Perishable Goods - Foods and REFRIGERATED MEDICATION

IC Mail Service does not have any refrigerated storage.

Students should pick up perishable packages as soon as possible to prevent spoilage.

Mail Service will attempt to identify items marked PERISHABLE in order to notify that the item needs refrigeration. This special handling is subject to the volume of incoming deliveries, and whether received as EXPRESS/OVERNIGHT shipments, or commingled with all other packages.

IC Mail Service has limited staffing on most Saturdays during the regular semester. Click here for information regarding weekend deliveries.


Ithaca College urges students and parents to have medication which requires refrigeration be sent to the Hammond Health Center. There it can be placed in refrigeration until the student picks it up. Please call (607) 274-3177 to make arrangements with their office to handle refrigerated medication.

Refrigerated medication should be addressed for delivery to Ithaca College as:

  • Student's Name - c/o HAMMOND HEALTH CENTER
  • 953 Danby Rd
  • Ithaca NY 14850

Medication which DOES NOT require refrigeration should be addressed directly to the student as with all other mail and packages.
