Shipping Items to Knox

Submit Your Deposit
The Court House Tower.

People traveling to Knox may prefer shipping items, rather than transporting items themselves. Some shipping hints:

All packages must have your name and box number. Please do not add your room number. Delays could occur if you use a different name than your own. If you use a nickname please add your given name as well.

    • Refrain from shipping items that can be easily damaged. Some shippers have restrictions on extremely fragile items, such as ceramics. 
    • When shipping electronics, use the original box and packing materials, if possible, or a similar arrangement: bubble wrap around objects, box filled with suitable packing material.
    • Insure contents.  

All packages received at Knox are held in the mailroom, and a signature is required to pick them up. You will receive an email from the mailroom when your package is ready for pick up. You may send your packages during the summer and winter breaks before your arrival if you wish. This will allow you to take advantage of any items you might find on sale. 

Use this format as an example to ship to Knox College:
