Shipping & Receiving

Receipt and Delivery of Small Parcels

Beginning Monday, July 1, 2018, carriers like UPS and FedEx will deliver small packages directly to campus departments rather than going through Central Receiving. In order to ensure proper delivery, faculty and staff will need to utilize a standard delivery address when placing an order through Buy ND or otherwise.  Please see Ordering Procedure below for a link to the listing of standard delivery addresses by building.

Receipt and Delivery of Large Items Received from Freight Carriers

Central Receiving accepts large parcels for University delivery. We inspect the packaging, contact the department for the exact delivery information, and then deliver as directed.

For questions about large items received from freight carriers, please call 1-4188.

Ordering Procedure

To ensure that your packages are delivered accurately and timely, please be sure to utilize the established standard delivery address for your department when placing orders.  In BuyND, the delivery address in your profile will be in the following format:
