Ship-to-School Service Option

As students are unable to receive packages at the Package Center before moving in, Stanford housing has collaborated with our storage vendor, Collegeboxes, to provide Ship-to-School Service.  This service provides a cost-effective, convenient, and reliable way to transport your personal belongings and packages, having them delivered directly to your room or apartment at a specific time.  Please note that this is a separate process and service from standard package shipping and delivery (outlined above).  The university assumes no responsibility for loss of, or damage to, items included in this process.  Additionally, contracts with vendors are entered into by the student and the firm.  The university is not a party to these contracts.  See Storage Services for more information about this shipping option.

Mail Instructions for Graduate Students in EVGR

Flat Mail:

Starting August 9, EVGR flat mail will be delivered to your mailbox in your building’s mailroom. Your mailbox number corresponds to your apartment number. The mailroom and your apartment mailbox can be accessed using your Stanford ID card, just as you access your building, apartment/bedroom door, and other EVGR amenities. You can begin accessing your

Packages:

Any package that fits inside a mailroom parcel locker will be placed there for you to pick up from your mailroom. You will receive an email notification for each package letting you know you have an item to pick up from a parcel locker. The key to the corresponding parcel locker will be left in your mailbox. These packages can be picked up 24/7, at your convenience. In an effort to optimize the use of lockers and make them available for as many students as possible, packages will only be left in mailroom parcel lockers for 48 hours.  Packages left in mailroom parcel lockers longer than 48 hours will be transferred for retrieval from the mail pick-up room in EVGR B Room 141 for seven days. If the package has not been picked up

Any package that cannot fit into a mailroom parcel locker will be held for you to pick up from EVGR B Room 141. You will receive an email notification once the package is ready for pick up. These packages will be held for seven days and will be returned if they are not picked up within this timeframe.

All packages containing perishables -- food or other items likely to decay -- must be picked up from EVGR B Room 141. Notifications will be sent immediately from UG2, and the package must be picked up within 24 hours or the item will be discarded.

As a reminder, the current EVGR B 141 pick-up room hours of operation Monday - Friday between 8:00AM – 8:00PM and Saturday - Sunday between 8:00AM – 5:00PM.

Graduate Housing Package Center

Packages should be sent to your address after you have arrived and you have checked in and received your specific assignment. Otherwise, packages will be returned to sender/can get lost. If you aren’t home when the mail carrier/shipping company attempts to deliver a package too large to fit in your mailbox or slot, they may leave a slip indicating where and how to pick up the package; or they may simply leave the package in the lobby of your building, or outside of your building. We therefore do not recommend delivery of packages directly to your residence for this reason, unless you will be present to receive the package. Theft of your packages or their contents may result when packages are left behind in or around your address/building.

Conversely, residents of Graduate Housing may also utilize the optional services of the Graduate Housing Package Center (GPC), located in Escondido Village.
