When you live on campus, you can pick up mail 24/7 at your own mailbox in your residence hall. We'll email you if you receive a package. Stop by your front desk to pick it up.
When you move out of the residence halls, we'll forward USPS mail to the permanent address you have listed in MyNIU. Packages from private delivery services like UPS, FedEx, DHL or Amazon will get returned to sender.

(Larger packages dropped in a blue collection box or in the post office lobby mail slot will be returned to sender.)
