Student Mailboxes on Campus

Student mailboxes are located on the ground floor in the Joan Weill Student Center.

Window Hours:
Monday – Friday 12pm – 2pm and 6pm to 8pm
Saturday – 12pm to 2pm 

How to Open Your Box

  1. Clear your combination. Spin your lock about 5 times to the left.
  2. Turn your lock to the left and stop on the first number of your combination.
  3. Turn your lock to the right once and skip your second combination number once.
  4. Keep spinning right and land on the second number of your combination.
  5. Turn your lock left and land on the last number of your combination.
  6. Turn your lock slightly right (by just a few digits) and your lock will release. Pull it open.

* If your lock randomly “freezes up” a bit as you spin, firmly keep turning. It will move!

Mail Distribution

  • Any letters, magazines, postcards etc., are delivered to students’ mailboxes which students check at their convenience.
  • Packages need to be pick up during mailroom window hours, students must bring ID and the number card that was place in their mailbox.

If your tracking alerts say “delivered,” it means the package has arrived on campus, not to the mailroom. It could take up to an additional day to make it to the mailroom.

Outgoing Mail

Outgoing mail should be dropped in the USPS collection box in front of the Post Office on campus. There is no outgoing mail available at the mailroom. If you need assistance with certified mail, a regular post office box, or other USPS services, the Post Office hours are:

Monday – Saturday 8am to 12pm

Semester Mail Delivery Dates

  • Fall: Delivery begins on Friday before the start of fall semester and ends on Friday of finals week.
  • Spring: Delivery resumes on Friday before spring classes begin and ends on Friday of finals week.
