Receiving Mail

The Student Mailroom in the Todd Wehr Center includes secure mail lockers and a mailroom window.

If a student receives a small package, they will receive an email that contains a four-digit code. Students can then enter this code at a central locker computer to retrieve their package from a mail locker. Students can access the lockers during regular TWC hours of operation.

If a student receives a package that is too large for a locker or a magazine, envelope, or other mail, students will receive an email from the student mailroom telling them to visit the Student Mailroom Window in the TWC to pick up those items.

All students must fill out a forwarding address card prior to leaving Carthage for their first extended break (i.e Winter Break or Summer Break). Since these addresses are kept on file, students need only fill out the forwarding address card once during their enrollment at Carthage unless their forwarding address changes during that time. Additionally, once students graduate, or if they become commuters, it is essential that students fill out a new forwarding address card with the TWC mailroom.

Amazon Packages

The Student Mail room in the Todd Wehr Center has an Amazon locker for shipments from Amazon. When placing your order, be sure to select the Amazon locker Phil. The Amazon locker “Phil” is associated with the Carthage address. When your package arrives at Phil, Amazon will send you and email with a bar code to retrieve your package. Please address packages in the following way: 

Amazon Locker - Phil

Kenosha, WI 53140

Sending Mail

Students can mail packages by visiting the Lentz Hall mailroom, located on the lower level.

    • The Tower, Carthage’s newest residence hall, provides some of the best views on campus — if not in the Midwest! In addition to #carthageviews of the lake from seven stories up, residents enjoy suite-style living and two floors of shared campus spaces for gaming, cooking, group meetings, or quiet studying. Learn more about all housing options.

    • You’re going to need brain fuel. Grab a morning coffee and a snack and Starbucks or Einstein Bros. Bagels.

A new option, Carthage Cash, even covers some off-campus meals.

    • Come to Carthage; hear yourself think — think … think …
      Legend has it that Sesquicentennial Plaza holds a perfect echo. Just stand with both your feet on the “1847,” face Straz, and start talking. “You’re the only one who can hear you, but you’ll be crystal clear,” promises English and theatre alumna Mikaley Osley.
