New Mail Delivery Schedule
The Faculty and Staff Mailroom is making changes with mail delivery effective November 1. These changes are in reflection of our increase in electronic communication and decrease in mail volume. Mail will be delivered on a two day rotating schedule. If you have something that needs to go out on a day you don't have delivery, you can:
- Put it in the blue mailbox located near the bus stop between Schumacher and the Library. We check this mailbox every day at 1 p.m. You can put in mail and packages that need to be metered, personal mail or packages or intercampus mail.
- Put it in the Netzer mailroom located in the basement of Netzer by 2:45 p.m. There are mail slots for on campus mail, outgoing mail and Netzer mail.
- Drop it off to MOC or Dragon Express by 2:30 p.m.
- Call us and we can make arrangements to come pick it up!
All packages that are received by 12:30 p.m. will be delivered the same day. This new schedule is for the morning mail run only!
The mailroom now has Best Way rate comparisons for USPS, UPS, and FedEx. All rates and service levels are shown with the date of delivery. This service will save departments time and money. It takes the guessing game out of which vendor to choose. We now have a universal form to be filled out for packages or any other item that needs to be shipped with tracking. With the information you provide, arrival date vs cost savings, the best carrier will be selected for your shipment.

What the Mailroom needs from you:
1 – Package up your shipment. The mailroom has boxes and packaging materials available for your use. You are welcome to come over to the mailroom to prepare your shipment or you may request packaging supplies to be delivered to your building. You may write/print off your own labels for your shipment and put it directly on the package but you don't have to. Remember, if you put your shipment in a box specific to a carrier, we will have to use that carrier.
2 – Fill out the PACKAGE SHIPPING DOCUMENT and attach it to your shipment. You can contact the Mailroom to have forms sent to you or you can complete a fillable form on our website and print it. Attach the form to your package. If the address is a PO Box, it will have to be shipped via USPS, so if possible, please also provide a physical address. Please double check your shipping address. There is an address correction charge from UPS for incorrect addresses.
3 – Leave the package out for the Mailroom to pick up. Please have your package to your building mailroom by 10 a.m. If you are unable to have your package ready by the time morning mail is picked up in your building, please contact the campus mailroom staff as special arrangements for pick-up may be necessary. Packages that need to be processed and sent out the same day need to be to the Campus Mailroom by 2:15pm.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1 – May we still use the old forms for the individual carriers? Yes, you may still use the forms for the individual carriers, however, we will not maintain a supply in the department mailrooms. If you would like some for your office, please contact the mailroom. Please keep in mind that the paper UPS Ground labels have a $5 charge added on to them. UPS is trying to get away from the paper labels.
2 – Where can I drop off a package with a pre-paid label on it? You have a few options. Mail is picked up from each Academic building at least once per day. If you missed this pick up, there is a blue drop box near the main bus stop by the Library that is checked by our department every day at 1:00 p.m. Dragon Express in Hunt Union can take both business and personal packages as well as the Faculty/Staff mailroom in MOC.
