The Bearcats Package Center is located on the 200 level of Tangeman University Center.  The Bearcats Package Center is a centralized Package Center for all incoming packages for on-campus residential student packages, and features over 400 self-serve package lockers. 

On-campus residential students should have all packages sent to the Bearcats Package Center address, rather than to their residence halls. When the package arrives at the Package Center, students will receive an email notification. Students will then come to the Package Center, and scan the barcode in the email notification to retrieve the package(s) from the Smart Lockers.   Oversized packages and those needing refrigeration can be picked up from the Service Desk.
