This article will give you more information on how and where to collect your post in halls of residence.

Letters and small packages collection points

Letters and small packages that have not been signed for will be kept in the mailbox with your room number on.

Bateson and Harry Law Halls, Rees Hall and Burrell House

All mail delivered in the above halls is distributed to the appropriate mail boxes located in the foyer of each building, for which you have a key on your keyring.

If you live in one of our Third party provider halls (Unite or The Student Housing Company) please refer to the relevant halls websites for information.   

 

Parcels, recorded and special delivery items

Reception staff will accept parcels and special delivery items on your behalf and email you to collect them from reception. Please bring your halls ID card as proof of identity address with you.

Rees Hall and Burrell House

Rees Hall and Burrell House staff will accept parcels and special delivery items on your behalf and email you to collect them from reception. Please bring your halls ID card as proof of identity address with you.

Money or valuable documents

 

If you are receiving money or valuable documents, including bank cards, please request that they are sent by registered or recorded mail to ensure their safe delivery.

 

Food parcels from overseas

Please note:

  •          Halls will not accept packages containing raw meat, fruit or vegetable matter.
