Your mailing address is:

<Building number> Lawrence Drive, Apt <apt number>
Princeton, NJ 08540

Mail is delivered Monday-Saturday, usually in the afternoon. Incoming mailboxes can be found near the main entrance to each building. In buildings 2-7, a separate key is needed for the mailbox; in buildings 8-14, the regular apartment key is used for the mailbox.

FedEx, UPS, and other mail couriers come regularly to Lawrence, but it is the responsibility of residents to ensure their packages are delivered safely. Usually UPS will leave packages outside of the addressee’s door or with a neighbor, while FedEx will frequently leave packages outside of the building’s main door.

Building 10, 11, and 12 have outgoing mail slots in the wall where the mailboxes are found. Residents of other buildings have routinely left mail near their mailbox so that the postal worker would be sure to see it. This method works but is not recommended because it offers no security. The recommended method for sending mail is to drop it off in one of the buildings with a mail slot.

Unfortunately there are no mailboxes within the Lawrence complex large enough to accept packages. You may be able to add your package to your apartment’s outgoing mail; if not, you will have to use a regular mailbox or go to the post office.

Listing your Name and Number; Please send a work request with your phone number.

Guest Communication: Your telephone number has been programmed into the
telephone entry system referenced with a specific DIRECTORY CODE.  This
DIRECTORY CODE is not your telephone number, it’s just a code used to
keep your phone number secret.  When a guest comes to visit you, they
will look your name up in an ELECTRONIC DIRECTORY by using the “A” and
“Z” push buttons on the system face plate to locate your name.  When
your name is displayed in the ELECTRONIC DIRECTORY, your guest can
simply press the CALL button to establish communication with your

Alternate Guest Communication Method: Once your guest has located your
name, your DIRECTORY CODE will be displayed next to your name.  Your
guest can enter this code on the system keypad which will then place a
call to your apartment.  If your guest already knows your DIRECTORY
CODE, they can simply enter this number on the system keypad without
having to look your name up in the directory.

Granting Access: Once your have established communication and identified
your guest by answering your telephone, you have a choice to either
grant the guest access or deny the guest access. To grant access, press
the “5” button on your apartment touch tone telephone.  The telephone
entry system will respond with a 10 second tone, confirming that the
door has opened and will then disconnect itself.  The door is programmed
to open for 10 seconds then relock.  Some newer telephones emit a very
short duration tone when a number is pressed.  If your telephone does
this, you may have to press the number twice in rapid succession to open
the door.

Denying Access: press the “#” button, or simply hang up.

Other Notes:

If you are on the telephone when a guest tries to contact you from the
Door King Entry system, they will hear a busy signal.  They will not be
able to gain entry unless you have CALL WAITING.

Please keep in mind that if your cell phone signal is weak and/or
spotty, you might have difficulty activating the Door King system. There
is nothing we can do to improve the ability of cell phone users to
operate the Door King system. If your cell phone does not operate the
entry system satisfactorily, you may need to use the system with a land
line telephone.
