Incoming Mail

USPS, FEDEX and UPS mail are delivered several times a day. Express Mail is handled by several different companies, so it may not be delivered on time. First delivery is at 8:00 AM, several deliveries are made through out the day until 3:00 PM. Mail Services receives mail that is addressed to all students, faculty and staff that have a 27109 ZIP code.

All departmental mail is separated and sorted into the proper boxes for delivery. Except for unusually high volume days, such as Mondays and after a University or USPS holiday, all mail received by 8:00 AM is delivered the same day.

Packages not picked up within 30 business days will be returned to sender. There will be 3 attempts to notify students of package delivery. Flowers not picked up within a week will be discarded.

Note to Students: Although you may receive a USPS confirmation that your package has been delivered, this notification only confirms delivery to a nearby post office. The package will still need to be transferred to the WFU Campus, received and processed by our Mail Services Department. To make your experience as efficient as possible, please wait to receive an email confirmation from WFU Mail Services that indicates that your package has been processed. In addition to this email, a notice will also be placed in your campus box. If the item will fit into your campus box, it will be placed there; otherwise you will need to bring the notice to the counter to retrieve your package.

Incoming mail addressed to the University must bear the correct name, department (if applicable), box number, street address, city, state, and ZIP code on each piece. The correct address format is as follows:

John Doe
Wake Forest College Dean’s Office
Box 1834
1834 Wake Forest Road
Winston-Salem, NC 27109-1834

NOTE: Your +4 on the end of your ZIP code is determined by the last 4 digits of your PO Box number

USPS mail received by Mail Services with an incorrect name (a name other than a student, faculty or staff member) or a vague or incorrect address (including missing a PO Box number) could result in a delay of your mail or have your mail considered “Undeliverable As Addressed” and returned to the sender for proper addressing. It is very important to notify people who send you mail of your correct address. If you have questions concerning you campus address, contact Mail Services for assistance.
