5 Things to Know About Campus Mail Service

Campus Mail Service handles over 1.5 million items annually, serving all UA employees and students, and playing a crucial role in fostering efficient communication and logistics within the University community. 

Receiving Mail and Packages 

All employees are automatically assigned to a mailstop — a departmental mailbox — based on the ORG that they are paid under. This is a six-digit number that starts with 870. The mailstop number should be included on all mail or package items that are sent to campus. Mail carriers visit each mailstop every week day to deliver inbound items and pick up outgoing mail and packages. 

Outgoing Letter Mail

Departments can send outgoing letter mail to Campus Mail Service through its mail carrier or CAPS boxes, or by drop off at the Campus Mail 325 Kirkbride Lane location. All outgoing University mail must be accompanied by a charge slip, either domestic or international, located on the forms page. Postage fees are charged back to the department monthly. 

Outgoing Shipments

Departments can use Campus Mail Service to ship items using Quadient’s S.M.A.R.T. shipping solution. S.M.A.R.T allows departmental users to save time and money by easily comparing shipping services and rates. Create a S.M.A.R.T. account online.

CAPS: Centralized Afternoon Pick-up Service

Campus Mail Service features eight CAPS boxes spread across campus, for outgoing mail and packages. CAPS boxes are collected daily from 2 to 3 p.m. Accepted items are intra-campus mail, U.S. mail, and pre-labeled UPS and FedEx packages.
