Mail & Package Delivery
Resident mailboxes are operated according to guidelines provided by the U.S. Postal Service.
Addressed mail and small packages sent through the Postal Service are placed in resident mailboxes. Items that are too large for the mailboxes are kept in the Community Center and a package notification is placed in the resident’s mailbox or sent via email. To claim the package, residents should bring the package notification and their U-M ID to the Community Center during regular business hours.
