Packages and pick-up

Operational Information

About Post & Print Fall semester – should plan to ship by Aug. 4, 2021.

If sending packages or mail to the college be sure to use the proper format as follows:

Student Name
[Virtual Number] Bates College
65 Campus Avenue
Lewiston, Maine 04240

Your virtual number can be found in “Mailboxes” under Student Life on Garnet Gateway.

Sending packages at the start of the semester
You, your family and friends can mail as many items as you like, but please keep in mind that you will be responsible for picking up your items (during a very busy time); if there are items you feel you will need as soon as you arrive please consider bringing them with you instead of shipping them.

IMPORTANT: When the package reaches Bates and is processed, you will receive a Bates email (emails from carriers like USPS, UPS and FEDEx are not an indication your package is ready for pick up).

Please have your Bates ID to pick up items at Post & Print.
