Packages

Packages and mail received through Central Receiving are only received/delivered on weekdays! Special delivery of flowers or bakery products, etc. must be delivered to the Residence Life Office for pick up by the resident during regular business hours 8-5 Monday-Friday, as delivery personnel do not have access to the locked residence halls and Residence Life is closed on weekends and holidays.

If you have received a package, it will be indicated in one of two ways:

  1. The desk attendant at the front desk of your residence hall will contact you and let you know you have a package and can pick it up at the front desk of your hall. This is either done by a note in your mailbox, a phone call, or a board at the front desk with your name on it.

  2. If you receive a yellow slip, you will need to go to the main Grand Junction Post Office, located on the corner of 4th Street and White Avenue to pick up the package.

Walnut Ridge Residents

You will receive a key for one of the boxes on your large mailbox or a yellow slip letting you know you need to go to the main Grand Junction Post Office, located on the corner of 4th Street and White Avenue, to pick up the package.

FedEx, UPS

All packages are delivered to our central receiving office to be delivered to residence halls during week days from 1:00pm-4:00pm. Central Receiving is CLOSED on weekends, so please do not overnight or expect receipt of packages on weekends or holidays when the University is closed. Walnut Ridge residents can pick up their packages at the Monument Hall front desk. Students track when the package arrives and can come to the hall front desk during desk hours to pick up their packages.

Forwarding your mail

When you check out of your residence hall, it is your responsibility to complete all appropriate paperwork to make sure your mail is forwarded. The United States Postal Service will no longer forward mail addressed to CMU addresses. Because of this, you will need to contact each sender to change your address. CMU does not have the ability to forward individual student's mail off campus, and it will be returned to sender.

The halls are closed...where does my mail go in the summer?

Housing will return to sender “First Class Mail” or mail with a first class postage stamp. Magazines, bulk mail, presorted standard, and non-profit organization mail is not forwarded. If you are moving to summer housing, also forward your mail with the post office to speed up the forwarding process.
