Mail Service - New model for Departmental Mail deliveries

Much like the rest of our colleagues and constituents in the campus community, the Department of Mail Services has been obliged throughout the COVID-19 health crisis to make many modifications to the services we're able to provide to students, faculty, and staff. This has taken several forms over the last year as we adjusted our services to meet the needs of the then current landscape. With the rush of the Spring '21 move-in now behind us, we are able to move ahead with the latest changes to our service to departments and employees.

Beginning on Monday, March 1, 2021, the Department of Mail Services will resume mail and package deliveries to all departments. Daily service will continue to operational and/or essential-designated departments, while all other departments will receive deliveries weekly.

Departments who will receive DAILY SERVICE are:

  • Facilities
  • Dining
  • Public Safety
  • Residential Life
  • Library
  • Information Technology
  • Hammond Health Center
  • PRW (assorted departments)
  • Alumni Hall (assorted departments)

All other departments will receive deliveries on the following WEEKLY schedule. Please note that this schedule is provisional, and may be subject to change.


  • Athletics (A&E Center)
  • Fitness Center
  • Towers Departments
  • Ceracche Departments


  • Park School of Communications
  • Rothschild Departments
  • CNS Departments
  • Williams Hall Departments
  • Campus Center Departments


  • 'Central Spine' Departments (from Phillips Hall to Job Hall)
  • School of Business
  • Muller Chapel


  • Dillingham Departments
  • Smiddy Hall Departments
  • CHS Departments


  • Hill Center Departments
  • Whalen Center Departments
  • Gannet Center Departments (not library)

When items are held until their next scheduled delivery day, email notifications will still be sent to inform recipients that they have new packages available at the Mail Center. Employees may pick these items up from the Mail Center prior to their scheduled delivery day.

When items are delivered to departments, an automated delivery notification will be sent to the recipients email address.

If departments with weekly service need to send out mail or packages before their scheduled delivery day, they may still drop off directly at the Mail Center.

In addition, Mail Service is exploring installing drop boxes in select locations on campus where departments can drop off items to be sent out. These drop boxes would be picked up by Mail Service staff along with the essential daily departments.
