Delivery Information

When ordering equipment or supplies from vendors it is important to give the vendor the complete mailing address along with a contact name, phone number and department name.  This allows the vendor to contact you when they are delivering a package.  If the vendor leaves the package in the lobby of one of our buildings, having contact information on the package helps us track down where the package belongs.

If a delivery requires a loading dock, there is a single bay dock located in the COMRB.

The building address for the COMRB is 909 S. Wolcott Ave., however, the unmanned COMRB Dock (single bay) is located on Taylor Street just east of Wolcott Avenue.  No loading/unloading equipment is available.  Departments should request a call from the delivery company when they are 15 mins out so you can meet them at the dock and direct them to your lab.

Before committing to the delivery using the unmanned Wood St. Dock (840 S. Wood St.), you should obtain the exact dimensions of the crates including the height (while on their forklift or however they will be transporting them), take a tape measure and make certain that the crates will fit through all doorways between the dock and your lab door.


1858 W. Taylor Street is the dock address for 909 S. Wolcott which is the building’s official address.
