  • All other deliveries made by the U.S. Postal Service, UPS, Federal Express. DHL and their courier services are received at the University Post Office, not at the residence halls.
  • The student address on packages must include the box number.

Forwarding

If students wish to have mail forwarded to another address, after graduating/transferring the University Post Office change of address form must be completed. If the University Post Office does not receive this form, mail will continue to be put in the student’s mailbox and returned to sender after 30 days. The USPS will NOT forward students mail from UMW.
