Helpful Hints

Do not mix outgoing domestic and international mail. Mail should be sorted by classification or category, with each piece facing in the same direction and held with rubber band before pickup. For example, air mail, first class mail, and campus mail should each be put in a separate bundle.

When you have a large on campus mailing with more than one piece going to a department, please separate the departments or residence halls by using rubber bands to bundle the mail.

Pick-Up & Delivery Points

Mail patrons are required to provide designated space for the delivery and collection of mail. The location should have an outgoing and incoming container and be in close proximity to the main access door. Mail for dispatch will be picked up from the outgoing collection point only. Campus mail must be notified whenever pick-up and delivery points are changed.

If you have more than one box or tray of mail to pick up, please call for a special pick up (831-2158) before 9:00 a.m. for the morning pick up, 12:30 p.m. for the afternoon pick up, and 3:00 p.m. for the white outdoor campus mailbox pick ups. Without prior notification, they will not be picked up on the regular mail run.

Please do not overstuff the white outdoor campus mailboxes.
