Mail Delivery

U.S. Postal Services (USPS): Limestone Mail Center provides mail processing and delivery for students who live on campus. Generally, mail arrives at the Mail Center between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. each day, Outgoing mail can be left at the Campus Mail Center or in the outgoing mail drop box in the faculty/staff mail room located on the 1st floor of Dobson Center.  All outgoing mail should be properly addressed and have the proper postage on it if placed in the drop box.  USPS will not deliver mail that does not have the correct postage. U.S. Postal stamps may be purchased, and packages mailed at any time during normal business hours, on a cash-only basis, at the Campus Mail Center only.

Receiving Mail & Packages

Smart Lockers

Beginning with the Fall 2021 semester, the Limestone University Campus Mail Center will be located in the Hines & Riggins Center. The Mail Center will be implementing the use of a Smart Locker system for student packages and mail. Students will no longer have a specific mailbox number for receiving mail. All incoming packages and mail will need to be addressed in this manner:  

Student name
Limestone University
1115 College Drive
Gaffney, SC 29340

When packages and mail are received by the Mail Center, they will be scanned and placed in a Smart Locker for pickup. The student will receive a message through their Limestone email account with an access barcode that will be scanned at the kiosk, which is located within the locker bank on the first floor of the Hines & Riggins Center. Once the access barcode is scanned, the locker door that contains the packages and/or mail will open, and the student can retrieve the contents. The process will work the same as Amazon, Walmart, or other similar Smart Locker package pickup systems. The new method will give students convenient access to package and mail pickup, instead of being limited to Mail Center hours only. However, there will be a time limit placed on the locker use. If packages and/or mail are not retrieved from the locker within 72 hours of receipt, the contents will be removed, and the student will then have to retrieve the items through the window at the Mail Center during regular operating hours. Packages and mail will be held in the Mail Center for a four-week period. Items not picked within that time frame will be returned to sender.

Large packages that do not fit into one of the smart lockers will be held in the mail center and must be picked up in person during regular operating hours.
