Changes are Coming to Messiah Postal Services
The campus post office is now managed by The Campus Store.
Will I still need to have a mailbox and a key?
No. Slingshot’s mail delivery service does not require keys or mailboxes. Starting June 15, you no longer need your key.
What do I do with my mailbox key?
You should return your key to the campus post office after June 15th. There are brown envelopes at the service window. Write your box number on the envelope, put your key inside the envelope, and put the envelope in the campus mail slot under the service window. Be sure your mailbox is empty before returning your key.
Am I still required to have a box number as part of my address?
No. Beginning June 15, box numbers will no longer be needed. Students can use the following address format to receive mail and packages on campus:
[First Name] [Last Name]
1 UNIVERSITY AVENUE
MECHANICSBURG PA 17055
How will packages from shippers such as Amazon, Fed Ex, or UPS be handled?
These will be distributed in the same way U.S. mail is being distributed, through the campus store. This includes larger packages as well (packages that were once too large for lockers). The use of the Amazon locker hub is strongly encouraged when ordering through Amazon.
Where do I drop off outgoing mail?
Outgoing mail must be dropped off at the campus store during normal business hours. There is also a drop box available for outgoing items outside the campus store entrance.
Where do I drop off outgoing packages?
Outgoing packages must be dropped off at the campus store during normal business hours. There is also a drop box available for outgoing items outside the campus store entrance.
How do I pick up mail or packages outside of Slingshot business hours?
All incoming mail and packages must be picked up during Slingshot business hours. If slingshot business hours do not coordinate with your schedule, you should contact the campus store. You may need to assign someone to pick up your mail and you would then contact the campus store so that employees know to expect someone else.
Will my Messiah Student ID Card be required to pick up mail?
Will the Campus store sell postage stamps?
Yes. Postage stamps can be purchased at the campus store beginning June 15th. Stamps and other postage can also be purchased at the Grantham Post Office or on-line at https://www.stamps.com/
