Common issues when shipping to college addresses
University campuses are often huge territories where one can easily get lost. Without a room number, it is hard to find the right place and the courier doesn’t have time to ask around.
It could happen that the campus is not accessible for everyone by car or truck. If special permission for the courier is needed to enter the campus, this should be discussed before.
All the couriers usually speak the local language. When your language skills are not up to speed yet, be sure that you have someone with you who can help you out.
Couriers will usually only contact local telephone numbers, so be sure to provide a local contact number in case the courier decides to call for whatever reason.
