Collecting Packages and Mail
Residential students living on the Kennesaw Campus with properly addressed packages and first-class mail will pick up their mail at Talon Express, located on the second floor in the James V. Carmichael Student Center. Until you receive an email, your item is not ready for pickup. A valid picture ID will be required to pick up the item.
- Students have 10 days to pick up letter mail and packages.
- To ensure receipt, Talon Express will send two email notifications for packages during the 15 days. After 15 days, the item will be returned to the sender.
Recipients will either receive an email from "Packcity" firstname.lastname@example.org or directly from Talon Express:
- Packcity Locker Notification: You will receive an email with pick up codes which contain an identification and authentication code. The email will be sent from Packcity.es. If using the Outlook App, the email may appear in your "Other" folder instead of your inbox.
- Directly from Talon Express: You will receive an email directly from Talon Express. Your package will be at Talon Express for pick-up.
Emergency Package Pickup Authorization
If for any reason you are unable to pick up a package or mail, another individual may be designated to pick up the item(s) on your behalf from Talon Express. The recipient must forward the received email to email@example.com with the name of the authorized individual picking up the item. The individual picking up the item must bring a picture ID.
Unidentified Recipient ItemsItems received with an unknown recipient will not be logged in; these items will be held for seven to ten (7 – 10) working days before being returned to the sender. It is the responsibility of the recipient to check with Talon Express if expecting a package or mail and have not received an email notification. Recipients should be prepared to provide as much information as possible about the item, including the tracking number and sender name.
Non-Residential Students MailCommuter students will not receive an email notification for packages or mail. However, if a letter or package is delivered for a student who does not live in on-campus housing, the package or mail will be held for 5 days. After the 5 day period, the letter/package will be returned to the sender.
Students that have moved or graduated can get their first-class mail forwarded up to a period of three months. Parcels received will be returned back to the sender. In order to get your mail forwarded to a new address, please fill out the mail forwarding request form.
FedEx, UPS and DHL
Mail from these carriers cannot be forwarded.
- Students need to contact these carriers to have their packages shipped from Talon Express to an alternative address.
- Labels are available for purchase at Talon Express to have your package shipped to an alternative address.
- Students can email shipping labels to Talon Express, and Talon Express will ship the package to the address on the label.
After 15 days, packages will be returned to the sender unless other arrangements have been made.
Perishable ItemsFor all items received (i.e. food, flowers, etc.), the student will receive an email notification for pick up within 24 hours. After this time period, if the item has not been picked up or the department has not been notified, the item will be returned to the sender.
