There is general mailroom on the first floor of the John Crerar Library. Faculty and Staff mailboxes are located on both the second and third floor. Outgoing mailboxes are also located on the second and third floor. Campus mail is delivered daily, normally by 12pm. USPS mail is delivered daily, normally by 2pm. Outgoing business mail left in the bin by noon will be posted the same day.
Graduate and undergraduate student mailboxes are located in the 2nd floor lobby. Only work related mail should be delivered to the Computer Science Building. Personal mail should be delivered to your home address. For departing students, we will hold mail for students who leave in the summer until December. Students who leave mid-year will continue to have mail collected until the end of the academic year. All mail will be returned to sender after those dates, no exceptions. It is your responsibility to find another student to forward your mail to you. "5730 S. Ellis” is a bulk mail address therefore you cannot file a forwarding order with the USPS. Additionally, the department must be reimbursed for postage in a timely manner. Students who fail to reimburse the department will have mail returned to the sender.
Packages that are too large to fit in your mailbox will be left on the table in room 232. Due to limited space please check the table often if you are expecting a package. The Department accepts no liability for personal deliveries. It is expected that personal deliveries will not impede business activity in the mailroom. Please take advantage of electronic delivery notification features provided by shippers.
Outgoing shipments may be sent using any one of the department’s carriers. The department maintains accounts with the USPS, UPS, Fedex and DHL. Airbills and shipping documents are located in room 232. Use the UPS record book located near the fax machine to prepare your UPS shipment. UPS delivers daily, normally by 11am. There is a Fedex drop box located in front of the Admin Bldg (Levi Hall) on Ellis. If you require a special pickup please have the carrier pickup your package at your office.
