We make every effort to provide timely delivery service on campus. However, your mail or shipments could have delivery delays if not addressed properly.

All mailings and shipments must be tendered as ready to send. The Mail Room, Shipping & Receiving staff do not prepare mail or boxes. For example, taping or addressing boxes or envelopes is your responsibility.

Mail Room
The United States Postal Service (USPS) mail is generally sorted by 9:30 A.M. into department mail boxes each week day. The Mail Room provides basic and common USPS services. USPS mail pick up is 3 P.M. daily.

Central Shipping & Receiving
FedEx Express and United Parcel Service (UPS) generally deliver to campus by 10 A.M. FedEx Ground and other couriers generally deliver by mid-afternoon.

All packages received by early afternoon are delivered to departments or residence halls that day.

Student packages are delivered to each residence hall’s mail room in those buildings. Campus apartment residents must pick up packages in the Student Center as apartments do not have a mail room in their building for delivery.

Departments sending FedEx or UPS packages must complete the shipping form which provides details for package processing. Please tape or secure the form to the package. Forms and packages must be received by 2 P.M. to ensure same-day processing. Boxes can be picked up by our staff to be processed. USPS mailings do not need a shipping form. All carriers pick up by 3:30 P.M. daily. 

Personal shipments can be tendered to Central Shipping & Receiving for courier pick up when a pre-paid label is attached.
