As we enter Level 2 reopening, we are transitioning the regular couriers from the process of dropping off parcels in Mailing Services to returning to their normal practices of attempting deliveries at their intended destination on the campuses. While we will continue to accept packages from these couriers, they have been instructed to attempt deliveries first, as was the pre-pandemic practice at the University.

Mailing Services will continue to accept individual shipments provided that the recipient has contacted the courier and issued a redirect notice to our location. We will not accept courier packages without an advance email to mailroom@yorku.ca providing carrier information, tracking information and recipient information. Packages will be held for pickup. Please track your package for delivery notification with the courier prior to coming to the mail room for pickup.
