The Citadel

The Military College of South Carolina


Post Office

The Citadel Post Office is a full service contract postal unit sanctioned by the United States Postal Service. We provide a wide range of postal services for The Citadel campus and surrounding community. Mail service is an important part of our college, as a business and as a lifeline to the world outside the campus. Our staff of five full-time employees process over 2,000,000 pieces of mail each year. The main responsibilities in the operation of The Citadel Post Office are to the United States Postal Service, The Citadel and to our customers. We realize that good, quality service and good public relations are two very important aspects of these responsibilities.

All cadets and campus residents are eligible to obtain a MSC box for their mail. MSC (Mail Stop Code) is a postal code used to differentiate our box numbers from those of downtown Charleston. The Citadel is considered a small town by Postal standards. Therefore, we have our own unique zip code - 29409.

We are located on the first floor of Mark Clark Hall, next door to the Gift Shop & Barber Shop. Hours of operation are: Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Our window is also open on Saturday mornings from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. for parcel pick-up only.

We encourage you to browse our website for official mailing guidelines and also to give you a better understanding of various Postal Services available to you here at The Citadel. Please feel free to contact a member of The Citadel Post Office staff if you need assistance with your mailing needs. Our phone number is: 843/953-7690.
