4,760: Distribution of Incoming Mail

Revised: April 2019

The Central Services' Mail and Receiving units are responsible for incoming and outgoing university mail and packages, intercampus mail, items for mass distribution, and outgoing bulk mail. This includes USPS, FedEx, and UPS. Outgoing mail and packages may be dropped off at the Central Services Building for processing. The deadline for same-day processing is 3:00 PM.

USPS postage costs will be charged to the Workday worktag associated with the sender's Mail Stop number. If mail is to be charged to another Workday worktag, the envelope(s) or package(s) should be accompanied with a completed Postage Charge Form.

For shipment of packages, the University mandates the use of the eShipGlobal service providing pricing, tracking, and management of shipments in a web-based environment. Shippers can easily compare rates and services between multiple carriers (USPS, FedEx, UPS, and others), satisfy the university's need for oversight and control of hazardous and foreign shipments, and integrate billing with the Workday finance system.

Use of university services, facilities, and addresses for receipt of personal mail or packages is prohibited. This includes using or misusing the university's contracts and discounts with USPS, FedEx, UPS, and other suppliers, except through the Central Services' units.
