Mailing to the Augustana Mailing Center

All Student packages/mail should be addressed:

Augustana College
Student name Box #
639 38 St.
Rock Island, IL 61201

Student package pick-up

All packages for students are delivered to the Mailing Center in Sorensen Hall. Students will receive an email notifying them that their package has been delivered. Students must pick up their own packages and present their student ID.

No mail or packages are delivered to the Res Halls.

If the mail/package will fit in the student mailbox, it will be in the college center for them to pick up at their convenience with their mailbox key.

All packages that do not fit in their mailbox, will be held in the Mailing Center for the student to pick up. The student will need their ID.

Bulk mailings

Mailings must be 200 pieces or more to receive the discounted bulk rate. The mail piece (postcard, self-folded mailer, envelope, or booklet) can be of any dimensions, but the body text must be generic, i.e., the same piece delivered to all addressees. The piece can be hand-signed, but may not contain personal dedications or other customizations. International addresses may not be included in bulk mailings — domestic addresses only. For more details, and to get an estimate of the cost, contact Carol Ehlert at ext. 7332.


The center ships packages from one ounce to 150 pounds via UPS and FedEx ground or express, domestic or international. Note that the center also stocks packaging materials, such as boxes, tape, labels, etc. Customers will receive a tracking number, and all packages are insured up to $100. More insurance is available for valuable packages.


For departmental shipping, customers should bring a budget account number, and the department will receive an internal invoice. For personal shipping, cash or personal check is required.
