Campus Post Office
Dining Complex, Ground Floor
The Campus Post Office is located on the ground floor of the Dining Hall Complex next to the Bookstore. Arcadia students, faculty members and staff can purchase stamps, envelopes and mail packages during the window hours—weekdays, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Students have a choice to pay for these services using cash or by charging to their student ID. Student ID charges must have a minimum $5.00 purchase.
All resident students will be assigned a campus mailbox. Mail sent to a resident student at Arcadia University should be addressed as follows:
John Smith – Student
450 S. Easton Road
Glenside, PA 19038
Commuter students will receive a mailbox upon request. Do NOT instruct the sender to put your mailbox number on your mail and please avoid using nicknames. This will create delays or possible non-delivery from the Post Office. Students will not have the same mailbox every year. Each academic year, any returning student will have a different mailbox than the one from the previous year. Students can pick up their new assignment at Mail and Print Services each September.
Students will be notified via e-mail when a package has arrived for them. The contents of the e-mail will have the student’s name, time package arrived, package carrier (UPS, FedEx, Amazon and USPS), and sender of the package. (Please note that some places like Amazon consider a package delivered when it reaches the Glenside Post Office. They will send you an email stating that your package was delivered even though the Arcadia mailroom will not pick up that package until the following morning at 9am. Once the package is scanned in you will receive the email from firstname.lastname@example.org )
Mail and Print Services cannot forward mail to a student’s home address. After the academic year is over, we suggest that students change their address back to their home address for any mail they want to continue to receive during the summer (Netflix, credit card statements etc.). Students can request a summer mailbox at the end of the year if they plan to stay on campus. All first class mail and packages will be returned to the sender if mail is unclaimed or a summer box is not requested. The USPS prohibits mail to be forwarded from a temporary address (Arcadia) to a permanent address (home).
