circle SW
Calgary, AB T3E 7P7

There is no need to add your unit/room number to the mailing address. All mail received is sorted by Residence staff and placed in your mailbox.

Important: Residence Services is closed during the Winter Holiday break. There is no mail service during this period.

Mail addressed to students not currently living in Residence is returned to the sender.


Resident Advisors (RAs) are on-call every night after the Front Desk closes to deal with lock-outs and any other issues that may arise. They also perform rounds of the residence complexes several times a night.

Emergency text messaging service

In order to keep our residents safe and secure, Residence Services utilizes an emergency text messaging service system to notify residents of emergency and critical situations, such as extreme weather, incidents on campus that require staying in place, or significant utility issues. This system will only be used by Residence Services and Security Services to notify residents of emergency situations. Please ensure the mobile phone number you provided through the Residence Portal is your current mobile phone number. For more information, see housing policies.
