Where is my mailbox located? 

All student mail and packages are delivered to Office Services, 123 Krasa Center, and may be picked up from that location.  Offices Services is open Monday-Friday, 8:00AM-4:00PM.  Students will be notified of package deliveries, but those students expecting mail should stop by Office Services to see if they have mail waiting.  Students need to present their ID to receive mail or packages.

Students are advised to check the correct formatting for campus addresses for both residence halls and apartments and advise family members and other parties as to the specific way to label packages and mail.

What happens when I receive a package from the post office or delivery service?

Many students receive packages from home or order items online. If these items are too large for your mailbox, we will need to notify you so that you can pick the item up at the Mailroom. We encourage all students to fill out a cellphone notification card so that we can notify you of delivery.

Can I buy stamps at the Mailroom?

Yes, the Mailroom sells stamps and accepts letters and parcels for mailing. You can deposit letters using the mail slot located near the Mailroom entrance 24 hours a day. The Mailroom will provide a brochure listing other services. Please make time to review.

Can I send a fax at the Mailroom?

Yes, for a $1 fee, the Mailroom will send a fax message for you. Please note, the fee is higher for long distance and faxes sent to foreign countries.
