Packages


There are several modes of delivery for packages.  Please be sure to read each section to ensure your package will be delivered to the appropriate location:

USPS

If you are receiving mail from the United States Postal Service (USPS, or regular mail), regardless of what type of service (Express, Next Day, with Delivery Confirmation, etc.), mail needs to be sent to your campus Post Office Box.

Your Name 
P.O. Box [Your Box Number]
New Haven, CT 06520

Note that USPS mail sent to the Head of College’s Office will be rerouted through Campus Mail and may take an additional two weeks to arrive. It is to your benefit not to send packages via USPS to the Head of College’s Office.

UPS

For regular UPS shipping, please ship to your P.O. Box.  The UPS packages are re-routed to the UPS substation at 143 Elm. Any regular UPS mail that is shipped to the Head of College’s Office will be rerouted through the substation and not delivered to the office. When expecting a package, await an email from the UPS Substation before picking up your package.  

Your Name 
P.O. Box [Your Box Number]

For next-day overnight UPS shipping, you can ship to the Package Center. Please note that the Head of College’s Office is only open from 9 am until 5 pm to accept packages. Anything outside of that timeframe will not be accepted. Please use this option sparingly, and only for mail that cannot be shipped to your regular campus P.O. Box.
