    Hello guys,

    I know this type of question has been answered again, but I had some trouble confirming the address of Greetham Street Halls in several websites' databases (i.e. my Bank / Amazon / forwarding mail accounting details).

    So, these databases often use Royal Mail's postcode finder system, in order to correctly classify a customer/individual into their system (of course sometimes there is an option for manually entering your address), however since it is this time of the year where we declare our address on pretty much everywhere we set an account for, I would like to know which is our term address.

    According to Unite-Students' website (link: http://www.unite-students.com/portsm...reetham-street ), the postcode is PO1 2BB (see picture)

    However, according to Royal Mail's search (link: http://www.royalmail.com/find-a-postcode ), the postcode is PO5 4FB (see picture)

    Attachment 580746580748

    So, at the end of the day, which is our actual postcode, in order to declare our address somewhere?

    i.e.

    Room X, Flat XXXX
    Unite Students,
    Greetham Street, Southsea
    Portsmouth
    PO1 2BB / PO5 4FB


    Thanks in advance for your interest,

    Hi update from Greatham Street...odd as it sounds there are two postcodes that work in this building,..it seems that the location straddles two postcode areas

    You can use either
    PO1 2BB
    PO5 4LJ
    Mail for either of these postcodes is arriving safely we have been
    advised.
