Shipping Packages to Campus During Academic Year
Since residence hall doors are locked and not accessible to non-students, UPS, FedEx, and other private carriers will not be permitted to deliver packages to student residences. All packages shipped to students via UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc. during the academic year must be sent to the following address:
106 Gaskin Ave
Gambier, OH 43022
When the package arrives at the Bookstore the student will be sent an e-mail to their Kenyon e-mail address indicating that the package has arrived. Students must pick up their package at the Bookstore within three days. Packages that arrive during Thanksgiving break, Winter break, and Spring break will be held until students return. Students must present their student ID or other picture ID to receive their package, and packages will not be released to anyone except the student to whom the package is addressed. If the package is not picked up within the three day period the students K-card account will be placed on "hold" status until the package is picked up. While the student's K-card account is on "hold" status the student will not be able to use their K-card account to make purchases either in the Bookstore or at other vendors that accept the K-card.
Packages can always be sent via United States Postal Service to the student's PO Box number and those packages will be delivered to the Gambier post office for student pick-up (during their business hours). All first class mail and magazine subscriptions must be addressed to the postal address.
Local delivery of perishable items should continue to be delivered to the Office of Campus Safety. For example, flowers, bakery items, etc. Food items (pizza) ordered by a student are the responsibility of the student. Delivery people are not to be in the residence halls. Students will need to meet the delivery people at the door of the residence halls to receive items.
