USPS Mail – Residence Halls and Jones Hall

Packages, Registered Mail, FedEx, and UPS Packages – Residence Halls and Jones Hall
Packages, registered mail, FedEx, and UPS are delivered to Mail Services Distribution Services located in the General Services Building (open 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Friday). Students will be notified via email or telephone when a package arrives for pickup/signature. A valid UE student ID and signature are required before packages are released for student pickup. For security reasons, student IDs are matched to the shipping name prior to package release.

Mail and Packages in Village Properties – Village Apartments, Houses, and Townhouses
Mail and packages are delivered to external mailboxes by USPS personnel. USPS, FedEx, and UPS deliveries are handled directly by the corresponding service provider. At times, USPS may leave a small brownish peach and/or green slip that indicates that your package must be picked up at the post office located on Washington Avenue.
Special Deliveries – Flowers, Edible Arrangements, Birthday Muffins, etc.
Special occasion deliveries are best to be scheduled during the standard work week. When placing a special order, vendors should be provided with the student’s hall, room, address, and cell phone number for the delivery label. We prefer that the vendor contact the student directly by cell to arrange delivery. Additional support is provided by Student Life staff for Valentine’s Day.
Summer - Sending Packages and Mail prior to Move-in Dates
Due to storage and staffing limitations, mail and packages should not be sent any earlier than two weeks before the first day of classes. Items arriving prior to Wednesday, August 8, 2018, may be returned to sender.
Please note that full service mail deliveries may not be made until the Thursday prior to the regular August opening date (on new student move-in day for the August SOAR). As normal mail delivery is not available prior to that date – check with residence life staff to retrieve priority items (medication, essential paperwork, etc.)
Students living in University housing can request that UE forward mail to a new address.
Summer address changes:
- Step 1: Log on to WebAdvisor.
- Step 2: Select "Current Students.”
- Step 3: Select "Addresses on File.” At the bottom of that screen, enter your seasonal address info. Be sure to include an end date if applicable.
Bulk mail and magazines will not be forwarded. Students must contact organizations that send bulk mail and magazines regarding their summer address. Music will be forwarded with postage due. If a forwarding address is not provided, all first class mail will be forwarded to the home address on record.
Village residents must change their address through the US post office as well. The Internet link for the USPS change of address form is: moversguide.usps.com.
Note: Mail forwarding by the University is done as a courtesy. Mail is not forwarded when the University is closed. Students not returning in the fall are strongly encouraged to contact businesses and organizations to change mailing address information. The University is not responsible for fines or penalties related to delayed mail delivery.
