Regular Inbound Mail and Delivery
At this time, inbound delivery from USPS and major couriers has not changed. Mail processing and delivery may take longer than normal due to decreased staffing in the Mail Center. Deliveries to offices and departments are being determined on an individual basis to reduce person-to-person contact and unnecessary delivery attempts. Alternate delivery methods using the package locker system have been instituted for most high-volume offices. This also reduces face-to-face contact while maintaining flexibility for those offices with reduced campus presence. These lockers are sanitized multiple times a day. Delivery needs and concerns can be communicated by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Window Hours and Regular Outgoing Mail
Mail Center window hours have been only lightly modified (summer/break hours – 9 a.m.-4 p.m.) to promote an even distribution of traffic throughout the day and to promote social distancing. When arriving at the window, please maintain the required six feet between you and the nearest person. Please bring all regular outgoing mail to the Mail Center window or drop in the mailbox outside the Mail Center. Stamps may be purchased by departments to facilitate small quantities of mail being sent by those working remotely.
Office closures and remote staffing may result in delays for communications sent via campus mail. Please consider electronic means to send your campus mail either by scanning, emailing, or sending a photo.
Bulk Mail or Large Mailings
Please provide advance notification of any large mailings (pieces over 200) planned in the next month by emailing email@example.com to ensure the best service, given the current staffing limitations. If your project requires design/printing assistance, please work with your regular account executive in the Marketing & Communication Office or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are working remotely, we encourage you to reduce the number of large shipments to the Mail Center. If you must have bulky items or large orders delivered to the Mail Center in this time, please keep in communication with the Mail Center prior to your expected delivery and communicate how you would like the on-campus delivery handled, keeping in mind that space in the Mail Center is limited and not all buildings are open at this time.
Please direct other questions and concerns to Kory at email@example.com.
