Printing & Mailing Services: Student Mail
We provide delivery of residence hall mail Monday through Friday unless the day is a postal holiday observed by the United States Postal Service (USPS). We deliver all classes of mail including first class, standard rate, periodicals, parcel post, and international mail. We also deliver Express, Certified, Registered, Insured, or Signature Confirmation Mail, UPS, and FedEx*.
Packages and accountable items that are too large to fit into a mailbox are tracked in mailing services and a notice is emailed instructing how to claim the package at the residence hall desk. These items are held in a secure area designated by hall staff. For security, a signature and UP student ID card are required for pick-up. If the email notice instructions say to pick up the package at mailing services, please come by anytime during business hours with a University ID to claim the package.
A collection box is provided in each residence hall for outgoing campus or USPS mail. USPS mail with a return address will be returned to the sender if the letter is missing postage. USPS mail without postage and lacking a return address will be sent to the United States Postal Service Dead Mail unit where it will be handled in accordance with USPS regulations.
For mailing services to provide the best service possible, mail must be properly addressed.
