Residents should use the above address instructions to receive packages. Residents may also use the Amazon Hub locker located at the Krach Leadership Center on campus to receive packages (Amazon@Purdue Frequently Asked Questions). Students picking up a package at a hall office or front desk must present their PUID. Standard carriers such as USPS, DHL, FedEx, and UPS deliver to the residence halls. 


Vendors that deliver food, groceries, or other items must be received by the resident living in the residence halls. Orders through franchised restaurants, apps, and companies like Instacart, Grub Hub, or Shipt must be placed so that the resident is not present is able to receive the delivery in person. If items are delivered and the resident is not physically present to receive them, the items may be removed and/or discarded for health and safety concerns. Residents assume all responsibility for receiving delivered items.


Residents may go to the Purdue Memorial Union to the UPS store for shipping, postage, printing, faxing, and notary and duplication services.
