How does my student receive regular mail at SUNY Delhi?
All students have a mailbox on campus, whether you live on-campus, at Riviewview or you are a commuter. Each student has a four-digit box number. It is up to each student to visit the Student Mailroom during new student orientation to receive their mailbox combination and box number. It is also the student's responsibility to communicate their SUNY Delhi address with you. Mail that is larger than will fit in the student mailboxes are kept by the mailroom attendant who places a notice card in the student's mailbox. The student mailroom is open Mon - Fri from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., while college is in session. Students are encouraged to check their mailbox at least once a week as college business is also sent to all students' campus addresses.
Student addresses will look like this:
Farrell Center #XXXX
2 Main Street - Stop 1
Delhi, NY 13753
What type of phone service is available in Delhi?
Everyone seems to have a cell phone these days. But you should keep in mind that Delhi is in a rural area. So cell service is limited and sporadic. Cellular One and Verizon are currently the companies which provide the most dependable cell phone service in the Delhi area.
Students living on campus are assigned a phone number for their residence hall room. All rooms are equipped with phone jacks and voice mail capabilities. Students bring their own landline phones. Cordless phones that are 2.4Ghz (only) are not permitted. These interfere with Internet connections.
Students are strongly encouraged to bring a landline phone for their room and to set up their voice mail. Once set up, a student can check their voice mail from anywhere, on or off campus. Voice mail will be used by the college to send students in the residence halls important and urgent messages. Encourage your on-campus student to have a room phone and check their voice mail.
What if I'm having difficulty getting in touch with my student?
If the student lives on campus and you've tried other means of making contact, the best bet is to contact the Residence Director of the hall where the student is residing.
RDs will give the message personally or leave a note on the student's door asking them to phone home. They can often alleviate your worry by verifying the student's presence on campus. All RDs have voice mail so if you cannot reach them directly you can leave a message. In the event of an emergency concerning any student, contact University Police at 607-746-4700.
