UWO Deliveries

The official (but highly misleading - see below) address for deliveries to SHARCNET at UWO (Western University) is:

The University of Western Ontario
135 Western Science Centre
1151 Richmond St. Dock #54

Western Science Centre

Small deliveries can be accepted in front of the Western Science Centre here. Staff are not on-campus every day so the delivery day must be pre-arranged to ensure somebody is available. Other locations on-campus will refuse delivery.

Large deliveries to the Western Science Centre must go to Dock 54, which is behind a parking gate beside the greenhouses on Perth Drive and carriers must pre-arrange the delivery day (because staff are not on-campus every day) and must pre-arrange a number to call before arrival (between 9am and 4pm) so that someone can meet them at the gate with a pass. Without this the delivery will fail. Other docks on campus will refuse the shipment. We cannot stress this enough: because of the parking gate you will not be able to deliver without arranging for someone to meet you.

The dock is one floor below the SHARCNET server room and an elevator is available. Carriers will need a cart or dolly to bring the delivery via the elevator into the server room. We don't have the facilities to move large objects from the dock ourselves so if the carrier is unable to deliver it to the machine room we may have to refuse the shipment.

This dock is accessible to an 18-wheeler but with difficulty, so that is not recommended.
