Mail Services

Moved to sanford hall

Georgia College offers mail handling services to its resident students, staff members, faculty members, and other members of the campus community. The mail room and student mailboxes are located in Sanford Hall. Mail Services currently handles inbound and outbound mail traffic through the US Postal Service, including packages, though some restrictions may apply to outbound shipments. Inbound package processing for UPS and Fed Ex are also handled by Mail Services. Mail Services has a supply of stamps and a selection of envelopes for sale as well.

Student mail should be addressed in the following format:

Student's Name
Campus Box (campus box #)
41`0 W. Greene St.
Milledgeville, GA 31061

Getting a Mailbox

To get a campus mail box, students need to have paid their initial housing deposit or have renewed their housing contract which verifies their status as a Resident. Once the housing deposit is paid, students may come by the Mail Services desk at Sanford Hall with their GCID and a picture ID (preferably their Bobcat Card which has both, but a Driver’s License will work as well) and they will be issued a mailbox and key. Mail keys need to be returned to Mail Services before checking out of the Central Residence Halls at the end of spring semester.  A $25 fee will be placed on a student’s account as a hold if a student fails to turn in their key within five (5) days of the semester ending.

You've Got a Package

With the volume of student packages that come in daily, it is essential to make sure the complete and correct address is on each package or letter. Student packages and letters are processed by box number and not by name, so be sure to have the correct campus box number printed on your mail. The correct mailing address format is:

Student's Name
Campus Box (campus box #)
410 W. Greene St.
Milledgeville, GA 31061

Receiving UPS and FedEx Deliveries

UPS and FedEx CANNOT deliver to student housing units, so all packages must come through Mail Services and must include the street address listed below:

Student's Name
410 W. Greene St.
Campus Box (campus box #)
Milledgeville, GA 31061

Mail Services does not have access to refrigerated units for perishable items.  Perishables not picked up within seven (7) days are discarded in accordance with US Postal regulations which normally means discarded and not returned to sender.
