Central Receiving is the designated receiving point for most inbound campus freight deliveries.

Central Receiving is the primary portal for inbound campus freight deliveries.  Upon receipt, freight is inspected for visible damage prior to coordinating delivery service or will-call. It supports safety and sustainability initiatives by minimizing the number of delivery vehicles on campus.

Our services include:

  • inspecting deliveries for visible damage
  • material handling equipment to accommodate all sizes of freight
  • deep docks to avoid lift-gate charges
  • verifying freight bills for accuracy and signing as appropriate
  • delivering items to departments
  • receiving for conferences/events
  • M-F, 8:00am - 4:30pm receiving, no appointment necessary
  • 24 hour surveillance
  • controlled substances receiving
