Receiving Information

Receiving for Departments

Packages from USPS, UPS, FedEx and DHL are delivered to Mail Services in Hogarth Student Center. Campus departments are responsible for picking up and signing out all packages from Mail Services. Deliveries can be arranged through Mail Services for oversized, heavy or multiple packages. No deliveries will be made for personal items. Mail Services will continue to put package slips in department mailboxes and asks each department to check mail often and pick up packages in a timely manner due to limited space. An email is sent to the recipient as soon as it is logged in. However, this does not take the place of regularly checking your box. Emails are added as packages are received so please notify Mail Services of any changes to your email address. Mail Services isn't responsible for lost mail/packages that were never received.

--When ordering please be sure to use correct mailing address and include as much identifiable information as possible. For example:
Jane Doe
Mississippi University for Women
Department of Life
1100 College Street, MUW-1999
Columbus, MS 39701

--If you are ordering something for another department, please be sure to include the information of the department you are ordering for. You can do this by using the department's name, mailing address, etc. as the recipient. If you should forget to do this when placing the order, pleases contact Mail Services to let them know a package may come in your name, but it should go to another department. 

-- All packages must be signed out. Due to COVID, the staff will sign the packages out for you.

--Because of limited space, we ask you to please pick up all packages within 2-3 business days – of course this will vary during holidays, spring break, winter break, etc. If you think delivery will take place during your absence, please designate someone in your office to pick up package(s) or contact Mail Services at ext. 7408 for assistance.

--Please be mindful that packages received from Barefield do not contain barcodes so they can’t be tracked as efficiently as others. Mail Services is not responsible for any packages that were never received.

--Again, delivery of all big/heavy/multiple packages must be arranged through Mail Services.
