Mail Center

At the University of Mount Union Mail Center, we pick up incoming U.S. Postal mail and packages every morning Monday through Friday, and receive packages from UPS, Amazon, Fed Ex, Lasership, and DHL throughout the day. We sort, process, and deliver mail and packages daily, Monday through Friday. We also have a mailbox located by the campus mailboxes for outgoing mail that is emptied daily Monday through Friday. Any outgoing packages will need to be brought to the Mail Center.

Hours of Operation: Monday - Friday; 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. during the school year and 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. during the summer. We are closed on holidays when the University is closed.

Student and Family Mail Service

  • Student Mailboxes

    Student mailboxes are in the Hoover-Price Campus Center. All undergraduate students are assigned a secured mailbox free of charge that they will retain until graduation. U.S. mail is sorted and put into the student’s campus mailbox once a day Monday through Friday.

  • Addressing Mail and/or Packages for Campus Delivery

    Incoming mail addressed to the University must include the correct name and campus mailbox. U.S. mail and or packages received with an incorrect name, or a vague or incorrect address (including missing a campus mailbox number) could result in a delay of your mail or have your mail returned to the sender as “Undeliverable as Addressed”. It is very important to notify people who send you mail of your correct address.

    The proper address format is:

    Student Name, Campus Mailbox Number
    The University of Mount Union
    1972 Clark Ave.
    Alliance, OH 44601-3929

  • Package Notification and Pick-Up Procedures

    Packages are sorted and scanned as we receive them. Our state-of-the-art smart lockers will supplement package pick-up from the Mail Center and provide a convenient and contactless package delivery option to accommodate student schedules. The purple smart lockers are located at The Hoover-Price Campus Center and are accessible during Hoover-Price Campus Center hours. We will assign packages to the purple smart lockers on a first-come first-served basis. Once the lockers have filled up, any remaining packages will be assigned to the shelves at the Mail Center for pick up. You will receive an email from UMU to indicate where to pick up your package. If you are picking your package up from the Mail Center, be sure to bring your purple plus card for identification.


    Note to Students: Emails from vendors (Amazon, UPS, etc.) stating the package has been delivered, does not mean it is ready to be picked up. To make your experience as efficient as possible, please wait to receive an email confirmation from the Mail Center that indicates that your package has been processed and instructions for pick up.

  • Purple Package Lockers

    If your package has been assigned to the purple smart lockers, you will receive an email containing a QR code. Go to the kiosk, located in the Hoover-Price Campus Center, tap the “pick up package” button, and scan your QR code below the screen. The locker door will open for you to retrieve your package. Make sure to watch for multiple doors if you have multiple packages. Close the door when finished.

Staff and Faculty Mail Service

  • Mail Delivery

    All Staff and Faculty mail and packages will be delivered to their department’s mailroom or designated area.

    Each department is provided with a mail bag which is used by the mail center to transport letters, flats, and small packages from the mail center to each department and from each department back to the mail center. The mail center picks up mail and packages from the U.S. Postal Service every morning (Mon.-Fri.) then sorts it by department and delivers via the mail bag to each department on campus. While delivering the daily mail bags, we will pick up each department's outgoing mail and packages.

    Please place outgoing mail and packages into the provided mail bag and include the postage request form on all mail that requires postage.

    Packages are received from Amazon, UPS, and FedEx throughout the day and will be delivered in the afternoon of the day it arrives (Mon.-Fri.).
