This location is where all off campus mail deliveries, perishable items (ie: flowers, basket arrangements) or packages too large for a HUB box are processed. Students will receive a bright pink label in their mailbox with instructions on where their package is located. To ensure that students receive only their package, they must have their Dickinson College ID and the label from their mailbox when picking up a package. To insure that you don't lose your package slip, leave it in your mailbox until you are ready to pick up your package otherwise there is a $1.00 cash fee charged when a student does not have his/her package notice. Packages will not be given to a recipient without their College ID.  If we are unable to identify who is to receive an individual package, it will be returned to sender.

Students receiving on campus packages or any letters, papers or magazines that are too large for a student’s HUB mailbox will receive either a red or green package notice in their mailbox. The notice will direct the student to come to the Student Mail Room window to receive their item.

All package notices specify the location for pickup.

Because of storage, or the lack of, we recommend you send packages not more than two weeks in advance of the start of a semester.

It is very important that all mail for a student have their first name, middle initial and last name and be sure to always include the student HUB box number.
