Street Numbers

Street numbers are NOT to be used for U.S. mail purposes with VUMC addresses serviced under zip code 37232. (To see which buildings fall under 37232, click here.) 

VUMC's addressing format is older than the USPS' current computerized address management system and we have discovered that the two cannot be made fully compatible.  By arrangement with the USPS, if no street address is present, the USPS system will scan only the 37232 zip and route the item to us.  However, if a street address is present, the system may try to match the address to another zip and it may be misrouted. 

However, the street number is appropriate for use in those buildings which receive service directly from the U.S. Postal Service.  In such cases, proper address formatting is to place the street address line DIRECTLY ABOVE the city/state/zip line.  Any other address information should appear above the street address line.

FOR NON-POSTAL PURPOSES - the street address may be needed in any building for use in directing deliveries by other carriers such as UPS or Federal Express.

For reference, the complete list of street addresses where Medical operations exist in the central campus area appears below.  NOTE:  subsequent to the campus separation of early 2016, not all of these areas are actually served by the Medical Center Post Office (Station 17).  The SECOND list below shows buildings served by Station 17 for campus and/or US Mail.

Building Street Zip Codes

Most U.S. Mail for VUMC moves through Station 17, the Medical Center Post Office. The Station 17 assigned zip code is 37232, and campus zip codes are added to the end of this to form the complete 9-digit U.S. mail zip. The Post Office's campus zip is (2635), for instance, so our complete U.S. zip is 37232-2635.

However, this is not true for buildings which are separate from the main complex. Departments in these buildings receive their U.S. mail directly from one of the U.S. Post Office stations in Vanderbilt area. Such areas fall under the U.S. zip code assigned to the street address where they are located. (To see the list of street addresses, click here.)

Departments in these facilities use their campus zip codes ONLY for campus mail. They must use the street zip code for U.S. mail and cannot use the campus zip along with it.

(Note that this group includes installations outside the campus area such as Franklin and Brentwood.)

NOTE: The chart below became more complicated after the campus split in early 2016.  Campus mail service in some cases transferred between Station 17 (Medical) and Station B (University).  The list is arranged at top by USPS zip code, and below that each area is marked with [17] or [B] according to where its campus mail comes from.
