For students living on campus in 2020

Prior to the start of Spring semester, students have two options for picking up mail and packages.

  1. Pick up at the Mail Center (by Public Safety) - Available weekdays, 8:00am - 12:00pm
    1. ​Students will receive an automated email notification when new items are received and available at this location
  2. Pick up from the Mobile Mailroom* trucks on campus weekdays between 1:00pm - 3:55pm
    1. All items, except those which cannot fit, will be available from the truck each weekday (no additional notifications will be sent)

What is the Mobile Mailroom?

IC Mail Service is TEMPORARILY continuing our Mobile Mailroom system for making mail and packages available for pickup closer to where students live on campus. Each weekday between 1:00pm-3:55pm, two Mail Service trucks will be parked at scheduled locations around campus where students can pickup their available items.

  • The truck will park at each location for approximately 25 minutes before moving to the next location.
  • Students will only be able to pick items up from the truck associated with their campus residence.
  • NOTE: Some items will not be on a truck either due to large size, excessive volume which cannot all fit on a truck, or other circumstances. A separate notification will be sent for items which are being held for pickup at the Mail Center (by Public Safety), open weekdays 8:00am-5:00pm. 


  • CIRCLES (Community Center parking lot) - 1:00pm and 2:30pm 
  • TERRACES (Turning circle by T7) - 1:30pm and 3:00pm
  • TOWERS (J-Lot near the TCAT bus stop) - 2:00pm and 3:30pm


  • UPPER QUADS (A-Lot between Rowland and Hilliard) - 1:00pm and 2:30pm
  • GARDENS (R-Lot closest to G29) - 1:30pm and 3:00pm
  • LOWER QUADS (D-Lot between Bogart and Landon) - 2:00pm and 3:30pm

What is the permanent plan once classes start?

Ithaca College is in the process of getting smart parcel lockers (like Amazon lockers) installed in 5 locations around campus. Beginning on or around Feb 1, students will have 24/7 self-service access to retrieve their items. Additional information will be posted as it is available.

If you wish to contact us, please email or call the Mail Center at 607-274-3371. Open weekdays 8am - 5pm.
