Assignment of Mailboxes
Student mailboxes are for on-campus, resident students who have requested a physical mailbox. By default, all on-campus resident students are automatically given a Mail File in the Mail Room. A Mail File works the same as a physical Mailbox with the exception that your mail is stored in a filing system and retrieved for you by a Mail Room worker.
If you have a physical mailbox, please visit the Mailbox Information site to find your box number and combination. 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 pm, Monday through Friday, and from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm 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 visiting the Mailroom Mailbox Information site. You will need your Penn State userID and password to access this site.
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.
