Student postal services will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Post Office will continue to serve departmental needs, but departments are encouraged to put a hold on all mail. Approximately 50 departments have put a hold on their mail already. It is also recommended that you redirect UPS, Fedex and DHL shipments to locations on Forbes Avenue. Please use their website tools to help you and your department with tracking packages, and with signature waivers and redirecting shipments, if nobody is there.

  • Other services within the Cohon Center also have limited hours. The Carnegie Mellon Federal Credit Union will be open from 10 a.m. to  2 p.m. by appointment only. Members of the radio station will have access to the building for the purposes of maintaining broadcast operations at WRCT.
