Amazon Locker comes to University's Perkins Student Center
10:39 a.m., Oct. 28, 2013--The University of Delaware campus community will be able to ship Amazon.com purchases directly to a secure locker at Perkins Student Center beginning Nov. 4.
This Amazon Locker, the first of its kind on campus, is a Student Government Association initiative that was requested by the student body and achieved through collaboration with the University Student Centers. It is located on the first floor of Perkins Student Center adjacent to the New Student Orientation office in Room 112.
Partnership for change
Interested participants can visit the Amazon “find a locker” site and select the Perkins Student Center location by searching for its nickname, “Thea.”
Once the purchase has been delivered to Thea, customers will receive a secure code via email that can be used to retrieve their package within three business days of its arrival. Thea can also be used for the secure, convenient return of any unwanted packages.
For more information on Amazon Lockers, including a short video tutorial on retrieving one’s purchase, see the website.
