Mailboxes and Buckley Amendment

Student mailboxes (individual folders contained in a large filing cabinet) are located outside of the Mechanical Engineering Smith Computer Cluster (Kings W114). Each student is assigned a separate folder. It is recommended that students check their folder on a regular basis for notices, announcements, and returned assignments. Students who wish to receive their homework assignments, quizzes, exams, and reports via their student folder must complete a Buckley Amendment form which is available from the ME Office. This form is usually distributed during Wildcat Days at the beginning of the fall semester to all new incoming students. All new transfer students receive the form in their folder.

All UNH students are also assigned a University mailbox which is located on the second floor of the Memorial Union Building (MUB). For more information about these mailboxes please visit: http://www.unhmub.com/mub/granite-square-station-mailroom.
