3. How can I see if my package has arrived at UTSA?

Go to the carrier’s website and put in the tracking number for a detailed delivery status report. The status report will provide a detailed summary status of where the package is located with time, date, and location.

If it was a ground delivery service, you will receive the package by the next business day. If you need to receive the package sooner, let us know by sending an email to Central Receiving Warehouse or calling 4017 to let us know and we will make every effort to accommodate you.
