General Information and Instructions

Important reminders

For the 2019-20 academic year, the Mail Center will begin accepting student packages on August 1, 2019. Please write "FYS" on the package to identify it as a first-year student package.

The packages will not be delivered to your room; you must pick up the packages from the Mail Center when you arrive on campus. 

The Mail Center does not accept packages weighing more than 70 lbs. Packages over 70 lbs. are delivered to Building J at the Mountaintop Campus. For more information on size restrictions and weight of parcels, please check your preferred carrier's website. 

If you have any questions regarding packages or mailing services, please call the Mail Center at (610)-758-4193.

Shipping and Mailing to Campus (Undergraduate Students)

Below is a sample of how to format your address on packages and mail.

Your Name

Lehigh University

Box #### (your mailbox number)

4 Farrington Square

Bethlehem, PA 18015

It is important that you DO NOT put P.O. before the box number. This will redirect all mail to the local post office, not Lehigh University.

Picking up your mail and packages once they arrive on campus

Picking up mail/packages from the Mail Center

  1. Simply visit the Mail Center and approach one of the kiosks across from the main counter. 

  2. Swipe your Lehigh ID at one of the kiosks and select whether you want to pick up your mail/package now OR pick it up later. (Please select cancel to pick up later). 

  3. If you select to pick up your mail/package now, our staff will be notified through our automated system and your mail/package will be brought to you at the counter. 

IMPORTANT: Please have your Lehigh ID ready for verification. 

What if I live in Southside Commons?

Students that live in Southside Commons also have access to a mailroom inside of building. To have packages delivered directly to Southside Commons, please use your Southside Commons address.
