Campus Mail

Campus Mail is a free on-campus mail service that handles the collection and delivery of all official University correspondence. Providing one- to two-day delivery, it is a service made available to all University departments. Mailing Services collects, sorts, and delivers approximately 18,500 pieces of campus mail each day. Simply place campus mail in specially marked boxes located throughout the University campus.

Building Service Times

Building service times are published for each campus building and those that house University departments. Our drivers scan a barcode when they arrive at and depart each pick-up and delivery site so that we can monitor how closely we adhere to our schedules. Please note that schedules may fluctuate because of unexpected traffic patterns and inclement weather conditions.

Addressing Campus Mail

Addressing is the most important factor affecting the campus mail system. Improperly addressed envelopes cannot be delivered in a timely manner and require additional handling. Include the intended recipient's name, department, building abbreviation, and room number. A properly formatted address would look like the following example.

Jane Smith
Office of Budget and Controller
1817 CL

Look up the campus address of your recipient.

For larger campus mailings (200 or more pieces), address with computer labels and sort in building order. To save time and free staff resources, Mailing Services can address the pieces for you. Call 412-624-6500 for more information, or go to addressing.
