Central Receiving is the hub for the receiving of purchases and parcels for the general university campus and handles approximately 50,000 parcels per year. Using a computerized manifest system, packages and mail pieces can be tracked as to when it arrived, where it was routed, when it was delivered, and who signed for it. CSUN Employees may receive email notiifications when trackable items are received in Central Receiving as well as In-Transit notifications when packages are on their way to campus locations.
Central Receiving is also your point of contact for outgoing shipments not sent via United States Postal Services (USPS). Via our web site you can access the carriers (FedEx & UPS) with whom we maintain contract pricing. Receiving also works closely with Asset Management and is also responsible for tagging all major and minor capital equipment and instructional equipment as they are delivered to the university.
