All residential students are assigned an on-campus mailbox to use throughout their time at Emory & Henry College.
Student mailboxes are located at the either the Martin-Brock Student Center or the McPherson Center. Students will receive letter mail (U.S. Postal Service and E&H campus letters) in these mailboxes. All packages from commercial carries (i.e. UPS, FedEx, etc.) will be sent to and can be picked up at the McPherson Center, regardless of the student’s physical mailbox location.
The student’s mailbox number is assigned upon their first semester at the college and will remain with them until they no longer live in Campus Housing. The college offices, faculty, staff, and students can send mail to anyone on campus through the on-campus mail service without applying postage. The addressee’s name, campus mailbox number, and return address is needed for campus mail processing.
For sending, receiving, and retrieving packages at the McPherson Center, please see the information below.

Package Delivery, Processing, and Caution for Overnighting Letters or Packages
Please note that letters and packages delivered to the U.S. Postal Service address first arrive at the Emory United States Post Office, located near campus. From there, college personnel retrieve the letters and packages for processing in the McPherson Center.
When packages arrive at the Emory U.S. Post Office, the package will register as delivered in shipment tracking and will notify the student that the package has been delivered; however, this does not mean that it has arrived at the McPherson Center for processing.
Packages are only ready for retrieval by the student when they have received official notification from firstname.lastname@example.org. Overnighting a package may lead to frustration for a student who sees that a package has been delivered to the Emory U.S. Post Office but has not yet arrived at the McPherson Center.
Please also note that in such cases, the Emory U.S. Post Office, operated by employees of the U.S. Postal Service, will not sort through the numerous packages arriving at the post office in order to retrieve an individual package for an individual student.
