Parcels and packages shipped to students are received at the Hinman Mail Center for distribution. The packages are placed in secure storage and a notice with the date and time of receipt is placed in the student's post office box. The student also receives an email notification from Witstracking informing them that a package has arrived. After the email is received the package is available for pickup after one hour. Limited storage space and the possibility of loss or damage to packages stored for extended periods forces the Hinman Mail Center staff to return all packages to the sender that are not picked up within 15 days after receipt of notice. International packages and packages received before the beginning of the term will be returned 15 days after the student has acknowledged that the packages have been received and are in storage.
Students wishing to send belongings in advance of their arrival should address items to themselves,Dartmouth College c/o their Hinman address, Hanover, New Hampshire 03755 (see below for proper formatting). Shipment may be made by U.S. mail or by a shipping company such as Airborne, United Parcel Service, or Federal Express, so long as the shipment meets the companies' limits on the size and weight of packages that can be handled. Freight shipments (by truck) will not be accepted.
