Having flowers delivered to a dorm?

Girlfriend's birthday is coming up and it would make her day to get some flowers. Small problem, she is away at school. How can I have the flowers sent to her dorm?

I have never ordered flowers online before, and to the best of my knowledge nobody else I know has either.
What is the best way to handle this? I sent her gifts/packages before and the way it works at her school is any packages get held at a mail center, nothing is ever sent to her actual dorm(building or room). I suppose it is similar to an apartment building where you have a small box for letters and such but packages are held for you at a desk.
On sites like 1800flowers you can have Same-Day delivery by a local florist which is what I would prefer as the flowers come all nicely arranged, not just in a box. How would the delivery be handled? They definitely would not be able to access her dorm building so would the flowers just be left at the mail center desk like a package?
Surely someone else out there has done this before!
