As a courtesy to University faculty and staff, Campus Mail Service will pick-up any stamped personal mail from departments along with other mail that is picked up at a regular pick-up location. Personal Mail must be sealed and have the correct postage affixed. All stamped mail should be kept separate from all other mail. Personal mail cannot be billed to a departmental account; no exceptions.
A change of your campus location must be acted upon promptly. It is solely up to you and your department to make arrangements on receiving mail that is still addressed to your old location.
