Receiving packages at MICA

Receiving packages at MICA for Students (On-campus and Off-campus), Faculty and Staff, Fall 2022

No perishable items, please.

Please do not subscribe to a fresh food service (HelloFresh). MICA does not have the ability to preserve or refrigerate your food order. Any perishable items left unclaimed may be discarded at the end of the day to prevent odor and illness in our workplaces.  Please see our page on our Food and Grocery Deliveries Policy.

A Word About Amazon

If you’re ordering from Amazon to the residence halls, please include the following in your delivery instructions:

“Please deliver to (street address), not 1401 W Mount Royal. Delivery hours: Mon-Fri, 10-5“.

Since March 2020, Amazon drivers have forwarded residence hall packages to Bunting, and only your instructions will deliver them directly to your residence hall. We wanted to make sure that you get your packages in a timely manner. 

Notifications 

When your package arrives, you will receive an email notification from Pitney Bowes. Please come to your residence hall package room, Monday-Friday, 10-5, show your ID and pick up your packages. Mail will be placed in your mailbox by 11:00 am, located in the lobby area of your residence hall (keys issued at move-in by the Office of Residence Life).

Please note: we do not wipe down or quarantine packages. Please wash your hands after touching a package.

What if I have a bunch of packages?

If you have more packages that you can carry by yourself, either bring a friend or pick up a rolling basket at the front desk area of your residence hall. In Founders', if you can't find any in Latrobe House, try Leake Hall.




Please refrain from ordering perishable food items (e.g. Hello Fresh, etc) or freight items (over 150 lbs). We cannot accommodate these items. 

If you have any questions or concerns, such as that you are looking for a package, but did not receive an email notification, please email postalandprint@mica.edu with your tracking number and we will look up your package. Please don’t come in person to ask about a package that has not arrived.

Quarantine Housing and Packages

If you are assigned to quarantine housing, you will be instructed to take all the belongings you need with you when you move into your new room. Quarantine means quarantine, or no contact from the outside for your protection and the protection of your fellow students and the staff. If a package arrives while you are in quarantine, you will receive instructions about how to move forward. Consider that you may not need everything that you order and can either email us with the name of someone you designate to pick up the package, or you can wait and we will hold your package until you are safe to return to your regular on-campus housing. Please email postalandprint@mica.edu with your tracking number to discuss specific packages.

POD Storage 

The use of a POD/delivered storage container is strongly discouraged given the limited space available for delivery in MICA's urban setting; however, if this is the only means of getting your belongings to campus, please read the following information very carefully.

Residential students must notify the Office of Residence Life and Off-Campus Housing who will assist you on a first come, first served basis with identifying a space at MICA to have your storage unit delivered. On-campus space is expected to be extremely limited, and many requests may not be able to be fulfilled. PODS that have not been granted pre-approval will not be allowed. Any PODS that are approved must be removed no later than the second day of classes.

Students living off-campus should know that all containers delivered to a street address will need to obtain a city permit. Most companies will obtain a permit for you, but it is your responsibility to inquire if they will. Please keep the window that your POD is delivered and when it is picked up as narrow as is possible. This will help us be good neighbors with our surrounding community.
