Packages

Residence Halls

When you get a package, you will receive an email notification at your Illinois.edu address. You can also tell us your preference for package notification, such as a text message, at MyHousing.

After receiving a notification, you can pick up the package by presenting your i-card at your hall's package station (see the location list below). Remember: you must be present with your i-card at the time of pick-up; you cannot send a friend in your place.

Please note that packages must be processed by University Housing before you can pick them up. While you may receive a delivery notice or tracking information from a third party, the package must still be processed by Housing first. We know you are eager to receive your package, and will do our best to process packages on the same day as delivery. 

Packages not picked up within two weeks will be returned to sender.

University Apartments

All University Apartment locations have a mailbox system which allows residents to receive packages via a secured package mailbox. If you receive a package, a key to the secured box will be placed in your apartment mailbox. After obtaining the package from the mailbox, replace the key in the package box lock. It is important to retrieve these packages as quickly as possible so that the package box can be used by other members of the community.
