One carry-on (must not exceed 22" X 14" X 9").
One personal item, such as a backpack, duffel bag, shoulder bag, purse, etc. (must not exceed 17" X 13" X 8").
Stevens reserves the right to deny airport pickup service due to luggage over-capacity. Please use your best discretion with the number of luggage you will have as we have limited space in our pickup vehicles.
Another option is to ship some non-essential items to campus. We suggest to ship your items a few days before you board your flight. You can box up your non-essential items send your package(s) with the following address:

Upon your arrival at the Stevens campus, you can pick up your package at our receiving department during normal business hours (Monday to Friday, 9AM to 5PM). We do ask that you pick up your package no more than 2 business days after your arrival.
Advanced registration is required to reserve your Airport Pickup. Students who arrive without applying or without receiving a confirmation will be charged a $100 fee if space permits them to be accommodated.
If your travel plans change you must notify the Office of Graduate Student Affairs at least 72 hours in advance. If your flight is delayed or cancelled you must notify the Office of Graduate Student Affairs immediately. If you do not show up for your scheduled pick-up time a $100 no-show fee will be charged to your student account.
