Mail Services

Students have the option to request a mailbox for mail and package delivery.  The mailbox is not associated with your room.  The MHC, Downtown Commons, and Lassonde Studios have mailboxes within their building area.  All other residents will be assigned a mailbox in the PHC. Please review the new mail process for Downtown Commons below.

Signing up for a mailbox

You can sign up for a mailbox in Housing U prior to the start of the academic year. Your mailbox assignment will be emailed to you prior to the start of the semester.

Packages can be picked up one all of the mail is processed, generally after 5:00 p.m.  You will receive a package slip in your mailbox.  You will also receive an email to your Umail letting you know that you have a package.  Please bring your student ID to pick up your package.

Downtown Commons Mail Process

As of February 27, 2017 the following process regarding all packages or large envelopes was implemented for Downtown Commons.

Pre-move in, sending your packages and forwarding your mail

We are able to accept your mail and packages up to seven days prior to move in.  Please send a notice to your mailroom of your intent to send packages early to ensure that you have an active mailbox.

Prior to move out, please complete a forwarding address request to the email address of your mailroom so that we can forward your mail to you for 30 days.  If you move out for the summer but return in the fall we will forward your mail until you move back in.
