Street Standards

BANNER address format allows three lines of street address information.

All information is to be entered using title-case format (uppercase/lowercase letters). Never use all uppercase or all lowercase letters. Enter the address using standard capitalization rules.

Punctuation Rules:
Punctuation is never used except:

Slashes (/) may be used to designate a fraction in a street address (see example below)

The Ampersand (&) can be used. Do not spell out the word "and."

"In Care Of" should be entered as (C/O) in uppercase letters.
Do not use the percent sign (%) or spell out (in care of).

Correct:
Smith & Smith Co
C/O John Smith
Mid Island Plz
392 Rd
101 1/2 Main St
289 01 Montgomery Ave
3454 N Jones No 4

Incorrect:
Smith and Smith Co.
co John Smith
Mid-Island Plaza
392 Road
101 1/2 Main Street
289-01 Montgomery Ave
3454 N. Jones #4

Secondary Address Unit Designators:

If the address is multi-unit apartment or building, place the room, suite, or apartment number to the right of the street address. If the secondary unit designator is not provided and only a # along with the number is provided (i.e., 3454 N Jones #4 remove the (#) and abbreviate as No 4). Although the # sign is preferred by the U.S. Postal Service, ORACLE does not permit using "#" within BANNER; therefore, never use the pound sign (#).

The following abbreviations are to be used without punctuation:

EX: 102 Main St Apt 101

Northeast - NE
West - W
Southeast - SE
North - N
Southwest - SW
South - S
Northwest - NW

Street Address with PO Box:

BANNER address format allows three lines of street address information. If both the physical street address and PO Box number are given as one mailing address, enter both.

Note: Some international addresses require both a Box number and physical street address to be mailable.

Dr John F Smith
Evergreen Building
1379 NW Pine
PO Box 2351
Portland OR 97203


Mailing Address...

Important: International Students residing in the U.S. must have a current physical address for legal reasons.
Vendors must also have a physical address. In both cases, a PO Box address is optional only as a second address.
