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.  Any regular UPS mail that is shipped to the Head of College’s Office will be rerouted through the package receiving center and will take a longer time to arrive.

For next-day overnight UPS shipping, you can ship to the Package Center. Urgent packages and mail may be shipped to the Head of College’s Office with advance permission–please use this option sparingly and only with permission from the Head’s Senior Administrative Assistant II, Mary Powers.
