Campus Reopening: Operations and Updates

Updated. 9.9.2021

For Faculty/Staff:

Departmental Mail and Package Delivery
Contact the Distribution Center (DC) by email when you wish to resume mail and package deliveries at dchd@lmu.edu.

The DC is able to make twice-weekly visits to all mail stops based on your campus location. The DC will not only deliver, but also pick up outbound mail. Your office space must be open and consistently staffed for service to begin. Staff are always welcome to visit the DC to pick up or drop off any items between our scheduled stops. Due to limited staffing, the DC staff are unable to assist with shelving items or disposing of packaging materials. Operating hours remain as Monday through Friday, 7:30am-4:00pm, excluding holidays.  

Daily deliveries are expected to resume later this fall. Please note that offices must be regularly staffed for deliveries to be made.  

Mail Forwarding
Unfortunately, the Distribution Center is unable to forward individual faculty or staff mail. Please contact your Department Chair or Office Admin to determine how mail is retrieved.

Faculty-to-Student Item Distribution
Faculty who would like to transfer a book or course material to a student living in the neighborhood or on campus may utilize the Distribution Center as the go-between. For large volumes of materials or technical equipment of value, please contact Public Safety directly to develop an on-campus pick-up process.

All items must be dropped off in a sealed package with a label. The label must include the following details: student name, student mailbox # (available on PROWL), sender name, department, and sender email address. Once processed, the student will receive an email confirmation with instructions to schedule a pick-up time. Distribution days for off-campus students are limited to Tuesday-Thursday.  Please contact the Distribution Center with any questions.

 

For Students:

Student Mail Retrieval
Students living on campus may pick up their mail from the Distribution Center on P2 of University Hall. If a student living off-campus would like to have mail forwarded to a new address, they should contact the Distribution Center HelpDesk (DCHD@lmu.edu).

Package Pick-up
Students living in the L.A. area who would like to retrieve a package that was delivered to campus during the LMU campus closure should send a request to the Distribution Center HelpDesk (DCHD@lmu.edu). Upon verification, students will be provided with a link and access code to schedule a pick-up. 

Off-campus students expecting library materials will be sent a confirmation email that includes an access code that can be entered here for scheduling a pick-up.  Distribution days for off-campus students are limited to Tuesday-Thursday.
