Central Receiving/Warehouse

Physical Facilities Department operates Binghamton University's Central Receiving dock. It is located in the Warehouse building south of the Physical Facilities building on the western edge of campus.

Central Receiving/Warehouse

The warehouse consists of three main functions/areas:

1) storage for items used for the maintenance of facilities;

2) material stores which contains smaller parts and supplies for maintenance needs;

3) Central Receiving & re-delivery.

  • Anything that requires special handling, such as large pieces of scientific equipment or bulk furniture, or items that you need within 24 hours, are best directed to their final destination on campus, Please be sure to give the sender/supplier a purchase order number, contact name & phone number, building name, floor and room number and ask it to be included on their labeling. An alternate contact is also helpful.
  • If you direct an order to Central Receiving ask the sender/supplier to include the same contact information as above in number 1. If the order is large in physical size or quantity, please call Central Receiving @ X 7-4004 so we can plan for its arrival as our delivery staging space is limited.
  • Only order an amount of supplies/equipment that you have space to use or store in your area. Many vendors will do incremental deliveries if asked.
  • Small packages received at Central Receiving are typically delivered to you in less than 3 business days so it is not necessary to contact Central Receiving for a normal delivery. An email notification is sent when any package is processed through Central Receiving. If your package is overdue, please verify with the vendor that it was actually shipped and obtain a shipper's tracking number before calling Central Receiving.
  • Large packages are delivered through Expediting Services. When you receive the email notification that a package has arrived, and you know it to be a large package, contact Silvana Monaco @ 7-4008 to arrange timing of delivery. Items too large or too heavy for Expediting Services to handle may necessitate the department contracting with a moving vendor.
