All mail for the Knox campus is received at the mailroom in Seymour Union. This includes all letters and packages, no matter what delivery service is used. No mail is delivered to residences or individual offices.
U.S. Mail is delivered to the mailroom every morning to be sorted and distributed to campus mailboxes.
UPS, Federal Express, other courier-delivered mail, and all parcels that are unable to fit in a mailbox are logged in and a notice is placed in the addressee's mailbox. A signature is required to pick up these items.
You will receive an email from email@example.com when a package has arrived for you. Come to the mailroom window with your ID card and ask for your package. If you do not get an email but are expecting a package, please inquire at the mailroom window. Someone will be happy to check for you.

Graduates who will be returning to campus and need to keep a campus mailbox must notify the mailroom supervisor in writing or by email within one week after graduation. Please include name and box number, and the reason for staying on campus.
