Policy Considerations

  • The student is issued a mail box key. Replacement keys are not available for lost keys; broken keys can be replaced for $10. If the key is lost, we will replace the lock. The cost for this is $35.
  • Packages for students who do not hold a mail box may be returned without notifying the student. If you are mailing a package to a student who does not have a mail box, please put “New Student” or “Enrolled Student” and we’ll try.
  • We don’t have a method to refrigerate packages. If a student is expecting a package with perishable items, it’s important they come promptly to collect their package.
  • We have purchased a contact-free package notification and “sign as received” system. Bear with us as it is implemented.
  • “Last semester” students who are not registered for “this semester” will have first class mail forwarded for sixty days; unless temporary arrangements are made packages will be returned to sender. Students who are not registered for the summer must be registered for the fall to use the mailroom during the summer.
