Campus Post is the designated delivery location for all mail and packages addressed to Goshen College.
All USPS mail and packages, including UPS, FedEx, Amazon, DHL, etc. are delivered to Campus Post for scanning and processing, and are available for pickup at the Service Desk window in the Union Building during open hours.
How to Pick Up Mail & Packages
When a letter or package is received by Campus Post, it is scanned into a delivery system. Students who receive a piece of mail or a package addressed to them will receive an email notifying them that they have an item to pick up. Students can pick up their mail or package at the Campus Post Service Desk in the Union Building during its stated open hours. Students MUST have their ID present in order to pick up mail or packages.
If you are not able to pick up a letter or package yourself, you may designate another campus individual to pick it up on your behalf by emailing email@example.com. Campus post will remain open during the summer for students who remain on or near campus to pick up their mail and packages.
How to Address an Envelope/Package to Campus
In order to facilitate the timely and accurate processing of packages and mail, it is best if students have mail and packages (or ask parents and others who are planning to mail or ship items to campus) addressed in the following format:
c/o Goshen College
1700 S. Main St.
Goshen, IN 46526
It is not necessary to include a dorm address, building, or department.
Temporary Forwarding Addresses
Campus Post will make every effort to reunite students who are temporarily away from campus with their mail. Students who are recently graduated or away from campus during the summer can submit a temporary mail forwarding address by filling out this Google form. Students on SST will have their mail held until they return. Students who have graduated or left the college can have mail forwarded to a new address for 12 months after their departure, but should work to ensure that their permanent address is updated for banking, periodicals, subscription services, etc. Any mail received at Campus Post after 12 months will be returned to sender or discarded.
Please note that Campus Post is only able to forward first class USPS mail and packages. Mail that is not first class USPS or packages that arrive via Amazon, UPS, FedEx, or DHL cannot be forwarded and will remain at Campus Post until you are able to arrange pickup of your items. Unclaimed packages may have their contents donated to charity after 45 days if prior arrangements have not been made.
Intra-campus mail and packages can be dropped off at the Campus Post service desk during open hours. In addition, campus mail letters can be placed in the Campus Mail drop-box, located inside the Union Building just north of the Service Desk, by the gymnasium doors. Please do not put campus mail in the blue USPS mailbox outside ITSMedia!
Campus Post is not a full-service post office and does not sell postage or ship packages. Students are responsible for obtaining postage or shipping labels themselves. Stamps and shipping labels can also be purchased at the City of Goshen Post Office or ordered online from usps.com. USPS mail can be dropped off at the blue mailbox on the south end of the Union just beside the exterior entrance to the Service Desk. UPS packages with pre-paid shipping labels can be dropped off for pickup at Printing & Mailing in the basement of Coffman Hall. At this time, there is NOT a campus pickup location for FedEx packages; students can drop off labeled FedEx packages at the Walgreens on Lincolnway Ave. in Goshen.
