Resident students should wait to receive the pickup notification email sent directly from The Cubby to get their package. Students may receive an email notification from their vendor (Amazon or other retailer) or shipper (UPS, FedEx or USPS) that their package has been delivered. It may have been delivered to our campus, but it may still be in transit across campus or being processed by Cubby staff which will take additional time, so please wait for your notification email from The Cubby to your account. Thanks for you patience and cooperation!
