Use Mail Services to Distribute Materials Near and Far


Mail Services as we emerge from COVID-19
Mail Services continues to provide the Institute with all services at this time. We will assess needs daily and adapt as Institute recommendations require.

  • We will hold packages and materials for any areas that are closed and not available for deliveries.

Mail collection

  • Collection times on campus have been limited to once daily, at noontime, Monday through Friday.
  • Most collection boxes have resumed service on campus. We do not pick up from collection boxes in buildings that are temporarily closed. Schedules and pick-up status are noted on each box.

Questions may be directed to Marty O'Brien, Senior Manager of Campus Services, or Mike Fahie, Manager of Mail Services.

International service disruptions
Many countries have taken steps in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that impact their postal operations and customer service. Delays in mail and package deliveries are common because of flight cancellations, staff reductions, government measures, and other disruptions in workplaces and daily lives. Please visit the USPS site for information for specific countries.
