Postal Services

The Willie J. King Postal Center, named for a long-time Meredith employee, is located on the first floor of Cate Center.

Sending Out Mail or Parcels

The Postal Center is not an official U.S. Post Office, but stamps and supplies are available for purchase and packages will be accepted to send out via USPS or UPS. These services are available between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, while classes are in session. Outgoing mail that requires special handling such as registered mail may be taken to any post office, including the Method Road branch of the U.S. Post Office, which is located within walking distance of the campus. Outgoing mail pickup is 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Incoming Mail or Parcels

Student mail is available for pick-up Monday through Friday, during regular business hours. Students who receive packages by U.S. Mail, United Parcel Service (UPS) or FedEx will receive an email letting them know their package and/or letter mail is ready to be picked up. Students are required to bring their CamCards in order to receive mail and packages. Only the student to whom the letter/package is addressed may pick up the item.
