Checking in with Mail Services: Reminders about new safety policies and proper addressing guidelines

Hello Campus Community,

Mail Services in the Office of Communication & Marketing would like to​ remind ​the campus community about proper addressing when sending and receiving mail and packages.

Resident students and faculty and staff are encouraged to view and follow the linked guidelines to help ensure that materials are sent and received without delays due to improper addresses.

We also want to ​reshare the following updates ​that took effect​ ​beginning Monday, Oct. 5​, and will continue through the fall semester.

​As a front-line area, we made the following changes to help ensure everyone’s continued safety on campus: 

  • We ask visitors to please use both mail windows in the hallway outside of Mail Services. One ​window is for students, ​and one is for faculty and staff.
  • ​Due to a rotating on-campus schedule, Mail ​Services staff will not be delivering mail as a standard practice.​ Please plan to pick up and drop off your mail and packages.
  • ​Depending on daily volume, ​we will provide spot deliveries​ to department​s that have packages: ​Mail Services will call ​those departments before we deliver.
  • Mail (including for the Residence Halls) and packages will be available for pickup Mon​day – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. ​Note that Mail Services will follow the College’s intercession hours (8 a.m. – 4 p.m.), from Friday, Nov. 27 – Friday, Jan. 15, 2021.

​Please feel free to contact us at 845-257-3122 or with any questions.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding!

Cherie Rizza, Mail Services Coordinator
