New Name, New Space, Same Great Service!

We’re changing our name from The Cubby to The Package & Postal Center, and we’re changing scenery as we move within the Memorial Union from Room 145 to Room 151. We aren’t going far, but we’ll be able to serve you better.

Due to growing campus needs we need a larger space to efficiently fulfill all the services we provide for students, faculty, staff and guests on a daily basis, especially during the academic year.

Directions to the new Package & Postal Center:

We’ll see you at our new location at 151 Memorial Union (formerly known as the Multipurpose Room) which is on the same floor as the current location, toward the back of the building.

From the current location, walk toward the UCU lobby. Take a left toward the Wade Center/Commuter Lounge and turn left again toward the previous location of the Faculty Development Center. After a quick right, the new Package & Postal Center will be on your left at Room 151.

From the exterior, you can enter from the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr & Coretta Scott King Memorial Plaza and head toward the entrance that has the curved brick wall on the left side. Once you enter, take a left at the Memorial Union map on the wall and the Package & Postal Center will be down the hall to your left at Room 151. We have included a map of the level 1 of the Memorial Union to help find the new location of the Package & Postal Center.

We look forward to seeing you there. Enjoy the summer!
