Mail & Package Delivery

Mail and/or packages are delivered daily by the USPS, FedEx, UPS and DHL.  While your carrier may have sent you an e-mail stating your package has been delivered to Brown, Mail Services needs time to sort and process those packages for delivery to you.   Package processing time may vary depending on incoming volume.  However, we make every effort to have all packages processed and available for pick-up within 24 hours of receipt.  Please wait until you receive a pick-up confirmation e-mail from Mail Services before coming to J Walter Wilson for your package delivery.

*Note: Mail Services does not accept flower deliveries.

Deliveries of flowers for students who live in the residence halls only (no deliveries accepted for students living off-campus) may be received during Monday-Friday office hours at the Office of Residential Life (42 Charlesfield Street, 1st floor). Residential Life or the florist will call the recipient to notify them of the flower delivery. The recipient must come to the Office of Residential Life Monday through Friday between 8:30 am and 5:00pm to claim their delivery.
