Please use caution when sending overnight (Priority Express) delivery via USPS on Thursday because it may not arrive until the next business day after delivery (Monday).


Please DO NOT have your mail or packages sent to the college!
If you have a physical mailbox at your off campus location, you should use that exact address for all your mail and as the "ship to" for your packages.
(PLEASE be sure that address is in the ship to for all your vendors you receive packages from such as Amazon, Etsy and so on)
If your physical off campus address does not have a mailbox you will need to go down to the Chestertown Post Office and get a PO Box with them to receive your mail and packages there.

Grocery and Food Deliveries

Sending PERISHIBLES to a Student

Since the WC Central Services Department has limited days and hours, it is important that if you send PERISHABLES to a student that you know the item(s) will arrive during these hours.  The Student Mail and Package Center is not responsible for incoming packages requiring refrigeration.  Perishable food packages must be picked up by the end of the day following receipt notification or the package will be disposed of.  We "do not" have the ability to cold storage perishables on site.  Therefore it is important that the student pick the item up that day during our current hours.

As noted also, please if your student can "not" get here during our current open hours, we can make special arrangements for mail or package pickup around those hours any time between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  There are NO weekend hours at Central Services.  If a student needs a special arrangement they should call Central Services 410-810-7112.
