Make Sure Your Package Gets There
There are many reasons that a student receives a package. Whether it is just their usual Amazon delivery, a care package for midterms or because your student is under the weather; there are a few things that will make package delivery simpler. If your student lives on campus you should be happy to learn that Upark has a central mailing system. The process is as follows: The mail goes to the leasing office in the lobby. They should then receive an email letting them know they have a package. The email will contain a verification code which they will need to retrieve the package.
The student mailroom department is open Monday through Friday from 9-6pm and Saturdays from 11-3pm. Times vary in the summertime. USPS deliveries are accepted Monday through Saturday.
Should you need to reach the mailroom to check on a package, the number and extensions are: Central Mail Room extension: 561-297-3172
Local Mail Room extensions:
IVA EXT 75741
HPT EXT 75205
PH EXT 75790
You will need the tracking number of the package(s) that you are trying to locate.
All FedEx, UPS, DHL packages are delivered straight to the residence halls. The central mail room receives and processes USPS packages and letters. We actually recommend using UPS (or FedEx) in comparison to USPS as it is just timelier, especially for in-state shipping. Typically, if you are sending packages from one Florida location to another, it arrives in one day at no additional fee.

If you are sending packages through Amazon, you might want to consider having them sent directly to the Amazon Locker that is located at University Commons, 1400 Glades Rd, at Whole Foods. Sometimes picking it up from Amazon is easier than having to navigate the package delivery to dorms or even apartments.
The hall receptionist will accept delivery on the student’s behalf and will email residents through their FAU email address when deliveries arrive. For food orders (i.e. pizza), students should provide the name of their residence hall. Food delivery drivers should be able to get to the main door of the residence hall where vendors have access to the outside phone. Students must come downstairs to pay for and pick up their order. For local food deliveries, each dorm has a specific address to provide to restaurants.
