Fall Tidbits from the Lincoln Park Mail Center

The Mail Center, one of Housing Services’ campus partners, wishes to share some fall updates with Lincoln Park students and families:

“Through the end of September, we processed over 7,500 packages for students and checked out over 2,000 mailbox keys. Some of the items included furniture, appliances, food, flowers, musical instruments, sporting goods, clothing and any number of miscellaneous items. We’re glad to assist you. Please contact us at (773) 325-4912 if you have any questions. Good luck to your students on their final exams!” ​​
