    Hihi. Does anyone know if there's some sort of process for extremely large packages incoming? I'm planning on getting my drumkit sent up to the uni and I was just wondering if it would be the same deal of getting it from the post room or if it will be too big and go somewhere else or something?

    your best bet would be to go and ask if there is anything and if it has arrived they will take you to where they put it.


    and if you plan on playing drums anywhere near shugborough you can **** right off lol

    If you are not in the postman might put a note somewhere to say collect from the sorting office.

    Theyll probably send it to the accommodation office if its huge. They usually store parcels which have come after 2PM there... Not sure if they'd lift a drum kit to Aston common room :P

    So if I order something from amazon/play.com and put the uni address on, will it automatically be delivered to the accomm office or would i need to put that on the address separately?

    Just about to order a few things.

    Sorry I meant as well as name, accomm block and room number, would it go to a central mail room at uni or accomm office?

    Not had any mail so far so no idea of the process of receiving mail.
