Mail & Packages
Mail and package services are available to all students who live on campus.
Services vary based on living option. Students living in select residence halls have mail and packages delivered to a central service center. Students living in Swanson Hall have mailboxes located in the main lobby. On-campus apartment students have mailboxes located in their building.
Residence halls have daily mail pick-up and delivery at each service center (except Sunday and holidays).

Resident Mailboxes and Service Center Locations
United States Postal Service (USPS) letters are delivered to the service center located at Wilkerson Service Center with the exception of Swanson Hall and UPlace and distributed to a student’s mailbox. USPS packages only, which do not require a signature, are available for pick up at a resident’s complex service center (see below).
Mailboxes are located on the main floor of Swanson Hall by the hall office.
Packages for All Halls
- All FedEx, UPS, and accountable deliveries addressed to students in the residence halls are delivered to the Wilkerson Commons Service Center.
- Students are sent a text to their mobile phone and an email notification to their University email when their package is available for pickup.
- A photo ID is required to pick up packages.
- Anything too large to fit into a mailbox is considered a package (approximately 3 ½” x 4 ½”).
- There may be a difference in the date the package arrives on campus and when it's ready for pick up due to the volume of mail processed at the service center.
- The service center will be closed on holidays observed by the University.
Mail is delivered to Wilkerson Service Center Monday through Saturday, unless changed by the U.S. Postal Service. It will be distributed daily by 5:00 pm to your mailbox located in each complex main lounge area, with the exception of Swanson Hall, whose residents receive mail at their hall. Students may not have explosives or ammunition delivered to their residence hall address.
