University Mailing Services


next-day and second-day letters and Saturday delivery

Express Mail and Shipping

Sometimes your letter or package simply must be delivered in the next day or two. For those occasions, the University of Pittsburgh has a contract with UPS to ship next-day letters and packages, second-day letters and packages, and Saturday deliveries.

Expedited delivery is more expensive than slower alternatives, although our contract with UPS provides the University with significant savings on the cost of such services. You should use express mail only when the urgency of your shipment justifies the additional cost. You should not use express mail for local deliveries. The University uses a courier service for same-day local delivery.

UPS is our preferred partner for ground shipments.
