Faculty/Staff Mail & Packages
Incoming mail and packages for faculty and staff should be addressed accordingly:
120 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02116-4624
Mail Services delivers all incoming mail to departments, including traceable mail and small boxes that are entered into the mailroom's package tracking system. Once a box exceeds 18" length by 12" height by 13" width, it is categorized as a "package" and must be picked up by the recipient at the Mail Center.
It is important that all incoming packages include the recipient's name on the address so that Mail Services can ensure that delivery goes to the appropriate staff or faculty recipient.
Please keep in mind that, per recommendation by the USPS, the services provided by the Mail Center are not for "personal" use.
We strongly urge employees not to ship personal items to the College. Emerson employees (faculty, staff, etc.) who do ship "personal" packages to the Mail Center will receive a package notification email or phone call requiring them to pick the package up from the Mail Center. Mail Services will not deliver "personal" packages under any exception. Any "personal" packages that are not picked up after five business days will be returned to sender.
When a package is entered into the Mail Center's package tracking system, an email notification will be generated and sent to the recipient saying that the package has arrived and is available for pick-up. It is then the recipient's responsibility to go to the Mail Center, sign for the package, and retrieve it. Emails will only be sent for packages that require pick-up at the Mail Center.
All student packages are held for pickup at the 100 Boylston Mail Center.

Please do not ship packages to the Mail Center if you live off-campus. The Mail Center is for on-campus students only.
At the conclusion of the academic year, on-campus students will be required to fill out a Mail Forwarding form on-line with information regarding where their mail should be sent during summer break. If a student does not fill out a form, any mail received will be returned to sender. Foreign students should provide a U.S. address if they'd like their mail forwarded, since it cannot be forwarded outside the country.
Students moving off campus will be asked to fill out a similar Mail Forwarding form on- line and their mail will be forwarded for approximately three months to the address submitted.
Please remember that only USPS packages can be forwarded. All UPS, FED EX, DHL, etc. will be returned to sender.
