Location: Penryn Campus – internal post can be left at either the Penryn Mail Room (DDM) or at the Student information desk in Peter Lanyon Building. Penryn colleagues who are sending large/ heavy/valuable packages to Exeter (not LSI/GP stores) should complete a Porter request form above so that the Exeter Mail Room team can ensure that the package reaches the correct building once it is received in the Exeter Mail Room.

Location: Exeter Mail Room (Old Library) – items other than normal sized internal post should be booked via the porter request form linked above. This should be completed no matter whether you are delivering the item to the Exeter Mail Room or you require it to be collected from your building – please give as much notice as you can.

Location: LSI/GP Stores – you are welcome to drop packages to this location for transportation to Penryn. No need to pre-book – please have packages to stores by 11:30am. Please ensure wet/dry ice parcels are appropriately/safely packaged. Penryn staff can also send packages here as an agreed drop-off point (label packages appropriately so it’s clear that they are for LSI/GP Stores) Penryn staff should have packages to the Penryn Mail Room for 9:30am. The stores team will contact Streatham colleagues to notify them that a package has arrived.
