Mailing services in Buckley Center is a service for University departments and students and it is a very busy operation throughout the year. It is not a commercial mailing center or a post office, and it does not receive extra staffing for the holiday season. In order to keep University-related mail operations running smoothly during the holidays, mailing services will be open for employees’ personal mail needs from 12 noon to 1 p.m., Monday-Friday from now through Monday, December 23, according to Mary Scroggins, mailing services. The window will be open for letters, packages, and stamp purchases. All packages must be boxed, taped, and addressed, and envelopes must be addressed and sealed. The mail center is unable to provide boxes or shipping supplies.
Personal packages for faculty and staff should also not be mailed to the University. Processing personal packages places a great deal of strain on mailing services staff, to the detriment of providing service for University offices and students. If you will not be home and are worried about theft, please send items to a friend or family member that will be home to accept the package in your absence.
