Welcome to the Delaware Valley University Mail Center! Here are some helpful tips and important information regarding the on campus Mail Center.
- All resident students are assigned a numbered mailbox that is retained as long as they are a full-time resident students. Students who do not live on campus are not permitted to have a mailbox.
- All mail sent to you must include your box number for — letters, newspapers, magazines, packages, etc. — must have your complete address as shown below. (Do not use your combination numbers in your address!)
Delaware Valley University
700 East Butler Avenue
Doylestown, PA 18901-2607
- Mail received without your mailbox number or the University’s name could be delayed in reaching you or returned to the sender.
- When packages are delivered to the Mail Center by the USPS, UPS or Fed Ex, a notice will be placed in your mailbox for package pick-up. No package will be given to you without the proper University I.D. or other valid photo I.D., i.e. drivers license.
- Faculty and other members of the University community use the University’s intra-campus mail system to deliver notices to you. Failure to frequently check your mailbox will not be accepted as an excuse for not receiving your mail.
- Check your mailbox regularly — you have access to your mailbox from 8 a.m. through 11 p.m. — seven days a week.
- Remember to lock your mailbox door after removing your mail by either turning the dial on a combination lock box or removing your key from a key mailbox. Double check to be sure that the door is closed and locked.
- Please do not ask the Mail Center clerk to give you another student’s mail. You will need a written notice from you to the mail center if you want another student to pick up your mail/package. It is a FEDERAL OFFENSE to tamper with or open a mailbox belonging to someone else.
- Always have your key available or use your combination. A Mail Center clerk will not remove your mail from your mailbox without seeing your University I.D. or other valid photo identification.
- Apply sufficient postage to all outgoing mail. If you are uncertain about the correct amount of postage to use when mailing something, a Mail Center clerk will gladly weigh your letter/package to be certain the postage used is correct.
- Outgoing mail can be given to a Mail Center clerk or deposited in the door slot located next to the bookstore. Ensure that your mail has sufficient postage. Outgoing mail will be picked up at the end of the day.
- USPS money orders may be purchased (with cash only) from 8:30 a.m. through 2 p.m. The Mail Center cannot cash money orders or checks.
- Change of Address: If you have a new permanent home address, a new off campus address, or a temporary summer address, etc. you must report your new address to both the Registrar’s Office, located on the 2nd floor of Lasker Hall and the Mail Center.
