Information regarding mailboxes and delivery
Mailboxes are provided free of charge to resident students. Each student will receive a personal mailbox number and a combination or mailbox key when they move in. Mailboxes are located in the lobby of each building.
Incoming mail will be placed in mailboxes, Monday through Friday by 4pm.
Students will be notified using their University email account when packages or other items too large for the mailbox arrive. Once notified, packages may be picked up at room 002 located on the ground floor of CPVA, Monday through Friday from 9:30am to 4:30pm. Students must show their University ID for identity verification to pick up packages. Packages that are not picked up within 10 business days will be returned to sender to ensure timely pick-up and to create the necessary space for student packages arriving daily. Costs incurred to return packages will be charged to the sender. Students will be responsible for any charges that cannot be billed to the sender. A hold will be placed on the student's University account until the balance due is paid in full.
The University will make every effort to deliver packages to students on a timely basis, however delivery is not guaranteed unless they are properly addressed. Properly addressed items should include:
Residence Halls, Building Name, Room, Box
285 Old Westport Road
North Dartmouth, MA 02747-2300
It is important to take safety mesures with regard to your mailbox. Lost or tampered mail should be reported to the OHRL immediately.
Mailboxes are located in the residence halls as well as the Campus Center. Proper postage is required. Arrangements for outgoing package pick-up or express mail may be made with on campus mail services, located in the basement of the Group VI academic building.
Helpful tips for parents and students
- DO NOT send cash in the mail!
- Anything of value should be sent registered or certified. This applies to both letters and parcels. UPS, FedEx, DHL, and others provide routine tracking methods and insurance for their shipments.
- Purchase insurance when shipping valuables so that you are protected against loss or damage.
- Medications should be phoned in to a local pharmacy. If you must send medication, send it registered or certified.
- Time sensitive material should be sent well in advance and by land or air carriers using guaranteed overnight or similar time frames.
