All mail is delivered to the University Mailroom in the ROTC Building by Gate 6:
Please note, most deliveries arrive after 10:00am.
Residential Mailing Addresses are listed here.
Mail services are not offered over the summer months. It is the student’s responsibility to forward all mail to a permanent address to obtain personal mail because mail will not be held. Students are encouraged to track all of their packages to ensure safe and proper delivery.
Things to Remember
If you are expecting an important delivery, e.g., passport, social security card, birth certificate, we suggest that you request the item be sent with some type of tracking. The tracking could be:
· United States Post Office (USPS) Certified
Once the sender obtains the tracking information please request they take a photo of the tracking number and send it to you. The reason for this is, if your item did not arrive, the staff of the University Mailroom would be able to track your item and will inform you of the status.
The University provides maintenance and repair services in the residence halls.Maintenance Request Forms must be completed online via the Facilities Work Order Request.
After office hours, emergency maintenance problems should be referred immediately to the resident assistant on duty. Emergency maintenance problems are only those issues that affect health and safety and must be attended to immediately (i.e., stopped-up toilet and no other toilet available, jammed locks, etc.). Furniture will not be removed from student rooms.
Residents must purchase a Resident Parking Permit from Public Safety to legally park on campus ($500). 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. Overnight guests must obtain a temporary parking pass at the Public Safety Office and the resident host will be charged $10.
Each residence hall is staffed by a desk guard or Resident Safety Monitor 24 hours a day (except Founder’s Village, Goethals, 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.
