Hinman Mailbox

There are three different places in which an employee's Hinman Mailbox (HB) number is recorded.

Two employee HB addresses must be updated by the employees themselves, and one employee HB must be updated by the Finance Center.  The HB address most frequently used to generate labels on campus is the address that must be updated by the Finance Center.

The three HB locations and how to update them are noted below. You'll see that #3 is something that is probably best handled by one central person in situations when an entire department changes it's physical location.

Locations and steps to changing your Hinman Mailbox information:

  1. Dartmouth Name Directory (DND) Lookup: This must be updated by the employee. Please log in to and update any personal information, including Hinman Mail Box number.
  2. Employee Self-Service: Log in to Employee Self-Service to update your Personal Information, including your Hinman Box and your Payroll Mailing Address (the mailing address to which you want your paycheck to be sent).
  3. Office Location: If an entire department has moved, the department should gather a full list of employees who have moved, including these details:Employee's full name
    New physical office location (Building Name and Room/Suite Number)
    Hinman Box Number for mail delivery

Send the compiled list to the Finance Center. The finance center will then enter the new HBs and assignment Office Locations in the HR/Payroll System.

Note: this HB address is the one that is typically used when departments request a 'campus mailing list'.
