Packages

Residence Halls 

When you get a package, you will receive an email notification at your Illinois.edu address. You can also tell us your preference for package notification, such as a text message, at MyHousing.

After receiving a notification, you can pick up the package by presenting your i-card at your hall's package station (see the location list below). Please note: An I-card is required at the time of pick-up; you cannot send a friend in your place. Using your Illini ID (the Q code) in your Illinois app can work as well. 

Please note that packages must be processed by University Housing before you can pick them up. While you may receive a delivery notice or tracking information from a third party, the package must still be processed by Housing first. We know you are eager to receive your package, and we will do our best to process packages on the same day as delivery. 

When classes are in session, packages not picked up within two weeks will be returned to sender. Packages will be held over fall, winter, and spring breaks and can be picked up when the halls reopen after the break ends.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Packages arriving from a same-day vendor or food delivery service must include your full name (first and last) and your room number; if they do not, the deliverer must contact you to come and pick up your delivery yourself. University Housing is not responsible for packages being left at package station or front desks without contact information.

University Apartments

All University Apartment locations have a mailbox system which allows residents to receive packages via a secured package mailbox. If you receive a package, a key to the secured box will be placed in your apartment mailbox. After obtaining the package from the mailbox, replace the key in the package box lock. It is important to retrieve these packages as quickly as possible so that the package box can be used by other members of the community.
