    Hi guys. My parents have sent me a package (quite huge - 20kg) and I can see (through DPD tracking system) that it has been delivered yesterday. I still haven't got it though...I assume that it might be it the post office, but question is - is there any service provided to take that package directly to my accommodation (living in Telford court)?

    As long as your parents used the right address it will be delivered to the post office on campus. You will be notified (they'll put a note through the letter box) when the post office has the package and then you need to come and collect it (you must bring your university ID!). I would say, have a look at the post office to see if they got any parcels for you tomorrow if you don't get any note through the letterbox

    Ive been sent a few packages and they have all gone to the post room no problem but I wasn't notfied and I am also living in telford court so I would just go to the post room to see if it's there. I dont think you can get packages sent straight to your door though.

    Perhaps it's because they are just really busy this year :/ You SHOULD get notified but well obviously that hasn't happened ^^

    In my experience, the university does sign for stuff but again, no clue why they didn't.. :/

    It's only 20kg, put your back into it :')

    Split the contents of the box into two lots, and get someone to help you?

    Are you waiting for a letter FROM the bank or FOR the bank (to open a bank account)?

    I had a look and it's not actually shown on the map for some reason :/ the best way to explain really is that it is right behind the accommodation office. If you ask whee it is in the accommodation office they might let you go through the office

    You get all your general mail in your mail box. Each flat has one at the entrance. All parcels get delivered to the accommodation office. Again, you should receive a note telling you when you can pick up your parcel!

    What's the deal with letters to Telford? I've been expecting one for a while now but nothing's come through the door ): Do I have to go pick it up from somewhere? I assumed that since there's a letter box on the door that post would be delivered
    XD Spamming! na just kidding maybe it's lost in the post or one of your flat mates took up all the post and its somewhere in the kitchen?

    Hi, does anyone know how flowers get delivered? Do they get stuck at the post office too? Don't want flowers to be left there for too long. Waiting for a note from the post office would take quite awhile i guess. Thanks for your help!

    if you go to the post office/accommodation office and say you got flowers delivered I'm sure they'd be willing to make an except. It usually takes longer because they need to be sorted out but obviously with flowers they can't leave them there for too long.
