Can you deliver to a dorm room at the University?Yes. However, most colleges have their own protocol for receiving packages. We do not recommend sending your gift as a surprise.
Colleges do not give the couriers/driver access to their grounds/facilities so the recipient cannot be reached directly, so the package must be received by a central location (college/dorm mail center, front desk/reception, shipping dock, etc.). Once received, the mailing center shall either deliver the package to your recipient or alert him/her of its arrival for pick-up. Additionally, many schools can only process delivery Monday-Friday and do not allow for Saturday deliveries.
You should reach out to the University/Dorms for their procedure for receiving perishable gifts, and they will let you know the details and may provide you with alternate addresses to which the delivery must be sent.
