SLUdent Life

For really knowing what’s going on across the University community, you will need to consult SLUdent Life. It's the place to find out what’s happening in the SLU Community; it's where university offices, campus organizations, associations, and fellow Laurentians find and share information about campus happenings. You’ll want to check in everyday… there's a lot going on here!

Mail Services

The Student Mail Center (SMC) is located on the first floor of the Sullivan Student Center. The SMC dispenses mail and parcels to St. Lawrence students. Students are assigned a combination-operated mailbox that is kept throughout their time at St. Lawrence (visit the Student Mail Center website for more information on how to locate your SMC box number).

The SMC will accept prepaid outbound USPS parcels. Students using UPS and FedEx (Ground and Express) services should use the drop boxes located on the ground floor of Vilas Hall or at the rear entrance of the Sullivan Student Center.  If the UPS or FedEx package(s) is larger than the outgoing drop box, the SMC staff can assist students however, there may be a delay in pick up.  The Brewer Bookstore will also accept pre-paid UPS and FedEx shipments.

Most carrier Web sites provide the capability to print prepaid shipping labels. Here are some options:

To ship belongings to your SMC mailbox at St. Lawrence, address the packages as follows:

Your Name
SMC # (will be sent to you in mid-July)
St. Lawrence University
23 Romoda Drive
Canton, NY 13617

For New Students - We prefer that you ship items after you receive your SMC box number; however, if you must ship package(s) sooner, clearly mark your parcel with the words “NEW Incoming Student.” More information is available on the SMC website

Postage (dated USPS postage) can be purchased using a Community Wide Account (CWA) at the Student Mail Center during regular business hours.  Stamps may be purchased on campus at the Brewer Bookstore.

It is imperative that we have an accurate home mailing address on file for all students. Please contact the Student Life office at 315-229-5311, to notify us of any change of address for you or your parent/guardian.

Mobile Phone Service

Verizon and AT&T provide the best local service. Other carriers such as Sprint will work in the Canton area; however, coverage is inconsistent. Please consult with your carrier for regional coverage information.
