Addressing Faculty Mail & Packages

To have the mail delivered to HSE the sender should follow the format described below. Not following the proper mail addressing procedures may result in service delays or failures. 

The Russian post delivers mails and packages to the HSE Administrative Office every day.  Mail is then sorted and placed in departments’ mail folders at Room 441 (20 Myasnitskaya str.) or at Room M118 (11 Pokrovsky blvd). Delivery is available at other HSE buildings (depending on the address); please contact your coordinator for details.

Please do not send cash, cheques, gift cards and any other valuable items via standard post. Extra services are offered by express shipping companies, like FedEx and DHL.


Parcels arriving at HSE via the Russian postal system, FedEx, DHL and other companies are delivered to the HSE Administrative Office at 20 Myasnitskaya str., Room 441 or at 11 Pokrovsky blvd, Room M118. They are received by the HSE Administrative Office staff and registered within the system. Then the recipient or the secretary of his/her department is informed about the delivery by corporate e-mail.

Receiving packages at the post office

If you receive a notification from the post about a package, please go to the post office mentioned in the notification. To get your package you’ll need to bring your passport and a Russian translation. All packages will be kept for 30 days, after which they are returned to the sender.

The simplest way of mailing a letter with the stamps attached is by putting it in one of the blue mail-boxes. These can be found near all local post-offices and at different locations throughout the city. Every post-office also has more mail-boxes indoors. The mail-boxes can be blue for all mail, red – only for mail inside Moscow and yellow – for express mailing in Russia. 
Note! Letters are collected from mail-boxes:
  - Monday to Friday - twice a day (in the morning and at the evening)
  - Saturday and Sunday - once in the middle of the day.
  - The collection schedule is written on the front of each mail-box.


Envelopes, postcards and postage stamps are available at all post offices (there are over 590 offices throughout the city). Postcards and envelopes are also available at Rospechat (Роспечать) newsagent kiosks; cards can be found at most bookshops.You can mail your cards or letters at the post office (look for the closest office to your location at the web site).
