Postal Center

While communication is becoming more digitized, the campus Postal Center remains very active, handling approximately 2,500 articles of mail each day. With the exception of the manager, the Postal Center is run entirely by student staff and serves the entire campus community.

Each student, faculty, and staff member on campus is assigned a campus mailbox number for receiving mail. Students and senders should keep in mind that they more than likely share a mailbox with another student. Faculty and staff mailboxes are located in their offices around campus, and student postal center employees deliver mail around campus Monday through Friday each week.
