    Sorry for the Oxford forum invasion! I want to send my friend a care package for when she starts her exams, but not sure how best to address it.

    If I address it to her college (St. Catz) with her name, will it get to her pigeonhole? (That's how it's done in my Durham college, but don't want to assume wrongly and end up with a lost parcel!)

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. asking on here, as it's supposed to be a surprise...

    Yes, name and college address will get it there.

    Funnily enough, we had a letter arrive at the start of the week from the USA that was just addressed to 'Jane and Peter' @ Brasenose (names changed to protect privacy!).

    The porters scratched their heads (the porters' lodge is the post room) trying to work out who these guys were ... but they figured it out in the end! Its a bit easier with 570 students (under grads & post grads) than, say, 30,000 students but we were still impressed!

    So yes, you can send colleges snail mail!
