This is particularly useful for students wanting to send items or large packages home at the end of term or to staff that haven’t the time to make it to the post office. 

Where does my mail go?

Anything larger than a letter will go to the Student Post Room. You will receive an email notification to your student email account with a reference number when your item is ready to collect.

Letters go to the pigeonholes in your hall’s JCR – if the contents are believed to be valuable they may be kept at your Welcome Point.

What you need to collect your item?

Please bring your student ID and the reference number from your email notification.

How to address items

It is important to use your full name, which is associated with your university email address – please avoid using nicknames.

Address your item to the hall of residence that you live in. Do not use Derby Hall or the Post Room as this will delay the notification of your item.
