Facilities and Services
Commons Post Office
It is important to check your box daily. Since you will be sharing your box with others, take only the mail that is addressed to you. If you find mail in your box that does not belong to you or your box mates, mark in pencil “wrong box” and place mail in the campus mail slot. Your box is only for U.S. mail and official correspondence. Mail between students will not be delivered.
When leaving a note for faculty in the post office, place your name and box number in the upper left-hand corner.
If you receive magazines, newspapers, third-class mail, etc., while you are here on campus, be aware these are not forwarded to you after you leave.
If you receive mail that is too large for your mailbox, you will receive an e-mail notification to claim your package. Packages may be claimed by presenting your PCC Card at the Commons Post Office.
Please note that any confirmation regarding package delivery from U.S. Postal Service (USPS) only indicates that the package has been delivered to a local USPS post office. Please allow time for the package to be received and processed in the Commons Post Office.
If you have any questions regarding the condition of the item(s), please contact the USPS or the shipping company. You may also visit https://www.usps.com/help/missing-mail.htm to submit a search request for missing items.
The Commons Post Office offers UPS shipping services. Packages with pre-paid/pre-printed labels can be taken to the C-PO as a drop-off point for UPS, USPS, and FedEx. Due to UPS and USPS regulations, the Commons Post Office cannot ship to P.O. Boxes or handle return-to-sender packages. International shipping is also available.
Lost and Found
Lost items may be claimed at the Commons Post Office for $2 per item. After two weeks, held items will be considered abandoned and discarded or donated to charity. Money and valuables (e.g., jewelry) will be held for a year. You may also fill out a Lost and Found form at the Commons Post Office for items that have not yet been received in Lost and Found.
