Students moving into a residence hall will find their boxes in your dorm's package room.  The University does not allow in-room delivery.  Just inquire with the community center after checking in and they will direct you to your boxes.

Students moving into Landmark, Zaragon, The Hub, Foundry, Six11, The Yard and ArborBlu  or any of these sororities ADPi, AGD, AEPhi, AXO, DPhiE, KKG, PiBetaPhi, SDT, Sigma Kappa, TriDelt, XO and Zeta will find belongings already in their rooms. For other buildings, check with the office to find out how they work with JPS; this can change from year to year (determined by management). 

Unfortunately, neither Varsity nor 411 Lofts allow pre-arrival deliveries.  Therefore, we have to deliver the same day you move in. We cannot guarantee or estimate a delivery time for your delivery.

All boxes must be in our possession by August 24th.
