Receiving Mail


Where should my mail/packages be sent?

Any mail or packages should be sent to the BU Madrid office:

Boston University in Madrid
Instituto Internacional en España
Miguel Ángel, 8
28010 Madrid – España


Please be aware that customs will not allow certain things to be sent

  • Do not have your parents or friends send you any electronics, medicine, cosmetics, lotions, milk products, etc., as these are likely to be stopped at customs and sent back to the U.S. at the expense of the sender.
  • If they do send you something (i.e. clothes, books, etc.) make sure that they write “USED” and/or “For Personal Use ONLY”.
