Tip: Sort junk mail

To cut down on junk mail, register with the Mailing Preference Service.

It's a simple, two-minute process which will cut down the amount of junk mail you receive, and the amount of time we spend sorting it.



Mail is delivered Monday to Friday, and is left in the kitchen of each residence, with the kitchen door locked where possible.

Use your full postal address, the best format to use is:

Residence name
Block or level
Room number
University of Bath

Collecting mail

Items that require a signature such as parcels/packages, chequebooks or registered/recorded mail will be held at the relevant mail room.

We will email you to let you know your item has arrived, and you can collect it between 11:00 - 17.50 (Monday to Friday), and also 19:00-20:00 during term-time only.

You'll need to bring the reference number stated on your email notification, along with some formal identification such as your library card or passport.
