Hinman Box Assignments

Undergraduate Students

Hinman Box (HB) number assignments are mailed with student housing assignments in late July. Combination cards and Hinman Mail Center information are distributed to students when they pick up their Dartmouth ID Card at the Dartmouth Card Office.

 

Hinman Box numbers are retained by students for the duration of continuous enrollment at the College. 

 

Student mail that originates from a Dartmouth department or program should be sent via intra-campus Mail to their Hinman Box number (not to their residence hall address) to avoid U.S. postage.

Please Note: Fraternities, Sororities and Student Organizations are assigned Hinman Boxes in the 5000 series. Mail can be sent to them through intra-campus mail, as well.

 

Professional School Students

Mail is handled within each professional school’s mailroom using the following, generic Hinman Box number for all enrolled students:

Geisel School of Medicine: HB 7000

Thayer School of Engineering: HB 8000

Tuck School of Business: HB 9000
