Not driving to Spartanburg? Need to send some stuff ahead of time? Incoming students may begin shipping packages to their Campus Post Office Box, found in students’ residence hall assignment notification letter received in early August. Please arrange for anything sent to arrive after this date. Once students have checked in on their assigned move-in date, they may claim their packages from the Mail Room in the Montgomery Student Center. Packages should be sent to the mailing address of the incoming student listed in their room assignment notification.  During move-in, the Mailroom opens at 9:00 a.m. Please email our Mail Room Supervisor with any other questions.
