The mailing address is used by the Post Office and Mail Services to deliver mail to the intended recipient. Since all Calvin College mail comes through Mail Services, it can all be addressed to the "official" Calvin College mailing address.
Although there are several acceptable mailing address formats for Calvin College recipients, this is the one we prefer:
Department name (or Dorm/Apt. name & room#)
3201 Burton St. SE
Grand Rapids MI 49546
The physical address, which is the building number and street address, is used by 911 emergency responders and GPS navigators to actually drive up to a specific building.
Each Calvin College building does have a physical address.
1855 Knollcrest Circle SE
Grand Rapids MI 49546-4402
