Please note: College offices use campus mailroom mailboxes and e-mail as official means for communicating with students. Students are responsible for information provided through those means.
U.S. Postal Service mail is delivered to the mailroom on the first level of the McKelvey Campus Center Monday through Saturday in the morning and is placed in student boxes every day except Saturday and Sunday.
Stamps may be purchased and letters and packages mailed during mailroom hours, weekdays from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Payment options are cash, Titan Cards or personal checks. Student's campus return address is required on all off campus mail.
Mailbox keys are issued free of charge to each new and transfer student when they arrive on campus. All students, both residents and commuters, are required to have a mailbox on campus. Students must use their key to access their mailbox. Mail Room Staff will not be responsible for getting students' mail from their mailbox. A replacement key is $5 and a photo ID will be required for purchase.
*Keys must be returned to the mailroom when any of these occur:
- Leave of Absence
- Withdrawal from the College
The Business Office will deduct $5 from student's matriculation refund if mailbox keys are not returned.
Student's mailing addresses should read as follows:
319 S. Market Street
New Wilmington, PA 16172-0001
Official notices sent through the mail and placed in a student's mailbox will be considered delivered. Students are expected to check their mailboxes daily. Addresses should include mailbox numbers for all incoming mail and packages received from all delivery companies (UPS, USPS, Fed EX, DHL). Students will receive a package pick-up card in their mailboxes to inform them that a package has arrived. Pick-up card, photo ID and signature will be required for package pick-up. Students will not be permitted to pick up mail or packages for other students.
Students should insist that any money sent through U.S. mail or intercampus mail be in the form of money orders or checks. The Mail Room will not be responsible for cash sent through intercampus mail. The College cannot be responsible for claims regarding lost or stolen U.S. mail. These claims will be handled a the New Wilmington Post Office.
An intercampus mail system is available to all students. Mail should indicate the name of the student and box number. Size of items to be mailed must be at least one-third sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" paper; this also includes the finished size of folded items. Items to be mailed that include more than ten pieces must be in mailbox number order. Larger quantities should be rubber banded.
Student organizations may send representatives to the mailroom Monday through Friday from 2-3:30 p.m. to fill students' mailboxes with flyers after (1) scheduling a time at least one day prior; and (2) completing a form (available at the mail room).
Before leaving campus in May, students will need to make temporary address changes with any senders (banks, credit card companies, subscriptions) for mail they wish to receive during the summer. The U.S. Post Office and the College do not forward students' mail addressed to the College. Permanent address changes should be made with senders when leaving Westminster for *reasons listed above. Mail will be "returned to sender" for students who leave college for *reasons listed above. Any first class mail received during the summer for returning students will be placed in their mailboxes and all other types (periodicals and catalogs) will be discarded during the summer. If you plan to be on campus during the summer months, inform mailroom personnel and your mail will be placed in your campus mailbox.
