The Mail Center is located on the main floor of the Seaman Student Center, across from the Den. The center receives and processes mail and packages from multiple carriers for faculty, staff, and students. Outgoing mail departs for the Post Office at 3:30 p.m. daily. Domestic and international shipping services are available for packages via US Postal Service and UPS. The Mail Center serves as a pick-up point for PRE-PAID FedEx packages. Please contact the Mail Center if you have a PRE-PAID label for a carrier other than FedEx or UPS.

CAMPUS MAIL can be used to send items to other students, faculty, and staff. CAMPUS MAIL SHOULD BE IN AN ENVELOPE with the name and box number/Department of the RECIPIENT AND THE SENDER. Items which cannot be delivered on campus and do not have a sender listed will be disposed of. Faculty and Staff items do NOT need to have their physical location (building and room #) in the ‘address’, just Department.

MAILING SUPPLIES are available in the Mail Center, including FREE Priority Mail shipping materials. Plain and Tyvek (no-tear) envelopes, bubble-mailers, and stamps are available for purchase. The Mail Center reuses packing materials, so availability of bubble-wrap, packing peanuts, and unusual-sized boxes is not guaranteed.

PARENTS and relatives: online orders that you place, particularly for cell phones, will often default to YOUR NAME. This can cause a significant delay in getting packages to your student. If you place an online order, please add your student’s name and/or box number to the mailing address. The most important part of getting mail to students once it reaches campus is the addressee’s name. We do not use residence hall or room numbers to deliver mail, and box numbers can be looked up. Please use the following method:

Student Name
Wartburg College Box #
100 Wartburg Blvd
Waverly IA 50677

Outgoing mail must be to the Mail Center by 3:15 p.m. in order to be processed that day. Outgoing UPS packages must be to the Mail Center by 3:45 p.m. in order to be processed that day.
