Senators' and representatives' offices are housed in the Capitol Building as well as in six other buildings listed below. Despite this, constituents can write to their senators and representatives as follows:

Senator's name
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510

Representative's name United States House of Representatives Washington, DC 20515

 

Most government departments and agencies have their own ZIP Codes; the correct one should be used. The Senate ZIP Code differs from that of the House. All Senate office buildings have the 20510 ZIP Code, and all House office buildings have the 20515 ZIP Code.

Listings of specific addresses of members of Congress are in the more current edition of The Congressional Staff Directory or Congressional Quarterly's Washington Directory , both of which are available in local libraries. These books also list the home offices of members of Congress. Local telephone directories may also be consulted.
