Mail and Package Deliveries
Campus security is the hub for package delivery and campus visitor registration. This monitored and secure location is the central receiving office for all campus deliveries and campus mail and courier services to the Amherst campus.
Package and mail delivery should be addressed to:
100 Carlson Avenue
Newton, MA 02459
To ensure proper delivery, please include:
- Full Name of the desired recipient
- Department or Office
- Building Number and/or Name

The mailroom for incoming mail and packages is located in the Campus Security Office in Holbrook Hall (Building 14). You will be notified by campus email if you have a mail item waiting for you. Please wait for this email before coming to retrieve your mail. Package tracking does NOT tell you if your package has been processed by the campus yet. Outgoing mail can be dropped in the blue postal mailbox outside of Alumnae Hall (Building 15).
Delivery of mail Between the Newton and Amherst Campuses
A courier service to pick up and deliver mail between the Newton and Amherst campus locations occurs at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday from the Campus Security building on the Mount Ida Campus. Items being delivered to the Mount Ida Campus from Amherst (or other UMass campus locations) must be available to the Courier by the Tuesday pickup time at your campus location.
All outgoing courier mail and packages should be placed in the courier OUT box and must be labeled with an interoffice label—envelopes and labels can be found near the courier OUT box located in the Campus Security building.
