Mail Services Guide


The University Mail Services department is a service organization created to serve the University community. We will make every effort (working within budget, staffing and USPS regulation constraints) to meet your mailing needs in a timely and cost effective manner.

Members of the Mail Services staff are hard-working and well-versed in most mail handling matters. Feel free to ask them any questions concerning mail that you may have. Some questions require research. We have USPS regulation manuals and liaisons in the USPS to ensure that we are able to answer your mailing questions. This Mail Guide has been prepared as a source of basic information on First Class Mail, Standard Mail (bulk), Intra-Campus Mail, addressing, and links to some helpful web sites. The secret of successful mailing is PLANNING AHEAD. Advance notice of your needs and concerns helps us best to address them. Let us know in advance if you have a large mailing coming up or if you have something out of the ordinary coming in. Advance warning allows us to prepare and schedule accordingly thus eliminating handling delays. It will also enable us to ensure that your mailing complies with USPS regulations.

We are continually seeking new ways to improve service to the campus community. You will be informed of new procedures or changes in Postal Regulations. If you have a specific question regarding mail, feel free to contact Mail Services at extension 75151.
