University Mail Services

Mail is delivered to the mail center in the Ceddia Union Building (CUB) at the UPS Store

All residential student mail will be handled by The UPS Store which will be centrally located in the CUB. Each residential student will be assigned a mailbox with key in which all posted mail will be placed.

8:00 AM – 5:30 PM Monday – Friday
10 AM – 12 PM on Saturday.
(717) 477-0877

Summer Hours:
Monday through Friday 9:00 AM - 5 PM and closed Saturday and Sunday. 

Mail that needs a signature, including express, certified, registered or insured mail or parcels, or any packages sent through courier services such as UPS, FEDEX or DHL must be picked up during these hours. Students will be required to show their student ID and sign for these packages.

Mail that fits into the box may be picked up during operating hours or after hours by using the student's residence hall key card to access the mail center. After-hours access will be 1/2 hour after closing and up to 1/2 hour before opening. To let resident students know if they have mail or parcels to pick-up, The UPS Store will send emails to the student's email address. Packages not retrieved within 30 days will be returned to the sender.  

A variety of products and services are available at the student mail center including:

Students are no longer required to take larger or heavier letters and parcels directly to the post office. Additionally, students can send certified mail, return receipt, and delivery confirmation from the mail center.  

To ensure quick and accurate delivery of incoming mail and parcels, please use the following mail address:
