Follow these instructions so that the items you ship here will be available when you arrive on campus. Please take precautions to properly protect and secure the items in your boxes, so that they will not arrive here broken or damaged. All shipments must be prepaid. Sorry, but we cannot accept COD shipments.

Ship via UPS or the US Postal Service on or after August 16th. Plan to have your belongings arrive in Portland by August 24th. **Please only send your essential items and limit your boxes to 3. Be sure to keep individual package weight under 50lbs and in boxes that are a manageable size. Once school starts, you can order any other items you may need!

If you are a student athlete and are required by your coach to arrive earlier than August 20th, bring all the items you will need for pre-season practice with you, including towels and bedding.

1st Choice Shipping Method: Ship via UPS. If you send 3 boxes, mark each box “1 of 3,” “2 of 3,” “3 of 3”. Please write the name of your residence hall and “NSO” on every box you ship. Bring the receipt (or a copy of it) for your shipment with you to campus. Address your boxes as follows:

 

Your Name - MSC XXX

615 S Palatine Hill Road Portland OR 97219-7899

Destination verification: 503-768-7867 or email mailsrv@lclark.edu

 

Also, remember that you are always able to purchase items here. Oregon has no sales tax so you might save yourself a decent chunk of change. We will have our free Pio shuttle that runs to the local Fred Meyer where you can pick up a lot of the essentials.

If you are worried about shopping while you get here, you can look into pre-purchase options. Places such as Bed, Bath & Beyond allow you to use their scanners to decide what you want in a store near your home and they will have boxes ready to go with what you ordered at home in a store near here.

The long distance move can be done, but you should start thinking about your needs sooner rather than later. As always, call or e-mail 503-768-7183 or nso@lclark.edu with any questions.
