Receiving is responsible for the secure receipt, inspection, and routing of materials ordered by the College and members of the college community. The department also is the initial receiver and sorter for most non-USPS parcels received at the College.  We retain any deemed to be college property or of sensitive value and forward the balance to the Mailroom for distribution.

Faculty and staff are prohibited from using the College's facilities and address for the mailing and receipt of personal mail and purchases. 


Every effort is made to maintain a quick and efficient flow of materials to their destination. Please allow us time to process your shipment before inquiring. The process is as follows:           

  • Shipment is received and scanned into our tracking system

  • Requester/Addressee receives a “Packaged Received by Baruch College” notification email

  • Deliveries unrelated to a quantity based purchase order will be forwarded to and delivered by the Mailroom

  • Shipments related to a quantity based purchase order:
    • Items are inspected for damage
    • Matched with packing slip and purchase order
    • Receipted in CUNYfirst
  • Requester is then emailed with the details of the shipment (a copy of the purchase order, packing slip(s)/bill of lading and CUNYfirst receipt are attached)
    • Purchase Order Number
    • Date Received
    • Tracking Number(s)
    • CUNYfirst Receipt Number
    • Will deliver to {Department Name and Mailbox/Inspector}
    • Delivery Date
  • Goods requiring additional inspection, such as computer equipment and furniture, will be forwarded to the Baruch Computing and Technology Center (BCTC) or Campus Facilities respectively

Non-Baruch purchase orders, such as those made through the CUNY Research Foundation, DASNY or other agencies, are handled in an analogous manner.
