Care Package Program

Parents are invited to send special care packages to their students throughout the year: a welcome package for the first week back on campus, holiday packages, fall and spring final exams packages, and more. Order forms are routinely mailed home, with the first forms arriving during summer. Or, you can order online!

The Care Package Program is only available to students living on campus. Off to Campus, Welcome, Fall Final Exams, March Madness, and Spring Final Exams packages are distributed from the UConn Alumni Center, and students will be contacted via email and text message regarding pickup dates.  Please make sure to clearly write your student’s email address and phone number on the message card(s) included with the order form. That way, we can ensure your student receives his or her package quickly. If you order your package after the deadline, it will be delivered directly to your student’s mailroom.

The Out of the Blue, Trick or Treater, and Valentine’s Surprise packages are delivered directly to your student’s on-campus mailroom. (If your student no longer lives on campus at the time of package delivery, they will be notified and asked to pick up their package at the UConn Alumni Center.)

Please call 1.877.942.7887, visit our website, or email us if you have questions or have misplaced your order form.
