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*. A package or accountable too large to fit in your mailbox is tracked in mailing services and a notice is emailed to you instructing you to claim your package at your residence hall desk. These items are held in a secure area designated by hall staff. For your security, your signature and UP student ID card are required for pick-up. If the email notice instructs you to pick up your package at mailing services, please come by anytime during business hours with your ID to claim your package.
A collection box is provided in each residence hall where you may deposit outgoing campus or USPS mail. USPS mail with a return address will be returned to you 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 you with the best service possible, your mail must be properly addressed. Please ask your family and friends to use your full name (no nicknames) when addressing mail. Below is an example of how your mail should be addressed to ensure it is not held up in mailing services:

5000 N Willamette Blvd.
