UK Postal Services processes all incoming mail and packages for students living in campus residence halls. Mail is delivered one time per day Monday through Friday on campus.

Residents are issued a mailbox within their residence hall. Students may pick up their mail in their residence hall at the front desk if they are receiving a package or at their assigned mailbox. Residents will be emailed by the Residence Life staff when packages are delivered to the front desk.

Package Return

If students wish to return their mail or packages, they can do so at the USPS located on campus in 21A White Hall Classroom Building (basement of White Hall).
