CSB Student Mail Procedures

Perishable Packages

Perishable items should be sent at your own risk. When we receive a perishable item, such as include fruit arrangements or baskets, flowers, food service kits such as HelloFresh boxes, baked goods or marked perishable, the packages are received, and an email is sent letting the student know they have a perishable package ready to be picked up. The perishable item will be placed in the delivery area until the student is able to retrieve it. We do not have the capacity to preserve perishable packages that require refrigeration it is up to the student to come in a timely manner for their packages and deliveries.


Any perishable packages will be logged and marked as a perishable and kept at the Mary Info Desk. The Mary Commons Info Desk will hold all perishable packages for a 24-hour period following the initial email of delivery notification. If perishable items are not picked up within a 24-hour period, the package may be disposed of due to its perishable nature.


Students that are expecting medicine that requires refrigeration should work with CSB Health Services to have any medications delivered to the Student Health Center at CSB.  If for some reason medications which require refrigeration upon delivery must to call or email the Mary Commons Info Desk in advance to arrange for the pickup. Medicine must be picked it up the day it arrives.

Package notices & delivery

Students receive an email from maryinfo@csbsju.edu notifying them that a package has been delivered at the student mail center. Please check the email notification for the location and number of the package. There are two locations for pickup; student’s personal mail box or the Mary Commons Info desk. Packages delivered directly to a mailbox do not require a signature for pick up.  Any package that cannot fit in a mailbox and therefore must be picked up from the window will require that students have their student ID and know the package number indicated in the notification email when picking up any package/delivery. IDs must be scanned for a signature to indicate package has been picked up.

Those departing from campus should…

  • Check and empty your mailbox before departing from campus!
  • Update their address information with companies, which send them mail on a regular basis (i.e. banks, cell phone companies, magazine subscriptions, etc.). 
  • To have mail sent to an address other than their permanent home address students must fill out a Forwarding Form. This information is retained only through the end of the term. After that time the forwarding addresses are cleared from the system and any additional mail is again forwarded to permanent home address on record with the registrar’s office.
  • Please note – we are unable to guarantee forwarding mail to foreign countries (we will try if there is no other information available, but delivery is unreliable)! We encourage international students or those who are going to live overseas to provide a U.S. address for forwarding or make sure to update all interested parties of how to reach them!
