Student Mail Information

Only students that live on campus may receive mail and packages at the college.

Important: Please respect the privacy of your roommate's mail. Return improperly addressed mail promptly for forwarding by placing it in the mis-addressed mail slot at your mail room.  Notify Public Safety 607-274-3333 and Mail Services 607-274-3371 if you believe your mail has been tampered with.


You must use your mail key or combination to pick up your mail from your mail box.

How Your Mail is Handled: Student mail is received and sorted into student mail boxes daily Monday through Saturday. Mail too large to fit into the mail box will receive an email notification detailing where to pick up the item and the hours of that location. You will receive an e-mail notification from noreply@sqbxmail.com  that you have an item to pick up.   Your college ID is required when picking up these packages.

Handling Misaddressed Mail: Every effort is made to deliver improperly addressed mail. Mail with service endorsements is returned to the sender with your correct address attached. When you receive mail stamped, "Please advise your correspondents and publishers of your correct mailing address," it is in your best interests to do so. Mail received during summer break is forwarded to your permanent address. To avoid delays in receiving magazines after the semester ends, notify mailers by March 15th.

Postal Contract Station: Located in Phillips Hall. It is a full service branch of the United States Postal Service. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Postage stamps, envelopes, and post cards are sold. We accept cash, checks, credit cards and ID Express. Special services include Express, Priority, certified, insured and registered mail. Money orders may be purchased with cash only.  There is a $2.00 fee per money order.

We do not accept express deliveries on Saturdays. Items sent by  the different mail carriers for guaranteed Saturday delivery will have to be picked up at their business offices. This is Warren Road if sent by FedEx or the USPS; UPS does not have local Saturday pick up hours.
