As the school year comes to an end, a lot of students (and their parents) are starting to wonder: “What am I going to do with all my stuff?”. Many students will be forced (to the student’s delight, I’m sure) to vacate their dorms in the middle of May, and will have to find a new housing option for themselves for next year. So why should you worry about your stuff? You’re busy enough trying to figure out scholarships, student loans, and/or what your student will do with their degree.
Let me get to the point and stop wasting your time: The Campus Post Office has several different solutions for your belongings that won’t break the bank and will take the headache out of the whole moving process at Ole Miss. Whether it’s summer storage or a move across the street, we can do it all.
Our Small Moves service can take all your stuff from your apartment/dorm/house/townhouse to any other place in Oxford, MS, that you want us to take it to – all for $125/hr. If you call ahead, our moving crew can bring boxes, tape, sharpies, and any other packaging material that you need to make sure your delicate possessions can arrive in one piece.
Next, our storage facilities have a new way of storing your items. Our D containers are rated for shipping heavy machinery via freight-line services. Their triple corrugated design will ensure that your belongings are safe an secure for the entirety of summer starting at $179! If May, June, July, and August isn’t enough time for you, we can continue the storage for just $25 a month! Measuring in at 48″ by 40″ by 36″, these containers are perfect for packing up your dorm room!
The Campus Post Office is proud to continue its Flat-Rate Storage from last summer. For $400 for the summer, our moving crew will pick up, store, and redeliver your belongings at your request. It’s just that easy. There’s no limit on the amount of items, or the amount of space they take up.
And, If you or your student need boxes or bubble wrap to pack up all your stuff, all of our locations will sell box bundles and packaging materials. Our box bundles will be 5 32″ by 18″ by 18″ boxes, with a roll of tape, and a sharpie. At a meager $39.99, they can take the hassle out of packing. We also have rolls of bubble wrap and bags of packaging peanuts for the long drive home or for those delicates that need some extra care.
Finally, we can ship your items back home. If you’re just not feeling Ole Miss anymore, or you got a better scholarship somewhere else, The Campus Post Office and our Pakmail on Jackson Avenue can package all your belongings with care and ensure a safe delivery to wherever you wish. Call us anytime and we can give you a quote by the next day!

As the summer rolls along and students get ready to go from high school to college, many parents have been wondering something along the lines of “How can I order stuff for my son/daughter but not drive it all down for move in week?”. The answer is a lot simpler than one might expect.
Any student can contact the Campus Post Office at Ole Miss to schedule move in help. At the Campus Post Office at Ole Miss, we have teams of professionals ready and able to help students make moving into their dorm a hassle-free and painless process.
We also have a program at Ole Miss that allows students and parents to ship anything to the Campus Post Office in preparation for move in week. With this program, students and their parents can buy things from any online retailer, like Amazon or Wal-Mart, and have their items shipped directly to the Campus Post Office, or, parents can ship anything from a UPS, FedEx, or Post Office location. From there, the Campus Post Office will then deliver the items to the student’s dorm rooms at a time of their choosing. For a low fee of $25/box, we will store and deliver any packages received before 15 August. Further, after a student gets 20 packages on the list for moving in, any additional packages will be delivered free of charge for that move in day.
We also offer a wide variety of other moving and shipping services. Services such as “Will-Calls”, where we create a shipping label for you and will have a Certified Shipper (such as UPS or FedEx) come to your location and ship the item to the University of Mississippi or to anywhere in Oxford.
Please give us a call at 662.915.2611 for any additional questions or to sign up for these services!
