Student Mail

Housing & Residence Life provides mail services to the majority of on-Grounds undergraduate residents through mailrooms in several locations.

The mailrooms deliver mail to most residential areas and provide a package pick-up point for items sent through UPS, DHL, FedEx, Priority Mail and Express Mail, and for other "accountable mail" (certified and insured).

Important things to know:

  • The mailrooms will NOT receive Registered, COD or Postage Due mail; these items must be picked up at the US Post Office.

  • The mailrooms are not able to collect outgoing mail from residents, but blue US Postal Service collection boxes are located throughout Grounds.

  • We ask senders not to send cash to on-Grounds residents by mail. All important mail and documents should be insured, so that a tracking number will be available if there is a problem.

  • Even if the shipping status is listed as "delivered", packages are not avilable for pick up until they have been routed to the appropriate mailroom. This may take up to one business day, so please wait to pick up packages until you have received email notification from Housing & Residence Life:
