Mail Services

The VMI Mail Room has two missions. First, it serves as the equivalent of a U. S. Post Office for cadets as it receives and distributes their personal mail and packages as well as collecting and processing their outgoing mail. The second mission is to receive/distribute and collect/process the official mail of the Institute.

The mail room has a customer service window for cadet customers; the service window is open Monday through Friday 1000-1415 hours and 1500-1600 hours. Please do not use P.O. Box in the address this may delay delivery and cause the letter/package to go into the Lexington City mail distribution.
