Eddie's Mailroom

Eddie's Mailroom offers many options for your shipping needs, including First Class postage stamps, priority and media mail, and UPS shipping. Our staff will help you decide which option is best suited to your needs.

The University's Mailroom was dedicated to Edward Elgonitis Sr. on April 17, 2015 after his passing. The dedication was in commemoration of his infectious Colonel spirit and 33 year service to Wilkes University. The memorial and dedication can be viewed at this link.

Eddie's Mailroom is also a pre-paid drop off location for the United States Postal Service, FedEx, and UPS. Bring your package to the front window of the Mailroom, and a staff member will distribute it to the proper carrier.

Hours of Operation

  • Eddie's Mailroom is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
  • The mail room picks up mail in the morning from all buildings, sorts the mail that afternoon, and delivers it the next business day. If mail is placed in a pick-up bin after the initial morning pick-up, it will not be picked up until the next day, sorted, and delivered the following morning. Standard turnaround for campus mail delivery is 1-2 business days.
    • Approximate mail pick-up times around campus are as follows:
      • 8:30am - Passan, Marts, Max Roth
      • 8:50am - Farley, Kirby, Chase, Capin, Weckesser, Karambelas
      • 9:30am - Breiseth, Cohen, Conyngham, Stark
      • 10:00am - SBDC, 32 W South, Towers, UCOM, 229 S Main, Darte
  • The Mailroom is closed for all University holidays. It also follows the University's schedule in regards to delays/closings due to inclement weather.
    • If there is a campus closure or schedule change, it may result in an extended delivery time. For example, if there is a snow day on a Wednesday: a letter placed in a bin on Tuesday after the morning pick-up would not be picked up until Thursday, sorted Thursday afternoon, and delivered Friday. Snow days/campus closures can cause a 3-4 day delay.
