The operating hours of the new student mail center will be 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM Monday – Friday and 10 AM to 12 PM on Saturday. Summer Hours are Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Closed Saturday and Sunday.  Accountable mail, which includes 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. You will be required to show your 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 your 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 be sending emails to your student email address. Packages not retrieved within 30 days will be returned to the sender.  

A variety of products and services will be available at the new student mail center including the ability to send outgoing packages through UPS and letters and parcels through the United States Postal Service (USPS), the purchase of postage stamps, notary services, color/ black and white copy services, document binding services, incoming/outgoing fax services, passport photos, scanning of documents, and much more.
