Letters and packages may be mailed from the Campus Post Office between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Postage stamps, envelopes, post cards, shipping supplies, etc. are available for purchase from the service windows. We are an authorized shipping and receiving point for UPS, Fed Ex and USPS packages and only receive DHL packages.

Students and employees should have their incoming mail addressed to their Post Office box number. Below are some examples of the proper addressing procedure to assure speedy delivery of your mail.

When expecting USPS, we ask that you use the following example:

General Information

Campus/Departmental mail should be addressed to the department and not building and room numbers.  When charging postage to a department please be sure to include both the department name and account numbers for all out-going mail.  Please visit or contact the Post Office for services or visit the help links on the left side for additional postal information.

Faculty/Staff: Please keep in mind that campus/departmental mail is not intended for personal use. Therefore, personal packages and other mail will not be delivered to departments and will be returned to the sender. If you would like the convenience of receiving your mail on campus, please come by our office and we will gladly assist you in setting up a Post Office Box. Our fee is $30 for six months or $60 for a year.

Thank you!
