If you send a temp or work study student to make copies, they can obtain a temporary code from the Purchasing Office when their college ID card is presented.

Each machine can print on EITHER 8-1/2" x 11" OR 8-1/2" X 14" paper. All accept coins or bills and make change. There are plans to incorporate a card reader into each copier in the future.

Please add as much information to your scheduled events as possible (name of event, location, date, time, cost, moderator, etc.)

Mail Room (K024)

The mail room is located in the Kellenberg Building, K024.

The mail room falls under the jurisdiction of the Purchasing Office.

The mail room coordinator should be contacted as early as possible in the planning stage. The mail room is open during the hours of 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday except when the college is closed.

Incoming Mail

All incoming mail is thoroughly screened and sorted for suspicious content according to national guidelines and those issued by the United States Postal Service. The Mail Room is closed to all traffic while the mail is being screened and sorted. There is a slot in the door for your outgoing envelopes when the mail room is closed.

Mail Processing

Administrative Offices: Mail room personnel deliver mail daily to all administrative offices.

Faculty Offices: The Faculty Mail Room is located in the Faculty Professional Center, K322 and is available 24/7. Due to the professor's varying schedules, incoming mail is delivered daily to individual mail slots which are accessible 24/7. At times, a security code is required to gain access (please consult your chairperson/department head).

Incoming Packages

The same safety measures used for incoming mail apply to all packages delivered to the college. Each parcel is logged in by mail room personnel and requires a signature when delivered to an individual or office. If you are expecting perishable or hazardous goods, please notify mail room personnel on ext. 6318 as to how these items should be handled.

Please note, in the event you receive a package or letter which you feel is suspicious do not touch the item. Leave the are and call security on extension 11 immediately from one of the emergency phones in the hallway or other area. Security staff will respond to your call and take action.

Residents (Students living on campus) Incoming Mail and Packages

Resident mailboxes are located in the Purchasing Office, lower level of Kellenberg Hall, Room K012. If you haven't received a mailbox, please come to the Purchasing Office. Letter mail may be obtained twenty-four hours a day at this location. Packages which are too large for the mailboxes are kept in a secure location. A notice will be placed in your mailbox when you have a package and may be picked up during normal business hours in the Purchasing Office, Room K012. Your signature will be required upon receipt.

The official address for resident's mail and package is
Molloy College
P. O. Box 9000
