Post Office

Skidmore's Post Office is responsible for distributing intercampus mail and metering outgoing United States Postal Service mail. Incoming U.S. Mail is delivered to each address on campus mailboxes. 

Spring Operations Update

Mail Services remain open to support our campus.  Continue to check back daily for ongoing updates. 

  • Students who need to arrange to have their mail/packages forwarded- please refer to the Student FAQs.
  • Campus delivery to cluster boxes and departments receiving direct delivery will be made each Friday, unless departments make special arrangements by contacting Director Charlene Freiberger.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through all of the complicated logistical issues we are facing. We appreciate your support!
