Student Mail

New for Fall 2021 - Eastway to become a central mail and package distribution center 

Beginning August 16, all mail and packages will be distributed centrally in Eastway instead of your local area desk. The Eastway distribution center is located on the lower level of the Eastway Center, right next to the convenience store.  

The Eastway central distribution center will open Monday, August 16th. The distribution center will be outfitted with lockers so you will be able to pick up your packages 24/7.  Oversized/overflow packages and mail can be picked up in the Eastway distribution center between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. We have also placed Amazon lockers in the Eastway distribution center for Amazon orders.
