Student Information:

Addressing your mail and packages:

Your proper Muhlenberg address, whether you live on campus or in a M.I.L.E. house, is as follows:

[First Name] [Middle Initial, ] [Last Name]
Seegers Union Box #_____
Muhlenberg College
2400 Chew Street
Allentown, PA  18104-5586     
                          

This format is to be used on all mail sent to you and it is important that your box number be included.  Please include your middle initial as many students have the same first and last names.  Please do not address mail to “P. O. Box ____” as this is not a post office box.  Room numbers, residence hall names, nicknames, illegible handwriting, mail in the name of a parent, or missing box numbers, will also delay delivery of your mail or it may be returned to sender, if it cannot be identified.  Please also remind family and friends not to send cash through the mail. 

Mail Box Combination

Combination numbers are not given out over the phone. You may access your combination by logging onto Adirondack. You may also come to the Mailroom lobby and present your ID.  

Mail Boxes

Each student is assigned a mailbox number which remains the same while at Muhlenberg.  Your letter mail is delivered to your mailboxes. Students are advised to check their mailboxes regularly and to lock them properly after each use. If you are having difficulty opening your mailbox please watch the video below.  If you are still having difficulty after watching the video, please contact the mailroom supervisor to arrange for someone to meet you at your mailbox to further assist you.

Package Pick-up

Your packages are delivered to the Mailroom. Students are required to pick up their own packages and present their student Identification cards at the Mailroom lobby, located in the General Services Building behind the Haas College Center. Please don't come to retrieve your package until we have processed your package.  We will send you a notification via email when it is ready for pick up. Please see our hours of operation to claim your package.  Because of limited storage facilities, it is recommended that packages be picked up within five business days from the date received.

Sending packages

We sell a limited amount of stamps.  We do not sell envelopes. You may purchase envelopes in the bookstore. For your convenience, we keep a limited amount of recyled boxes in our lobby for students to reuse for sending out their packages.   

Perishable, refrigerated, and fragile shipments are discouraged as the mailroom does not have adequate storage facilities.  Please note that the mailroom will not be held responsible for either uncollected or perishable packages, or those that require special handling. Flower arrangments (not boxed) and food orders should go through the information desk in Seegers Union.
