RECEIVING MAIL

The Student Mailroom in the Todd Wehr Center (TWC) includes secure mail lockers and a mailroom window. Students can access the lockers during regular TWC hours of operation. Students will have only until the end of each semester to retrieve their letters and packages as the student mailroom has limited space.

In order to expedite the process of students receiving packages, the Package Concierge system was implemented. Whenever a student receives a package, the mailroom employees will try to place packages into the system. This is not always possible — if the package is too large, perishable, the student has not established a package concierge account, or if there is no room left in the lockers, the student will receive an email from the student mailroom. Letters and magazines also go directly to the student mailroom and will not typically be placed in the package concierge system.

When the student receives notification that the student mailroom has their package or letter, they can come to the window during operating hours, tell the employee(s) working their name and show their student ID. Please tell the person working whether the email stated that you had a package, a letter, or both. The employee will then retrieve the package or letter. If it is a package, the student will be asked to sign for it.

If you are unable to pick up your packages or mail from the student mailroom, it is possible to send a friend to pick them up for you. In order to do this, the student needs to send an email to studentmailroom@carthage.edu stating that they have an item in the mailroom and that they are authorizing their friend (including friends first and last name) to pick up the package/letter in their place. The friend will have to show their ID and let the employee know whose packages they are picking up and signing for.

If the student receives an email that their package has been placed in the Package Concierge System, that email will contain a barcode and the student’s username. When the student goes to retrieve the package from the locker system, they can either enter their username or scan the barcode (NOT their Student ID) provided by the email. The system will then prompt them to enter a pin. Around the beginning of the school year, the student will get an email from the Package Concierge system with a link, prompting them to establish a pin that they can use to retrieve their packages. Once the student has entered their pin, a locker will open, and they can take their packages out of the locker. Once the locker is completely empty, as more than one package may be inside a locker for a person, close the door and hit the “Log Out” button on the kiosk screen.

If the student does not receive an email to establish an account, they should reach out or stop by the student mailroom and we can help set one up.

We encourage students to provide a forwarding address to the student mailroom before their first extended break (i.e. winter break or summer break). If a student receives mail over a break, and it has the correct postage type on it, it can be forwarded to the student. Mail can also be held until the next semester upon request. If a student does not provide a forwarding address, the student mailroom may reach out so that the student can get their mail before they return to campus.

Providing a forwarding address to the student mailroom is especially important once students graduate, or if they become commuters. If a student fails to provide a forwarding address or does not respond to the student mailroom as to what they would like done with their mail, their package/letter may be returned to the original sender.

We also encourage students, especially upon graduation, to change their forwarding address with USPS and businesses that send mail to campus so they may get their mail in a timely manner to the correct address.

AMAZON PACKAGES

The Student Mailroom in the Todd Wehr Center has an Amazon locker for shipments from Amazon. Our Amazon Hub Locker, “Phil” is one option a student can choose to send their packages too. Amazon employees deliver directly to this locker and no packages placed inside are processed through the student or campus mailrooms.

Not all packages will be able to be sent to the locker, depending on size and availability in the locker system. However, students who utilize Phil may find that shipping speeds are sometimes quicker, though this is not always the case.

Once a package is placed into the Phil locker by Amazon, the account holder will receive a notification with the pin that they can use to retrieve their package from the yellow lockers.

To use Phil, the person ordering will need to select Phil as the shipping address. This can either be done through the “Your Addresses” tab and selecting “Add Address” > find an Amazon pickup location. This can also be done in the checkout process when adding a shipping address.

Though Phil is a convenient way to ship Amazon packages to campus, it is not the only way. Packages can be addressed like normal, and they will be processed through the student mailroom.

SENDING MAIL

Students can mail packages by visiting the Lentz Hall mailroom, located on the lower level. Letters can be put in the USPS blue mailbox that is located on campus drive in front of Tarble Hall.

STUDENT MAILING ADDRESSES

All packages and letters to students should be addressed in the following way:

Student Name
Carthage College
2001 Alford Park Drive
Residence hall and room number
Kenosha, WI 53140

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact studentmailroom@carthage.edu, or stop by the mailroom window and ask the employees. They will try their best to assist you with any questions or issues you may have.
