The front desk, located in the lobby of the residence halls and Woodland Park, is one of the frequently used resources by residents.  The desk provides general information and supplies, including games, tools, room cleaning equipment, change, and a number of other items.

The front desk also serves as the mail delivery and drop-off point. If you have a question about housing, NMU, Marquette, or need someone to talk with, stop by the front desk.

Residence Hall Mail

Each residence hall room shares a mailbox at the front desk. Mail is delivered and sorted each evening. If you have a package, you will receive a pink package slip in your mailbox. Bring the slip to the desk with your student ID to retrieve your package. The desk accepts mail from USPS, UPS, and FedEX. You can purchase stamps and send USPS mail from the desk.

Mail Information


  • Perishable Mail:  ALL packages (unless a student is expecting a prescription that they have notified our staff about) will be treated as normal non-perishable packages. The front desk will not be liable for these perishable deliveries. Front desks will also hold perishable deliveries for a short time, due to lack of proper storage. If perishable deliveries are left at the desk for a period of time that could result in their spoilage, they will be discarded.
  • Drop-Offs & Same-Day Delivery:  Front desks will not accept drop-offs from individuals or same-day delivery services. This includes but is not limited to friends, family members, guests, or outside companies that provide same-day delivery services.  Students must accept items in person that do not come from established carriers that have no documented chain of custody and may be perishable. 
  • Outgoing Mail:  Students can only send out letters via USPS from the desk.  If students need to send out packages, they can go to the USPS location in the NMU Bookstore.
