Mail collection

Residents can collect parcels (online shopping, meal services, important documents such as bank cards etc.) from the Student Living office at West Residence between Monday - Friday from 3pm. Once your parcel is ready for collection, you will receive notification from Student Living. Please ensure that you bring your student card to collect your parcels.

All general mail (letters, bank statements, birthday cards etc.) is delivered to Student Living reception.

Australia Post Parcel Lockers

There are Australia Post Parcel Lockers located out the front of West Tower for residents to use. Post delivered to the lockers can be up to 3 days quicker than having mail sent to the Student Living office and can be collected 24/7.

To use the Australia Post Parcel Lockers, residents need to:

  • Register for MyPost
  • Add "Callaghan Parcel Locker" to your delivery addresses
  • Use that address as the delivery address on your parcels

Once your parcel is ready to be collected Australia Post will send you an email and SMS.
