Mail and packages are distributed weekday mornings, except holidays, in student mailboxes in the lower level of the Student Center by Jake’s Place. Students are assigned a mailbox number that can be found on the Identity site. Mailbox keys are issued by request only. Students must fill out a key request form or contact mail services to receive a mailbox key. If a key is lost or not returned, a $30 replacement fee will be charged to the student’s account.

Parents, friends and businesses mailing to students must include the student’s name and mailbox number to ensure their mail and packages reach the student efficiently and as promptly as possible.

Students who move off campus will need to give all persons/agencies their new mailing address. This includes banks or government agencies. Mail services does not have the capability to forward mail or packages to students who move off campus. All mail and packages for students who no longer live on campus, will be returned to sender.

Small parcels such as phone cases, t-shirts, etc. will be placed directly into the student’s mailbox. It is incumbent upon students to check their mailbox in a timely fashion.

Larger packages will be placed into a parcel locker. See lockers below for more information.

Oversize packages, that do not fit in the locker, will be held in mail services for pickup. The student will receive an email notifying them that the package is in mail services for pickup.

Packages received with incomplete information and are unidentifiable as to who it belongs to, will be returned to the sender.

Packages that require a signature (such as Apple products or medication) are signed for by mail services.

Parcel lockers: located in the Student Center hallway by the cafeteria cashier. Students will receive an email when their package is ready for pick-up. The email will contain a 6-digit code that can be either manually entered or scanned at the parcel locker. If the student receives more than one email, on the same day, it means there is more than one package in the locker. After receiving the notification, students have 5 days to retrieve packages from the locker. If the package is not retrieved in the allotted time, it will be returned to the sender. Parcel lockers are available for use 6-12 a.m. during regularly scheduled semesters.

Amazon lockers: located outside of Jake’s Place. Lockers are available to the Albright community for retrieving Amazon packages 24/7, 365 days. Students, staff and faculty must be present on campus to ship packages to the college address. Packages must be picked up within 48 hours of delivery.
