Mailing Address Formats

All departmental and campus mail is sorted and delivered by LSU department name.  It is essential that a full department name be part of the address.  Improperly addressed envelopes cannot be delivered in a timely manner, require additional handling, and may be returned to the sender.  We discourage the use of acronyms and initials for the department name in the mailing address.
