Regulations

  • All mail is distributed by mail employees only.
  • All mail must conform to size limitations and proper folds as stated on our website.
  • If there is more than one item to an individual mailing, you must attach them together in some way. (Rubber band, tape or place in a bag) This means no attaching candy or any item to a piece of paper for distribution.
  • All mailings over 50 pieces must be registered in advance. First registered, first served.
  • All mailings 20 pieces or more must be in mail box order and have a return address. This helps us return mail when the recipient is not here, and lets the sender know that the recipient did not receive the piece of mail. Helpful hint: when bringing a mailing over 20 pieces but not more than 50 put a rubber band around them to keep them in order. When students are not busy we usually place these directly into mailboxes.
  • We will not distribute any mail that is brought to us with a post-it-note attached. All items must have a readable name and box number adhered so that it will not easily fall off. This includes notebooks and books.
  • ABSOLUTELY NO STAPLES!

The mail room is not responsible for any money that is distributed.

Professors returning papers:

The Student Mailroom maintains high standards in regards to confidentiality.  It is important if you are returning papers with a grade on them, that the paper be folded in either half or thirds with the grade to the inside with a readable name and box number on the outside.  All mailings 20 pieces or more need to be in numerical order. Please print a distribution registration form to fill out. If you have any questions, you may contact the student mailroom supervisor, Zair Ulsh, at ulshz@dickinson.edu.

Any questions please come to the FAS window. Thank you.
