Mail Center - Student Services
Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, the Mail Center receives daily morning delivery from the U.S. Post Office and afternoon delivry from United Parcel Service. Fed Ex delivers packages to the Mail Room as needed, and at no particular day or time.
Resident Student Mail
Beginning after the drop/add period, mail for resident students is delivered to the student mailboxes in Finlandia Hall around 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. To receive packages and/or special mail, the student MUST come to the Mail Center, present their student ID and notification slip (a blue slip placed in the student mailbox), and sign for their package and/or special mail.
Note: It is against the law to use an alias name when buying merchandise or contracting services. Finlandia University will accept mail and packages addressed only to a registered student's given name (or parent's name, if known). The Mail Center will refuse delivery of any mail or package addressed to a name that does not appear on the university's enrollment roster.
Finlandia University offers outgoing U.S. Postal and UPS service to students. UPS requires that packages be sent in their original box and packaging (i.e. stereos, computers, television, etc.), otherwise UPS will not be responsible for any loss or breakage. Packages are weighed and paid for in the Mail Center before being shipped. Finlandia University cannot ship anything COD and is in no way responsible for ANY lost or broken item(s).
The Mail Center does not furnish packaging (envelopes, boxes, etc), but may occasionally have these items on hand. Finlandia University is not responsible for letters or packages after they leave the mailroom.
Stamps and Postage
The Mail Center sells stamps or can run off postage on the postage machine. Postage must be paid for at the time of service.
