Parking in CPA

There are 3 newly assigned, temporary parking spaces located in the area near the CPA Laundry Room. They are 15 minute temporary parking spots for the mailroom only. Please utilize these spaces in order to retrieve packages from the mailroom.

Picking Up Packages

Once a package is delivered to the mailroom, residents will receive a package check-in notification email from the mailroom with their package details.

All packages are first processed through Ramapo’s Central Receiving. If a package is being tracked through the mail, students may receive tracking notification from the company that a package arrived to campus. That does not mean the Residence Life mailroom received the package yet. We encourage students to wait until they receive a confirmation email from our mailroom before coming to pick up their package.

Additionally, if your name is not on the package, it will not get delivered to you. It will be sent back to the sender. Please be sure to address your packages appropriately. If a package is delivered to campus not in your name, but someone else’s name and it is for you, that person will need to email granting permission to release the package to you.
