Mail Center

The Mail Center handles all incoming, outgoing, and Interoffice mail for faculty, staff, and students. We are dedicated to serving the needs of the campus in an accurate and timely manner. The mailroom is located on the ground floor of the Campus Center in the west wing.

General Information

Incoming mail is picked up from the post office on Ardmore Avenue each weekday morning. It is delivered to offices and student mailboxes the same day by mid-afternoon. See the Mailing Address page for information on where to have your packages sent to you.

Outgoing and Interoffice mail is picked up each weekday by mid-afternoon. Inter-Office and mail to be metered ships the following business day. Pre-stamped and metered mail delivered to the Mail Center by 4:00 p.m. leaves campus the same day. Please see Mailing Procedures for more information.

Incoming and Returning Students
Space in the Mail Center is limited so we ask that you arrange for your packages to arrive no earlier than 2 weeks prior to your arrival on Campus.

Unidentifiable Mail
Your mail is very important to us and we want to make sure you receive it. We will make every effort to identify the owner of a package but if for some reason a package is not marked with a proper Mailing Address, then we may not be able to find the owner. In this case, we will hold the package for 1 month before returning to sender. If you believe that your package is in Unidentifiable Mail, come to the Mail Center and we will help reunite you with your lost package.

Shipping Alcohol
Pursuant to Pennsylvania law, shipping wine and other alcohol is strictly limited and must be shipped to a State Store from an approved distributor. Among other limitations, wine and alcohol cannot be shipped to individuals. Please refer to the PA Liquor Control Board site for more information.

As such, the Haverford College Mail Center cannot accept wine that has been shipped to students and others, regardless of the recipient's age. On the direction of the Dean of the College, the Mail Center is to avoid signing for and accepting such shipments and the packages will be declined. This will likely result in the return of the package to the sender. If the shipment is intended for a student, The Mail Center will notify the Dean's Office of the declined package so it can inform the intended recipient directly.
