Packages and Pickup

If someone is sending you packages or mail, be sure to inform them of the proper format for sending mail to you. The proper format is as follows:

Student Name
[C-Box Number] ( “C” stands for “campus” )
716 Beall Ave.
Wooster, OH 44691

This form of address is to be used on all mail sent to you and it is important that your box number be included. Please include your middle initial as many students have the same first and last names.

Please do not address mail to “P. O. Box ____” as this is not a post office box. Room numbers, residence hall names, nicknames, illegible handwriting, mail in the name of a parent, or missing box numbers, will also delay delivery of your mail or it may be returned to sender, if it cannot be identified.

When the package reaches The College of Wooster and is processed, you will receive an email from postoffice@wooster.edu (emails from carriers like UPS, FedEx, and Amazon are not an indication your package is ready for pick up). Please allow 24 hours for us to process due to high volume.

You must have your College of Wooster ID to pick up items at the campus Post Office. Students may pick up their package Monday-Friday 9 am- 5pm and 11 am- 3pm on Saturdays. Hours are subject to change during break times.

Because of limited storage facilities, it is recommended that packages be picked up within five business days from the date received.
