Mailbox Key - Pickup
Mailbox keys for incoming freshmen are issued during Orientation - Transition day. A tent is set up on Commonwealth Hall lawn from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. If you miss picking up your key on that day, go to Mail Services located at the Campus Utility Building (CUB) across from the tennis courts. Mail Services' hours are Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. and Saturdays during open session 8:00 a.m.-12:00 noon.
You will receive your mailbox key and a paper with instructions on how to address you incoming mail. You are to keep this key for the entire time you are at Western New England University. Commuters are not given a mailbox unless one is requested. Should you lose your key, the lock will be changed and your student account will be charged $45.00. If your lock doesn't work, come to Mail Services and a work order will be filled out for the Locksmith to repair it at no charge.

On your last day at Western New England University, return your key to Mail Services. If you cannot get to Mail Services during hours of operation, you can mail your key back in an envelope noting "Hand Stamp" to ensure the key is not lost in the USPS equipment. Address the envelope as follows:

If you fail to return your key within two weeks after Commencement, your student account will be charged $45.00.
