Notes regarding personal packages

  • Distribution Services cannot process your personal packages.  We ship using a state account, then charge back the corresponding departments at the end of each month.  Personal packages should be taken to the vendor and transactions completed on your personal time.
  • Non-university related packages and or personal mail should not be sent to CSUSM.  Please redirect personal packages and mail being received on campus to your home address.  Alternatives to using your home address include shipping to the UPS Store, FedEx Office or the US Post Office as a “HOLD” for personal pickup.  Amazon lockers are also available check online for locations nearest you.   
  • Distribution Services cannot be held responsible for replacing damaged or missing contents of personal, non-university related packages that were delivered to campus.  It is the sole responsibility of the purchaser, to contact the vendor and work toward replacement or reimbursement.
