Shipping and Receiving FAQs

Why haven’t I gotten my package yet? I have an email from Amazon saying it was delivered.

Emails are sent to the customer from Amazon (or FedEx, UPS, etc.) when it is dropped off at a certain location, not necessarily on campus. Please wait for an email from a @WIT.edu address before going to your mailstop or inquiring at the Service Building.
