Printing and mailing services
Printing and mailing services is the part of Goshen College’s business office that oversees incoming and outgoing mail and packages, photocopying, paper purchasing and several other items. Printing and mailing services are located in the basement of Coffman Hall.
During check-in, you will receive the key or combination to your mailbox, which is located in the Union building. All full and part-time students, including those commuting from off campus, receive a mailbox and will want to check it regularly, since things like class papers and other important items are frequently sent via campus mail.
Students, faculty and staff may all be reached through this free service. To help keep mail flowing, all mail should be at least 3 inches by 5 inches. No food may be sent through campus mail (unless it is as a separate package, as in the case of a care package). When sending 10 or more items, it is helpful to alphabetize them by the first letter of the last name and rubber band them together.
Letters and items sent through the U.S. Postal System are received at the college and placed in your mailbox in the Union.
If you receive a package that is too big to fit into your mailbox or an item that needs to be signed for (such as a registered mail piece or certified letter), you will receive an email. To claim the item, stop by printing and mailing services.
There is no charge to receive faxes at the college if they are sent to (574) 535-7234. We will send you an e-mail asking you to stop by printing and mailing services to pick up your fax. You may send faxes from the fax machine in the Administration Building or at the Welcome Center, but you must have a long distance calling card when sending long distance or international faxes.
Books of 42 cent stamps are available for purchase through the ATM in the Union. Those and other stamps are also available for purchase, either as a book or roll, or on an individual basis, at printing and mailing services.
A wide range of providers offer service to campus, including the U.S. Postal Service, UPS, DHL Worldwide and Fed Ex. To send packages, including by overnight or second day air, bring them to printing and mailing services.
Printing and mailing services oversees all of the copiers on campus. Personal copies can be made in one of two places. The library has three copiers with vending machines attached. Copies are 10 cents per page. If you anticipate making multiple copies over the course of the year, you can purchase a vend-a-card that will provide you with 125 “clicks” for $10 (eight cents per page). For longer runs, you can bring a set of clean originals to printing and mailing services, and the project will normally be completed and ready for your pickup within 24 hours. We also have paper available for purchase.
There are two options for color printing and photocopying on campus. For small jobs, you can use the color laser printer in the computer labs. You can submit longer runs to printing and mailing services for production.
Payment for printing and mailing services, including stamp purchases, package sending, black and white and color copying, is by cash or check.
