Tip: Sort junk mail

To cut down on junk mail, register with the Mailing Preference Service.

It's a simple, two-minute process which will cut down the amount of junk mail you receive, and the amount of time we spend sorting it.


Mail and parcels

Mail is delivered Monday to Friday and can be collected 24 hours a day from designated post boxes using your library card.

A post box, which can only be opened using a unique code, will be allocated to each kitchen group before you enrol.

The code will be emailed to you.

When giving out your address, please use your full postal address, as stated in your contract.

Collecting parcels and recorded mail

Items that require a signature will be held at the Accommodation Parcel Room.

We will email you to let you know your item has arrived, and you can collect it between 11am - 6.30 pm (Monday to Friday), and also 9.45am - 12.15pm on Saturdays, during term-time only.

Outside of term time parcels can be collected Monday to Friday between 11am and 4.45 pm.

When collecting more than 1 item, please ensure you have the reference number written down (as stated on your email notification) and bring it along with some formal identification such as your library card or passport.
