Campus package delivery to require signature for receipt

Requiring a signature for the delivery of packages from Central Receiving will help to ensure they reach the intended recipient, says Facility Services. Effective July 16, the department will require a signature for all packages delivered to campus offices.

All purchase orders sent through the Purchasing Department must show the e-mail address of either the person ordering the items or of a person responsible for accepting package deliveries.

Receiving staff will make one attempt to deliver a package. If no one is present to receive the delivery, it will be brought back to Central Receiving, and at the next scheduled delivery time, a service charge with a minimum of a half-hour will be applied to the department.

Normal delivery times are:

  • Law, Leddy Library and Odette—7:30 to 9 a.m.
  • Lambton, Erie, Biology, Chrysler Hall, Dillon Hall, Memorial Hall, CAW Student Centre, University Computer Centre—9:15 a.m. to noon
  • Essex Hall, Assumption University, Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research, Centre for Automotive Research and Education, Centre for Engineering Innovation, 688 University Avenue—noon to 2 p.m.
  • Human Kinetics, LeBel, Centre for English Language Development, Education, Toldo, health and safety office, Sunset Avenue houses—2:15 to 4 p.m.

Please direct all inquiries to Central Receiving at 519-253-3000, ext. 2859.
