New Student Mailbox and Address Policy Announcement

August 27th, 2010 — 12:55pm

New Changes to Student Mailboxes

To improve the distribution of student mailboxes on campus, Central Services is implementing a new student mailbox distribution methodology.  Instead of students receiving a new mailbox every fall semester, students will receive a mailbox number and keep the same mailbox for four years.

In the Mail Center, the mailboxes are arranged in numeric order. To ensure that the mail is sorted into the appropriate student mailbox, it’s imperative that to include the mailbox number on all correspondence.

Full name, WC Box Number

Please also arrange the mailing in numeric order before bringing it to Central Services.

Faculty and staff can search the “Online Directory” for a particular student’s mailbox number or to obtain a list of student names and mailbox numbers at admin.washcoll.edu. Please click on “Online Directory” and login to gain secure access to this information.

If you have issues or concerns or need more information, please contact Beverly Nickerson at ext 7282.

Personal Mail & Packages

December 9th, 2009 — 11:43am

Central Services has recently begun seeing an increase in the number of personal shipments arriving for staff and faculty at their facilities. This is especially true as the holiday season approaches, with more and more gifts items for home and not work piling up in the Central Services space.

Due to a lack of physical space in the Central Services work area, we request that you do not have your personal holiday shopping – or personal shipments at any other time of the year – delivered to Washington College.

Central Services understands that there are emergency situations where personal items like medicines or overnighted documents must be delivered to your work address and we will work with you to accommodate these situations.

If you have any questions or concerns about personal shipments, please contact the Central Services Front Desk at 410-778-7871.
