Stay in Touch


For really knowing what’s going on across the University community, you will need to consult SLUWire. 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 UPS, FedEx and USPS parcels. You can find UPS and FedEx drop boxes on the ground floor of Vilas Hall and a UPS drop box at the rear entrance to the Sullivan Student Center. 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

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 “Incoming New Student.” More information is available on the SMC website

Stamps can be purchased from the following locations within the Sullivan Student Center: the Student Mail Center (with your Community Wide Account (CWA) only), North Country Savings Bank branch office, or the ATM machines located on the first floor of the Sullivan Student Center and in the entrance of 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.

Fax Service

Students may receive free in-bound faxes at the Student Mail Center (SMC) (315-229-5515). The cover page must include the student’s name and SMC number to ensure delivery. Students can send faxes from the Brewer Bookstore for a fee.

In-room Telephone Service

Each residence hall room is equipped with local telephone service requiring a basic corded telephone. Long-distance calls require a calling card. Calling cards may be purchased at the Brewer Bookstore.

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.
