By request, packages containing books and other materials needed for coursework will be sent to the students’ current address, with shipping costs covered by the University of Portland. Other items can be held in storage until the spring semester, returned to sender, or shipped to your current address using a prepaid shipping label.

For questions or additional information, please contact Mary Scroggins or Cathy Kelley at 

This pertains only to items that were received or in transit prior to the announcement of online classes. This message does not apply to packages received after August 14.


Regarding incoming packages for Faculty, Staff and Students

If you received notification from a sender and/or carrier i.e., USPS, or local post office 97203, UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc. regarding your item “being delivered” does not mean your package has gone through our internal processing.

Our internal processes can take up to two days depending on time of delivery and package volume. You will receive an email notification from Vuetura/Mailing Services indicating your package has been processed, and staged out for the next delivery time to your location. Items staged for delivery will not available for pickup.

  • Accountable items and packages (e.g., delivery confirmation, UPS) for administration,  faculty, staff and students are received Monday through Friday and are tracked through the Vuetura packaging system. When a package is received in mailing services, an email is sent to the receiver indicating the package number, sender, and service (USPS, UPS, etc.) and any notes if applicable.
  • Unclaimed packages will be returned to sender. 
  • For faculty, staff, and students who receive mail in their department, building, or dorm, packages will arrive at the regular scheduled delivery time. A signature is required at the time of pick-up. Due to the high volume of packages that are received for on-campus students and University business, personal packages for faculty, staff and off campus students are not to be sent to the University address
  • Mailing Services is unable to deliver any oversized items or items weighing over 70lbs. Please make arrangements to pickup at Mailing Services. When receiving palletized deliveries, please coordinate with the Office of the Physical Plant.
