Campus Mail Info:
Incoming USPS mail and packages typically can arrive on campus to be checked in anytime Monday through Friday from 10:30 am to the end of the day. There are no scheduled times for deliveries to the campus from the shippers. Due to recent events there can be delays in us receiving the mail and packages from USPS in that time frame. Your USPS mail and packages may be delayed a day or so due circumstances beyond our control!
There is ONLY ONE delivery and pick up of USPS mail per week day at Washington College. Any outgoing mail or outgoing USPS package that arrives at WC Central Services after USPS has been here, will go out the next business day! If you have something that must go out after this pickup occurs you will be responsible for its delivery directly to the Chestertown Post Office.
Department (Faculty & Staff) Delivery & Pick Up:
Due to recent changes, at this time Central Services will not be delivering departmental (faculty and staff) mail and packages. Departments will at this time be responsible for coming to Central Services as often as possible to pickup their mail and packages and drop off any outgoing mail and packages. There is now a Departmental Mail and Package Center located in the CAC lower level, next to the elevator for these services for you. Any outgoing mail received after 2:30 pm will be processed and sent out on the next business day. All outgoing departmental mail must be placed in your department's outgoing mail slot or in the outgoing mail box on the departmental table but you MUST put your department name on all outgoing mail for proper accounting. International mail must be marked and separated.
Campus mail can be mailed as single sheets or stapled packets - or confidential documents in envelopes - to campus departments, groups or individuals. See the WC Central Services Guide to Services for more information.
Central Services can help you send International Mail. We handle mail coming from and going to countries all around the globe and our friendly staff can help you find the best rate, properly address your letters and packages and fill out the proper customs forms.
