Rules for Faculty & Staff Mailing

  • Please separate all on and off-campus mail in the appropriate mail bins in your designated mailroom. This prevents us from affixing postage to letters designed to remain on campus.
  • When using inter-departmental mail envelopes, please use the building name and the department in which the person works.
  • All mail or packages that require postage, should be accompanied by a Ship Request Form.
  • Off-campus letters (regular sized #10 envelopes) that need to be sealed should have flaps down, flat against the envelope. Our machine can seal and stamp the letters at the same time.
  • Please separate international mail from domestic (US) mail. International mail requires additional postage. Due to increased security measures, any international piece that weighs more than 1 pound needs to have a customs form attached to the mail piece.
  • All flats should be sealed by the sender. Because of the thickness and the location of the flap, it needs to sealed securely. Our machine does not have the ability to seal anything larger than a regular sized #10 envelope. Sometimes a small piece of tape or a clasp will not do an effective job.
