Mail Services

These services are not available on Staten Island; letters and packages can be sent directly to the resident apartments. Students are strongly encouraged to have their packages insured and tracked.

Each suite is issued a mailbox, which is located in the lobby of each residence hall. Mail is delivered Monday to Friday by 4:30 p.m. Packages requiring your signature and letters or packages too large to fit in your mailbox may be retrieved in the Mailroom in the ROTC Building by Gate 6:

Mailroom Hours
Monday to Thursday2:30 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Friday2:30 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Mailboxes must be checked regularly. Missing deadlines because your mailbox has not been checked or suitemates did not distribute the mail is not an appropriate excuse.

Freshmen residents may not purchase parking permits on the Queens campus. Stickers are very limited and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis per published dates based on class status and none are permitted for freshmen residents.

Security

Each residence hall is staffed by a desk guard or Resident Safety Monitor 24 hours a day (except Founder’s Village, Goethals, Staten Island and DePaul).The desk guard is stationed in the lobby of each building and monitors and maintains the integrity of the hall security. Resident students must scan their StormCard at the desk to be permitted into the building. While there are no Resident Safety Monitors on Staten Island, a staff member is on call every night and remains in the Residential Courtyard from the hours of 7:30pm-12:00am.
