UPDATE: Information about Campus Mail & Packages

Dear Students,

I’m writing today with important updates regarding:

  • Shipping / Mailing Items to Campus
  • Student Mailbox Assignments & StarRez
  • Accessing Items in Storage / Pick-up of Items

As noted in prior communications, we are encouraging all students to travel “light” and bring only essential items.  This will assist in innumerable ways with the planned arrival sequence.

See below for more information regarding the above topics.


Shipping / Mailing to Campus
We recommend not shipping items to be received on campus prior to August 17, 2020.  The appropriate mailing address is:

Name of Student (First, Middle Initial, Last)
Student’s Mailbox # Paresky
39 Chapin Hall Drive
Williamstown, MA 01267

Items shipped to campus cannot be retrieved until after you complete your required quarantine per the testing and arrival procedures.

Please try to keep your packages lighter than 25 pounds and reasonable size (we do not have a lot of storage space).  The mailroom reserves the right to reject packages weighing over 25 pounds as well as oversized packages.

You will receive an e-mail FROM THE MAILROOM to notify you that your package has been received and processed and is ready for you to pick up.  Please stay tuned for more information about package pick up when you arrive on campus.  We are finalizing those logistics and exploring a potential temporary location for the beginning of the academic term.

Please note, if you receive a notice from the CARRIER (UPS,FedEX,USPS) that a package has been delivered, but you have NOT received an email from the mailroom, you MUST wait until you receive the email from the mailroom, to pick up the package.

Small packages that will fit into your mailbox will not be processed in the manner explained above.  Check your mailbox first regularly.

Student Mailbox Assignments & StarRez
All student mailbox assignments are now available in the StarRez system.  To access the system, please follow the instructions below:

In your browser go to the Williams Student Housing Portal:  https://williams.starrezhousing.com/StarRezPortalX

Follow the instructions on that page for logging into the system.

After logging in, select “Mailroom” from the purple menu bar as indicated below:

Accessing Items in Storage / Pickup of Items

We are developing a process for students with items in storage to retrieve those items.  We hope to have more information about retrieval of those items prior to your arrival.  All items are currently stored in Towne Fieldhouse.

It is important to note that you will not have access to any items prior to your testing or initial quarantine.  Please plan accordingly.
