Incoming mail (from USPS)

YOUR OFFICIAL MAILING ADDRESS: USPS has ever-increasing mail sorting automation which relies on accurate addressing. To maximize timely USPS delivery, ALL incoming USPS mail, including any regular subscriptions or mailing lists you are on, must be addressed as follows:

MAIN CAMPUS: regardless of the street address of the DMC building in which you are located, your official USPS mailing address is:

(Required) Your Full Name, Your Title if desired.
Your Department, if desired. Your MailStop Code (MSC)
  SUNY Downstate Medical Center (University Hospital of Brooklyn, or your DMC-affiliated company name )
(Required) 450 Clarkson Ave (For UH departments, 445 Lenox Rd is also acceptable)
(Required 9 digit zip) Brooklyn, NY 11203-2098

BAY RIDGE:

(Required) Your Full Name, Your Title, if desired.
Your Department, Floor & Rm#
SUNY Downstate Medical Center at Bay Ridge
(Required) 9036 7th Ave
(Required 9 digit zip) Brooklyn, NY 11228-3625

Your Department
Long Island College Hospital or your DMC- affiliated company name), if desired.
(Required) 339 Hicks St

  • Failure to have this information in this format on the address label will result in either USPS or DMC Mail Services delivery delays, or opened by DMC Mail Services for destination determination.

Main Campus Incoming Mail:

  • Main campus mail is sorted by DMC MailStop# (formerly called Box#) for internal delivery; The recipient name is NOT screened.
  • Mail that has a DMC MailStop# will be sorted and delivered faster that those needing to be looked up in directory listings.
  • All Incoming mail that is properly addressed is sorted to its campus MailStop number on the day it arrives in Mail Services.
  • If you are receiving unwanted mailings, subscriptions addressed incorrectly, or mail addressed to persons no longer present, you need to contact the sender. Otherwise it will continually recur. Cancelled or subscription address changes submitted often take 1-2 months to take effect. If you mark a mailpiece "Return to Sender", then Mail Services will process it back through the USPS.
  • Your USPS Mailing Address is DIFFERENT from your "Ship To" address. See DMC Incoming Package Delivery Requirements. Parcels are received/ processed through DMC Central Receiving.
