Note:  this webpage may only fully accessible when you connect from the Residence Halls.

Sending Mail & Packages

You can send mail by putting it in the US Mail box located at the road side of Payne Hall.  You can also bring mail to the Residence Life Office to mail providing it is pre-stamped.  You can mail packages with stamps (13oz limit due to US Mail Regulations) from the College by bringing them to the Residence Life Office.  You can mail packages that have printed postage labels (i.e. purchased on line, a return label, etc.) from any carrier by bringing them to the Residence Life Office.  Need help - Residence Life has a "Postal Station" to assist you with some supplies.

The Residence Life will text message you when your package is received.  To retrieve your package, you must present your student ID in the Residence Life Office.  You should request anyone sending you mail to address the envelope as follows:

Your Address

Your Name
Box _____ (please don't write "PO Box") or Hall/Room Number
Mohawk Valley Community College

Utica, NY 13501

You may bring your own refrigerator. Personal refrigerators must be "UL" approved and not exceed 3.2 cubic feet. A 1.6 is recommended. No more than two (2) refrigerators are allowed in any room.

If there is a roommate conflict, the students should first see their R.A. and they will attempt to resolve any conflicts between the students. If a room change is still requested, the professional Residence Hall staff will make all attempts to honor the request.  Please come to the Bellamy Hall for assistance.

Today's electronics are small and unfortunately easily stolen. Room Safes, similar to safes you find in hotel rooms, are highly recommended to safeguard your important documents, electronics such as your laptop or tablet and your purse or wallet. These safes can be connected with a security cable and attached to your bed frame. Most students find that they are able to purchase cost effective room safes at retail stores.  Please note that each room does have at least one piece of furniture (i.e. a dresser or closet" equipped with a hasp so that you can easily put a paddlock on it.)

In order to keep the Residence Hall lounges hygenic and pleasant, students are required to remove their personal room trash to the dumpsters in the Residence Hall Parking Lot.
