MAILING ADDRESS

Your mail is very important to us, and we want to make sure you receive it. We will make every effort to identify the owner of a package; but, if for some reason a package is not marked with a proper Name and/or mailing address, we may not be able to guarantee delivery. All packages with a tracking number are recorded. If a recipient is not identified, the tracking number will be used to assure the parcel is delivered properly.

We recommend all student mail and packages are addressed to the appropriate dorm building to which they reside. There are some exceptions to those living in off campus dormitory and buildings further from center campus, such as Pennbrook apartments.
