Missed the courier pickup?

Please bring your mail to Mail Services no later than 4:00 p.m.  We start our final phase of metering outbound mail at that time.  Internal mail will be delivered the next business day.  Packages for shipment via Federal Express or UPS must be in the post office by 4:00!

If outbound mail is received after 4:00, we reserve the right to process mailings of 500 or more pieces on the next business day.  If you require us to process the mailing the same day we receive it, any overtime required will be charged to your department.

If you have questions regarding this schedule, or if you have special mailing needs, please contact Mail Services at ext. 2107.  

Mail Early and Often.

Please get your outbound mail and Federal Express or UPS packages to us by the afternoon courier pick up.  Even if you are generating a large mailing, send all the mail you have completed via courier or bring it to us in increments.  This prevents a back-up at the end of the work day and helps us eliminate overtime.  All USPS mail leaves campus at the same time each business day.

Campus Couriers.

The campus couriers report to Central Receiving.  If you need service, please call ext. 2177.
