How does my student (son or daughter) receive mail or packages that are sent to them?

Students are sent an email (to their Xavier email address) daily for any packages that arrive addressed to them. Mail (letters, small items) are placed in their mail box which corresponds with their dorm or apartment room number. (ex. Student lives in Kuhlman Hall 100, their mail box is Kuhlman Hall 100) *It is the responsibility of the student to check their mail frequently and/or for packages.
