Mailbox Security and Privacy

Security

Sof the mail is something everyone takes for granted. People send their mail with all the confidence in the world that it will reach its destination – safely, soundly, and confidentially. They have a good reason for this belief. The Postal Service has a long history of maintaining high ethical standards. We work hard to maintain the same standards for you, our customers.

Our facility is secured and only our staff have access to our facility. All visitors inside our facility must be escorted. Only the person with the combination to a mailbox or a call notice may pickup the mail. If you lose a call notice, or in the rare instance the mailbox lock is broken, you must present photo identification to claim your mail and then we will only give you your mail, no one else's.

Mailbox Combinations

All student mailboxes have a combination lock. It is up to you to protect the combination to your mailbox. Possession of a combination is the right to the mail in that mailbox.

If your forget your combination, you can get it again at the window during regular window hours. For your protection, you must present photo identification and we will only give you the combination to your mailbox.

Privacy

As a matter of privacy, we cannot tell anyone over the telephone if we have mail for them. You must come and check the mail in your mailbox yourself. The only information we can release is someone's mailbox number. If you do not want this information released, you must complete a form requesting the withholding of "Directory Information" with the Student Life Office.
