*mail and packages for students are sorted in house by the WC Central Services staff. Students will receive an email from:
when their mail or package is ready for pickup! Please do not come to Central Services to pick up your mail or package until you have received an email from us!
Incoming Campus Mail:
Incoming USPS mail and packages typically can arrive on campus to be checked in anytime Monday through Friday from 10:30 am to the end of the day. There are no scheduled times for deliveries to the campus from the shippers. Due to recent events there can be delays in us receiving the mail and packages from USPS in that time frame. Your USPS mail and packages may be delayed a day or so due circumstances beyond our control!
Department Delivery & Pick Up
Due to recent changes, at this time Central Services will not be delivering departmental (faculty and staff) mail and packages. Departments will at this time be responsible for coming to Central Services as often as possible to pickup their mail and packages and dropoff any outgoing mail and packages. There is now a Departmental Mail and Package Center located in the CAC lower level, next to the elevator for these services for you. Any outgoing mail received after 2:30 pm will be processed and sent out on the next business day. All outgoing departmental mail must be placed in your department's outgoing mail slot or in the outgoing mail box on the departmental table but you MUST put your department name on all outgoing mail for proper accounting. International mail must be marked and separated.
Campus mail can be mailed as single sheets or stapled packets - or confidential documents in envelopes - to campus departments, groups or individuals. See the WC Central Services Guide to Services for more information.
Central Services can help you send mail home - no matter where home is. We handle mail coming from and going to countries all around the globe and our friendly staff can help you find the best rate, properly address your letters and packages and fill out the proper customs forms.
You can also use the USPS international postage calculator to get an approximation of the postage required to mail your item.
Be sure to also review the Shipping a Package page.
