All students, residents and commuters, are assigned a mailbox when they matriculate. New on-campus students will receive their mailbox key when they arrive on move-in day. Commuting students will be notified when their key is ready for pickup at the Student Resource Center.
There is no mailbox cost unless the key needs to be replaced. The assigned mailbox will remain the same for each consecutive semester the student is enrolled. An address change form must be completed by every student at the end of each school year and at the time of graduation or withdrawal from the college to allow for forwarding of mail.
Packages and mail are received from all carriers and distributed Monday through Friday. There is no delivery on Saturday or Sunday.
A letter drop-off box is located near the rear entrance of the Administration Building. Outgoing packages can be processed at the Administration Building.
Campus mail from PBC and CBC offices, faculty, or students is delivered daily. Campus mail requires no postage, but does require sender’s name and recipient’s name and mailbox number. Campus mail can be dropped off in the drop slot available next to the student mailboxes. For security reasons do not drop mail containing cash or items of value in campus slot.
WARNING: Failure to include your mailbox number in all incoming mail or internal mail (such as assignments), may result in severe delays or returning of your mail.
On-campus students utilizing their mailboxes as their primary mailing address (temporary or permanent), must file a change of address form with the United States Postal Service. This can be done online through the USPS portal: https://moversguide.usps.com and it only costs $1.00 (payable directly to the USPS through their website). Failure to complete the form will result in mail being returned to sender
On campus student addresses should appear as follows:
Name of Student
Portland Bible College
9150 NE Fremont Street
Portland, OR 97220

Keys may be returned upon checking out of your dorm directly to your dorm leader or to the Student Campus Pastor’s office. Failure to return the mailbox key will result in forfeiture of your room/key deposit of $100.00 for on-campus students, or an addition of a fee for off-campus students.
All students are required to renew their key “check-out” the week before the end of each semester or upon student withdrawal. This helps us track if keys need to be replaced. Failure to renew your key loan may result in the loss of your key deposit along with additional replacement fees. Key renewals can be done in the Student Resource Center or through the Library Online Portal. Click here to learn how to renew your key in the Online Library Portal.
Mail will be held through all breaks including the summer break unless a forwarding address is left with the office.
Mail will be forwarded for 30 days if a forwarding address card is left with the office. After 30 days all mail will be returned to the sender.
