Campus is returning to normal operations as of August 2, 2021. Please follow the below instructions, regarding mail delivery.

Departments that currently receive mail onsite:

  • You recently received a mail form to update your mail delivery schedule. Please fill out the form and put it in your mailbag.

Departments that do not currently receive mail onsite:

  • Please email with the following information:
    1. Department name
    2. Days you would like your mail delivered
    3. Special instructions

Important: If you do not provide the above information, mail deliveries for your department will not change and will continue operating according to the below procedure.

We are staffed during our regular hours (7:00-3:30) with at least 2 people for receiving mail and making deliveries.

One of those people will do the pick up from USPS each morning at 6:15 am as usual.

For deliveries on campus – many departments have already contacted us to make arrangements, here are the choices:

  • Delivery and pick up at your office, as usual (morning only)
  • Special circumstances and requests can be emailed to, including (but not limited to):
    • day-specific delivery (only M,W, F, for instance)
    • delivery to a central spot in the building for multiple departments
  • You can tell us to hold your mail until further notice

For your and your departments’ security, please keep your pick-up arrangement consistent by having the same pick-up person/s each time. If you need to change your designee, please notify us via email.

To send out mail if you are not having regular delivery to your office, use the Mail Services drop boxes around campus.
