In addition to the wired data connections, Wireless Internet access is available in all academic and administrative buildings, all student apartments and residence halls, in recreational facilities, and in outdoor "gathering spots".

Standard United States Postal Services are provided to all students on campus via apartment or room mail boxes. All mail boxes in the apartments and townhouse are located on the exterior of your areas laundry facility with the exception of Larkspur Court. Larkspur's mail boxes are located inside the Housing Commons Office. Residence hall mail boxes are located by the front desk of both LRH and FH. For packages or mail that is too large to fit in standard mailboxes, please refer to your area's front desk. East and West campus packages reside in Housing Commons main office. It is important that you put your address down so that it is delivered to Housing Commons. If you place the Housing Commons address down it will be sent to the campus central shipping and receiving first which will delay the process of you receiving your package. Please know that if you are not the designated resident of a room, apartment, or townhouse, you can not receive packages or mail on campus unless you are the domestic partner, child, or spouse of a family housing resident.
