Mail Box Location

Student mailboxes are located in the Student Center.

Package Delivery Notifications

When you receive a package delivery notification from the shipper, please be patient. Your package has arrived but it is not yet ready to be picked up. Please allow us time to process all the packages that have arrived.  We will scan your package into our system and you should receive an email from donotreply-mailroom@fhu.edu . This email lets you know that your package has arrived.  Once you have received this message, you may come retrieve your package from the Mail Center. We do appreciate your patience in this area as we sometimes handle 300+ packages a day.

Addressing Campus Mail

No mail should be addressed to dormitories or office buildings, but should be addressed to a student with a box number or to a faculty/staff or office/department. No stamp is required for campus mail.  We are not allowed to give out student box numbers to anyone. If you do not know the box number, please just put the person’s name on the envelope and we will ensure it is placed in the student’s box.
