Extract from Dal News

According to an article in Dal News postal addresses at Dalhousie are changing for the second time in a year.

The new address format will be as follows:

Your department or unit Dalhousie University
Civic or street address
PO BOX 15000
Halifax, NS B3H 4R2

The article was credited to Ryann McNutt, and was dated .  It follows-up a notice in Dalhousie University's Notice Digest #55 for which gave some background for the initial change of address:

From: Facilities Management
Subject: Dal's new postal code

Take note of Dal's new postal code

Get ready to commit some new digits to memory, since Canada Post has assigned Dalhousie University a new postal code.

From now on B3H 4R2 is the correct postal code for all university correspondence.

According to Canada Post regulations, any institution can only have one postal code. Canada Post will only deliver to one central location — in our case, that's 1459 Oxford Street, Halifax. This change applies to all existing properties and to new buildings opening on campus.

We're aware of the need to update addresses and can assist with production of letterhead and business cards, says Fran Ornstein, Director of Creative Services. Just give us a call at 494-3636 and we'll help you to transition your stationery materials.

It is equally important to remember to change addresses on university web sites and on email [sic] signature lines to reflect the new code.

Mail that is being sent to Dalhousie that does not use the new B3H 4R2 code will still be delivered but may experience delays.

At present, we are aware of many known Dalhousie addresses currently in use. This mail is being redirected to the Oxford Street location, but a delay in delivery is common, says Stephanie Skrobot, of Canada Post.

Every building and department on campus should adapt the following pattern:

Your Department
1459 Oxford Street
Dalhousie University
Halifax, N.S. B3H 4R2

The mail room will not be accepting courier packages. In the case of a department ordering courier delivery, please include the building's civic address and name.

Dalhousie received about 1.2 million pieces of incoming mail from Canada Post in 2010. On behalf of the university 750,000 stamped pieces of mail were sent out. The mailroom also handled about 600,000 pieces of internal mail, using inter-departmental mail envelopes.

If there are any questions about the new postal code, please contact the mailroom at 494-3476.
