Spurred by the success of the self-service "mail&go" postal kiosks in the Student Center, Foy Hall, and the College of Veterinary Medicine, Auburn University has installed additional self-service postal kiosks in the South Donahue Residence Hall and Village Food Court.

"There is no need for our campus customers to stand in line at the local post office to purchase stamps or mail letters or packages. All of these services are provided at the kiosks," said Whit Allen, Manager, Mail Services.

Users can buy stamps or metered postage for all rate classes including Priority or Express Mail. Users can also mail international letters and domestic packages and letters, and select USPS Delivery Confirmation and Signature Confirmation options. Auburn Mail Services staff oversees the operations of the kiosks and transfers items to the Auburn Post Office at 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The kiosks will be available for use during normal business hours of operation.

"I've never used a kiosk . I do need to buy stamps, though, so this is very convenient," said Biosystems Engineering Student Lexie Rasco, a resident in the South Donahue Residence Hall.

The original three kiosks are found on the ground floor of Foy Hall next to Photographic Services, the second floor of the Student Center, and on the first floor of the Veterinary Education Center near the center stairwell.

"I'm new to Auburn and just learned about the postal kiosk located at the College of Veterinary Medicine. That's on my way home, so it's super convenient. I'll never drive across town to stand in line at the main post office again!" said Susan Miller, Coordinator, Construction Management.
