Why would a university (with which I have no connection) send me a parcel requiring a signature?

Canpar couldn't deliver a parcel to me so it was sent back to the shipper. It says the shipper is U of T and the notice has my surname only. I didn't go to U of T and I have no connection with U of T. Why would they send me a parcel? Universities don't send out 'junk mail' requiring signatures, do they?
Basically I'm wondering a) what the parcel could be, and b) if there is any way for me to find out from U of T what it is. There's no contact information on the notice. Canpar told me that all I can do is pick it up from the depot, but that's more than 30 minutes away and I don't want to drive there if it's not important.
I'm not expecting any deliveries of any sort, e.g., purchases or anything like that.
Any ideas? Thanks!
