Mail Services

Millikin offers mail services to our students living on campus.  Students can send and receive mail and packages using their campus address.  When a student has a package in the mail room they are automatically notified through email. All letters will be placed in their mailbox located in the mail room.  When picking up packages students must have their Millikin ID with them for package checkout. A student campus address can be obtained through MU Online or by contacting the Office of Residence Life.

Staff use of campus mail services

The campus mail center processes mail for students and business mail for Millikin departments. Employee’s personal packages should not be shipped to the university mail center for delivery and the mail center staff will not process outgoing personal packages for employees. The mail center does not sell postage. If you are an employee, you may send your personal mail through the campus mail center but it must be pre-posted and inserted into the Outgoing Mail Slot in the center or it can be charged to the employees account.
