The Georgia Tech Post Office is here for all of your postal needs. You can send packages, buy mail supplies, and more. Students living on campus can find their mailbox at the Post Office, as well as the package pick-up window for picking up parcels. The Georgia Tech Post Office provides mail and parcel pick-up services for students receiving packages from the United States Postal Service (USPS), United Parcel Service (UPS), Federal Express, Airborne and DHL. Outgoing shipping services are provided by the United States Postal Service (USPS) only. For customer services inquiries, please contact our team at email@example.com.
Extended Hours For Package Pick-Up
Classes are back in session, and that means even more packages coming through the Georgia Tech Post Office. To help make your back-to-school package pick-up easier and safer, the Post Office will have extended hours.
The services counter will be open on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. from Tuesday, January 19 through Wednesday, January 27.
As a reminder, students should wait until they receive an email notification from the Georgia Tech Postal Services team that their package is ready for pickup, and bring their BuzzCard or other valid photo ID with them.
Additionally, the community should follow signage and guidance in the building about health and safety. Masks are required in the Exhibition Hall except when seated and eating.
Now Open in the Exhibition Hall
The Post Office has moved to the new Exhibition Hall (located across from ISYE Main at 460 Fourth Street NW), our home for the next two years while the Student Center undergoes renovations. Please note that students’ mailing addresses have not changed in any way as a result of this move. Here’s what you need to know about the move:
STUDENT MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE NOT CHANGED |
Despite the change in pick-up location, students' address has not changed - if you are a campus resident or a student who rents a mailbox, your address is still 350 Ferst Drive. Be sure to follow the addressing instructions below in the Student Mail section.
LIMIT LARGE PACKAGES |
Please limit the number and size of packages you send through the Post Office. While in our temporary space and practicing physical distancing, both our back of house storage and front counter queuing space will be in short supply. We cannot accommodate large items like futons or bicycles in our package storage, and multiple packages mean multiple trips through our space. You can help the entire community have a smoother semester by living minimally and/or purchasing items at nearby retailers.
HIGH DENSITY MAIL |
The Student Center’s renovation provides an opportunity to be more space efficient in our mail processes. Both the Post Office’s temporary space in the Exhibition Hall and its permanent home in the renovated Student Center will have a High Density Mail system (HDM), which utilizes compressible shelves of folders in lieu of individual boxes. Students will still have mailbox numbers that correspond to an individual folder containing their mail. Students will no longer need a combination to access their letter mail, only their valid BuzzCard. The transition to High Density Mail means retiring the old mailboxes from the 1st floor of the Student Center; details on the future and possible purchase of those mailboxes will be released when available.
To further alleviate congestion, the Postal Services Team asks that students wait until they have received an email telling them a package has arrived before visiting the Post Office. This will be particularly important in minimizing crowded lines on our spaces. Students should follow all signage in the Exhibition Hall related to traffic flow and distancing measures. Students should also remember to bring their BuzzCard or any state issued ID when picking up a package.
