Central Receiving

Central Receiving and Shipping's primary responsibility is the receiving and shipping of goods and materials for the University, students, faculty and staff via ground transportation.


Shipping is primarily a UPS Ground shipper. Departmental shipments must be accompanied by a Shipping Request Form.

For larger shipments, a trucking company may better suit your needs. The sender is responsible for making arrangements with the trucking company for pick up of the items and completing the bill of lading for the shipment. The method of payment for shipments is cash or check. When you need to send a package out the package must be Central Receiving by 3:30 P.M.


Central Receiving receives packages daily. Students receiving packages via UPS or another ground courier will be sent an email notification when a package arrives and is ready for pick-up.

Central Receiving will deliver Faculty and Staff packages along with items ordered from the Warehouse stock. If you have any items that must be delivered with a priority status, please notify Central Receiving as soon as possible. We will make arrangements to have your package(s) held for pick up.
