Assignment of Mailboxes
By default, all on-campus resident students are automatically given a Mail File in the Mail Room. A Mail File works the same way as a physical Mailbox, except that your mail is stored in a filing system and retrieved for you by a Mail Room attendant at the Mail Services window during regular service hours.
Student mailboxes are for on-campus, resident students who have requested a physical mailbox. When your status with Behrend changes to that of a commuter student or if you leave campus, then your mailbox assignment is terminated.
Please make sure you visit your mailbox/mail file frequently during the semester, as they are small and fill quickly. You may only retrieve your mail/packages until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.
All students are obligated to follow USPS regulations. It is a felony to tamper with mail that is not your own.
Request for Campus Mailbox
If, for some reason, you did not get a mailbox assignment (due to late registration, transfer student, etc.) or would like a physical mailbox instead of a mail file, please complete the Request for Campus Mailbox. This form may also be used if your assigned mailbox is not accessible (i.e., too high or too low).
Your Mail File Number
You can access your mail file number by contacting Mail Services. You will need your Penn State id+ card.
Refer to the Mailbox Combination Instructions for information on how to open your physical mailbox, if you have one. If you need further help with your combination, see the attendants at the Mail Services window during regular service hours.
