If you do not complete your mail forwarding information, any USPS flat mail sent to your on-campus residence may be returned to sender or forwarded to the permanent address you have on file with the university.

Rules and regulations about package forwarding are made by the individual vendor. For information on package forwarding after move out, please contact the agent that delivered your package.

Flickinger Court students are also encouraged to complete a mail forwarding card with the United States Postal Service (www.usps.com).

Delivery Delays

Due to increased safety measures in response to COVID-19, there may be longer delays in mail and package delivery for fall 2020.  Although you may get notification by a third party vendor that your package has been delivered, it still may take Campus Living several additional days to process your package. Students should only pick up their package after being notified by Campus Living that their package is available for pick-up.
