Package Pick-Up

Is My Package Ready For Pick-Up?

All packages that come to the Ravine Center must be processed before students can pick them up. This can take anywhere between 1-5 days depending on the volume of packages received.

Your package is only ready for pickup when you receive an email from Grand Valley Housing & Residence Life confirming that the package has been processed.

Delivery confirmations from carriers (Amazon, UPS, USPS, etc.) do not indicate that the package is ready for pickup. If you have any questions about the status of your package, please call contact mailhrl@gvsu.edu.


Sending/Forwarding Mail

Mailboxes

Every unit on campus has its own mailbox located within/near the building. Each resident will share a mailbox with their roommate(s). If you have a brass key for your unit door, that key is also your mailbox key. If your door has swipe access, you were issued a separate brass mail key. Please visit your front desk if you have lost your mailbox key and need a replacement. Keys must be returned at the end of the year to avoid charges. 

Sending Mail/Packages

All outgoing paper mail will need to be placed into the blue USPS mailboxes with postage already added. Outgoing USPS mailboxes are located outside the following buildings:

  • Laker Village North Community Center
  • Niemeyer Living & Learning Center (Main entrance)
  • Kirkhof Center (South doors near busses)
  • South Apartments E (Main entrance)

At this time, the Ravine Center is accepting pre-paid labeled packages for outgoing mail. All packages must be sealed and labeled prior to drop-off. We do not sell any packing materials (boxes, tape, packing insulation, etc.)

Forwarding Mail

Mail received at Grand Valley for students who are no longer residents will be forwarded to the student's permanent address/mail forwarding address. At the end of the academic year, residents need to confirm their forwarding address in their myHousing. To update this:

  1. Log into myBanner.
  2. Click on Students.
  3. Click on myHousing.
  4. On the top of the next page, click on Personal Information and update Addresses & Emergency Contacts.
