Student mail and package pick-up

All mail and packages for students is delivered to the Mailing Center in Sorensen Hall. Students will receive an email notifying them that their package has been delivered. Students must pick up their own packages and present their student IDs. Note that deliveries are only taken between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

No mail or packages are delivered to residence halls.

Students should not schedule deliveries of perishable items, like groceries, to residence halls.

Bulk mailings

Mailings must be 200 pieces or more to receive the discounted bulk rate. The mail piece (postcard, self-folded mailer, envelope, or booklet) can be of any dimensions, but the body text must be generic, i.e., the same piece delivered to all addressees.

The piece can be hand-signed, but may not contain personal dedications or other customizations.

International addresses may not be included in bulk mailings — domestic addresses only.

For more details, and to get an estimate of the cost, contact Linda Oetken at ext. 7332.


The center ships packages from one ounce to 150 pounds via USPS, UPS and FedEx ground or express, domestic or international. Customers will receive a tracking number, and all packages are insured up to $100. More insurance is available for valuable packages.


For departmental shipping, customers should bring a budget account number, and the department will receive an internal invoice. For personal shipping, cash or personal check is required.
