Correctly addressed first class mail is sorted into student mailboxes Monday through Friday by Datrose, Inc, an outside vendor contracted to manage residential mail and parcel delivery.
Packages are delivered Monday - Saturday to residential package rooms. Residents are notified of package deliveries via email or by package slip placed in their mailbox.
Packages and accountable mail (registered, certified, etc) are inventoried and addressees verified to be residents before any notification is sent to the resident to pick up a parcel.
Correct addressing of mail and packages is critical to insure prompt delivery to our residents.
Residents can view their on campus mailing address by logging into Campus Express and choosing the "My Housing" tab.
The correct format for addressing mail for a particular College House or Sansom Place building can be found on the Proper Format page.
US Postal Service "Delivery Confirmation" services for mail sent to a College House or Sansom resident apply only for delivery to the Philadelphia Postal substation, and not for final delivery to the Penn residence. Services such as UPS, FedEx and DHL deliver directly to campus, with more accurate confirmation options.
Flowers, plants, fruit arrangements or baskets, baked goods or similar items should be sent only through local vendors or carriers.
Residents having such items sent through the USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL do so at their own risk.
Our Info Centers accept delivery of these items only when delivered by a local vendor. After the items are logged in, the Info Center will contact the resident for pick up.
Residents are asked to pick up any perishable delivery as soon as possible.
High Volume Periods:
Alternate package notification may be used during high volume periods such as Move In.
Typically the resident may receive a package slip in their student mailboxes, or may check a delivery list posted at an auxiliary pick-up location.
