Frequently Asked Questions

I'm a student living in campus housing and expecting a package, how do I retrieve it? 
For security purposes, the DSU Mail Room holds all student packages or anything with tracking. Please show valid DSU ID card to retrieve your package.

Letter mail can be picked up in your mailbox that was assigned to you, package notices will be placed into student mailboxes. Take that notice into the mailroom to receive your package.

When is mail sent/received? 
Outgoing USPS letter mail deadline is 12 p.m. (noon).  Blue drop box outside the Stoxen Library, or letter drop located outside DSU Mail Room.

Outgoing package deadline is 9 a.m. (Delivery drivers pick up packages in the mailroom daily between 9 – 9:30 a.m. – anything dropped after will go out the next business day).

Mail is held at the Post Office for Saturday deliveries and is not sent to DSU until Monday.

Mail is received throughout the day from several different carriers.  Please give time for the mailroom coordinator to sort all mail, as packages cannot be released until scanned through our system. 

I'm a student, how can I pay for postage? 
At the DSU Mail Room you can purchase  metered postage and a small variety of envelopes, but only accepts cash or checks. There are several options for students who need a letter or package sent. The DSU Mail Room is available for assistance with your mailing needs.   

The mailroom has a scale if mail is needed to be weighed. For packages, you may go online to websites to pay for postage: FedEx.com  /  UPS.com  /  USPS.com  (enter a credit card to pay). 

What about international mail?
International mail can also be sent out at an additional cost – packages need to include an International/Customs Form which the DSU mailroom can provide. Typically postage is paid online for all international packages.

How do I get a mailbox? 

Students may sign up for a mailbox by coming by the mailroom to fill out a form and pick up a key.  Lost mailbox keys will result in a $50 fine.

Faculty and Staff have a departmental mailbox inside the mailroom. We have a mail delivery person that delivers departmental mail and packages daily, or they can pick up directly from the mailroom.
