Campus gets new street addresses

New street addresses have been established on the main East Tennessee State University campus. Each building on campus now has its own address.
The chief reason for assigning street addresses is to update the Washington County 9-1-1 database to give emergency responders more intuitive directions for locating 9-1-1 events on campus. When members of the public need to call 9-1-1 and report 9-1-1 events, callers should give all of the information they know about their current location and the location of the 9-1-1 event.
Each building on campus has a number on the building or a sign with the building name and street address. The signs in front of the buildings give the emergency responders final confirmation that they have arrived at the correct location.
The ETSU Post Office will continue to deliver ETSU mail to university post office boxes and on-campus facilities in the same manner as they have been using the existing ETSU PO Box codes.
Students should not change their USPS mailing address. The ETSU Post Office will not use the street addresses for mail services at this time.
Building occupants should remember that the number posted in front of the building is only the block number and not the complete street address. The complete street address includes the building address and the street name.
An example of this is the Financial Services department, which has the new building address of East Tennessee State University, Financial Services Burgin Dossett Hall, Room 201 E-F 1276 Gilbreath Dr. Johnson City, TN, 37614-1710.
The USPS Mailing Address is East Tennessee State University Financial Services PO Box 70732 Johnson City, TN 37614-1710.
The new main address for the administration building, Burgin Dossett Hall, is 1276 Gilbreath Dr., replacing the previous 807 University Pkwy. Each building on campus now has its own address.

The new address should be used when ordering pizza and other food to be delivered to the residence halls.
Departments with envelopes and stationary bearing the old 807 University Pkwy. address can continue to use them until supplies are used up.
It will take some time for the entire transition to the new addresses to be completed and both addresses will be recognized for some time. It will also take some time to get the various maps updated, including on Google.
