Large packages are shipped and received at the Physical Plant. Contact the Shipping and Receiving Department for shipping specifications, such as size and weight limitations. All packages sent through UPS must be prepaid. Shipping and Receiving is located at the rear of the Physical Plant.

UPS deliveries are left at the Physical Plant, where they are checked in and then forwarded to the post office. Very large packages are kept at the Physical Plant. Notification is sent by campus mail. To claim a package, you must present the notification slip. Any packages that are delivered to you must be picked up immediately, as there is a lack of storage space. The Physical Plant Shipping and Receiving Department is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., x7653.

Each student is assigned a mailbox with a combination lock and a duplicate combination card. We advise you to place one in a safe place and carry the other one with you to check your mail. Lost or misplaced cards will be reissued 24 hours after a request for a replacement card is made. Mail may be sent anywhere on campus via campus mail, using campus mailboxes or baskets in any office where there is a mail pick-up. To safeguard mail, follow these guidelines: do not mail cash; when sending money, use a postal money order or check that requires the bearer to present identification before it can be cashed; and use certified mail to send valuables and request a receipt.

You may purchase packaging material at the campus bookstore, as the post office does not supply these items. Your transaction will be quicker and more efficient if all outgoing packages are sealed and addressed prior to shipping.

Tampering with the mail is a federal offense and is subject to disciplinary action by the College. Only post office employees are allowed behind the counter in the post office. Direct any complaints of mail tampering to the postal clerk immediately.
