Daily Mail Delivery
We do one mail run each day and stop at each department to drop off and pick-up mail.
Any outgoing mail not picked up on a mail run should be brought to Mail Services by 2:15 P.M. in order to be mailed out that day.
We do courier service to West Lafayette each day. Any interoffice mail can be sent to West Lafayette, Hammond/Westville and IPFW this way. We do not offer courier mail services to the IUPUI Campus.

Please contact us at Westville ext. 5550 or Hammond ext. 2458 so we can help you decide what is the best way to ship your package. The university has negotiated contracts with some of the carriers that can save you money. Depending on what you are sending and how quickly you need to get it there, we can help you decide what will work best for your needs. We do have a shipping form you will need to complete and you will also need to provide us with an account number to charge your shipment to.
If you have shipped packages through us before and you know what carrier you want and the type of service you want, please just fill out the proper form and bring it over with your packaged shipment.
It should be in Mail Services no later than 2:30 p.m. If the package is going to an international destination it may require extra time for processing.
Please contact us at least a day in advance if any domestic packages containing hazardous material like dry ice, chemicals, etc. will need to be shipped. We don’t need the package 24 hours in advance. We just need all the information so that it can be processed.
We don’t have packaging material for sale. We do our best to recycle shipping material like boxes, packaging peanuts and bubble wrap so we sometimes have those items available free to use. If you are in need of that material, you can contact us and see if we have some available. It is your responsibility to pack up whatever you are sending and get it ready to ship. We can also assist you in doing so in our area.
Mail Services should not be used for delivery of personal materials. All personal mail and packages should be addressed to the staff member’s home address.
