Purpose: The Central Receiving Department was created to provide a centralized delivery address for packages and freight inbound to Creighton University. Central Receiving personnel are here to assure goods are re-delivered in a safe and expeditious manner to the recipient's specific address. There is no charge to departments for this service.
The objectives of the Central Receiving function is to relieve the campus of as much truck traffic as possible, provide "desk-top" or "to-the-room" delivery service, and to help departments avoid the expense of maintaining separate, fully-equipped and staffed receiving facilities.
Dispatching: One of the services provided by Central Receiving to the University is called "dispatching." A department will contact Central Receiving and indicate they have items to be transported from their location to another location on campus initiates a "dispatch." The request is then scheduled as part of the normal daily routing process. Examples of dispatching would be: returns to Payless Office Supply; returns by UPS that have a call tag; boxes or reports from a department to the Computer Center. This service is NOT to be confused with University Moving Services that handles moving of equipment, furniture, and records to the University Records Center.
Please note: Central Receiving is an official Creighton resource and as such should only be used for official University business. Please have all personal packages delivered to your residence.
