How the Mail and Package Centers Work

  1. Mail and packages arrive at the Foster-Walker package center and the mailroom staff organizes everything by building before distributing it.
    • Packages that arrive over the weekend will not be delivered to the Kemper Package Center until Monday morning.
    • Please note that on the tracking of your package, the “delivered” status sometimes means that the package has been delivered to the Evanston post office and not necessarily to campus. Once the package is received on campus, you will get an email stating that you have a package to pick up. We have found that the post office gets this mail to us within 24 hours of it being scanned in at the post office.
  2. Students receive an email notification to pick up any items that don’t fit in mailboxes at their package center.
  3. Students must present their WildCARD to retrieve a package.
  4. Packages will be returned to sender or forwarded (USPS only) if they are not picked up by the last day of the month following the month in which the package was received. All November packages will be returned to sender or forwarded on February 1 instead of January 1 to accommodate the various end of Fall Quarter and Winter Break schedules.
