Since the closure of the previous Canada Post outlet in York Lanes, Ancillary Services has been working with Canada Post to re-establish service on the Keele Campus for the community. Work is underway to establish a new full-service postal outlet in the York University Bookstore. It is expected that the new outlet will open in January 2020.
In the meantime, the York University Bookstore has established a parcel pick-up location for community members and others within the vicinity of the Keele Campus. The parcel pick-up is in the York Lanes mall across from the York University Bookstore.
This location is limited to the following services:
- Parcel pickup for incoming parcels only that are delivered by Canada Post. Recipients will be notified by Canada Post of the location for pickup. Pickup hours are Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- The sale of stamps.
This location is unable to accept outgoing letters or parcels. To mail letters, community members can use the lettermail boxes on campus, including the box located on the north side of York Lanes mall.
To facilitate access to other postal services for community members, Ancillary Services is operating a complimentary shuttle from the Atkinson Road parking lot to the Downsview Post Office at 1027 Finch Ave. W. The shuttle runs on Wednesdays and departs at 2:30 p.m.
Letters and parcels addressed to York University residence buildings or departments are not affected and continue to be served by Mailing Services.
