Mail Services

Beginning August 31, mail courier service will be replaced with a network of lockers installed around campus to provide contactless delivery and align this service with social distancing recommendations. Check back soon for additional details.

Mail Services manages student mailboxes, USPS mail, and all incoming packages.  Students will receive email notifications to visit the mailroom in the Campus Center to retrieve incoming mail and packages.

We provide courier service for the delivery all packages, postal mail, and interoffice mail to campus departments. There is a service window for purchase of stamps and outgoing shipment of packages via UPS, FedEx, and USPS.

Packages may be dropped off with outgoing shipment labels already attached for courtesy pickup by UPS, FedEx, and USPS, as applicable.  WPI community members are responsible for obtaining and affixing the appropriate outgoing shipment label to each package. These carriers may not scan your package, therefore WPI cannot provide a receipt or tracking information to you. 

Hours:  Window service hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
To ensure same day shipment of outgoing packages, mail services must receive them by 2:30 p.m.
Summer hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Student first class mail will be picked up at the service window.  You will receive an email notification when mail has arrived for you.  Proceed to the service window with your WPI ID and mailbox number to retrieve it.

Student packages are picked up from either the new package lockers or at the service window. You will receive an email advising whether to pick up your package(s) from a locker, or at the window. This will be dependent upon package size, weight, content, or storage requirements.

Packages stored in lockers are accessible whenever the Campus Center is open.
