Student Mail Services FAQ
Will I be notified if I receive any mail or packages?
UPS/USPS/FedEx says my package has been delivered. Can I pick it up now?
Once packages are dropped off, you may receive a notification from UPS, DHL, USPS, or FedEx that your item has been delivered. However, once they are delivered, we must process each item individually. Once you receive an email from Student Mail Services, the item will be ready to pickup.
When can I pickup my mail and packages?
1st Class Mail can be picked up at anytime. Student Mail Service PO Boxes are available for mail pickup 24/7! Package pickup is available Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. Once you receive an email from Student Mail Services, your packages and mail will be ready to pickup.
IMPORTANT: We receive hundreds (and during the beginning of the semester, it can be thousands) of items everyday and are working hard to process them as fast as we can. If you are expecting an important item, such as that particular book you need for class or medication, please order as early as possible.
I should have received a package a while ago but haven’t received an email. Where is it?
If the item has a tracking number, you may track it online at www.USPS.com , www.UPS.com , or www.FedEx.com . If the item shows that it has been delivered to Clemson SC 29634 or 29632, and you have not received any notification from us, please contact us. Please note that we are closed on Saturday’s. If an item shows that it has been delivered Saturday, you should receive a notification from Student Mail Services the following Monday.

Nope! We can accept boxes of any size.
Can I have food or perishable items shipped to me?
Yes. Please make sure the package indicates it is a perishable item so it may be stored in a cool area.
I have a package there but can’t stop by. Can a friend pick it up for me?
Sure. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org from your Clemson email account. Include the name of the person picking up your item. Once they arrive, we will just need to see their TigerOne ID.
I had a package shipped with the wrong name and/or address by mistake. What do I do?
