    Notification: FedEx Ground packages will no longer be delivered to campus locations the same day they are received by PiperXpress

    • Due to personnel and route changes within the FedEx corporation, FedEx Ground now arrives at PiperXpress after our on-campus routes so all FedEx Ground packages will be delivered on the following day's routes. FedEx Home Delivery, FedEx Express, and FedEx Freight are unaffected by this change. See below for all daily delivery times.

    The PiperXpress Center in the basement of the Bush Student Center provides improved Copying and Mail Services.

    Postcard Rate Increase Effective May 31, 2015:The U.S. Post Office has increased the cost of postcard stamps from $0.34 to $0.35.

    New Policy Regarding Cart Borrowing:

    Due to federal regulations requiring that we track the location of certain US Postal Service property, the large orange "Pumpkin" carts on the mail dock will no longer be available for borrowing by staff, faculty, or students.

    Also, one form of ID (student ID, driver's license, library card, credit card, etc.) and a valid phone number must be left for collateral and contacting purposes when borrowing any of the mail center's metal carts.

    This change affects the following aspects of printing services at Hamline:

    • Fleet printing (the digital imagers across campus) - The current fleet of digital imagers will be replaced by new Canon devices, and will have several new features, including:
      • Secure Print - All printing will be sent to a single secure queue, and you will be able to release your job at any digital imager on campus. Therefore, you will be able to print from your desk, and pick it up on your way to a meeting or your class.
      • Mobile printing - You will be able to print to devices by emailing an attachment from your mobile device to the mobileprint Hamline email address
      • Scan to email - You will be able to walk up to any digital imager, present your ID card, and easily scan your document, and have it either emailed to you, or saved to your Google drive
    • Fax Services - Ability to send and receive faxes. This is the Information Presentation.
      Submit the settings for a Fax Number (Google Form)
    • PiperXpress Center (the new Copy Center and Mail Services) - You will have the ability to print directly from your computer to the PiperXpress Center, and track your PiperXpress Center job status via a web page. There will be enhanced package tracking (such as email notification).
