Faculty and staff receive mail two times per day. Offices on the main campus receive mail between 8:00-10:00 AM and 12:00-2:00 PM. Offices located on East Campus and off-campus houses receive their mail between 10:00-11:30 AM and 2:00-3:00 PM. Mail should be placed in the "mailbag" located in your office. If you have a large mailing, please contact the campus post office at 66903 to make arrangements to have it picked up.
Please separate all on and off-campus mail. This prevents us from affixing postage to letters designed to remain on campus. Just paperclip or rubber band any on-campus letters together.
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.
When using inter-departmental mail envelopes, please use the department in which the person works. DO NOT use building and room numbers. We have no idea who is in what room. For example, use Dr. Janet Dudley-Eshbach President's Office- Not HH 230.
Off-campus letters( regular sized #10 envelopes) that need to be sealed should have flaps up (nested). Tuck each letter's flap inside the next one. Our machine can seal and stamp the letters at the same time.
All flats should be sealed when they are received at the SU Post Office (SUPO). Because of the thickness and the location of the flap, it needs to sealed securely. Sometimes a small piece of tape or a clasp will not do an effective job.
Our last mail pickup by the USPS (United States Postal Service) each day is 2:30 PM. Anything received in our office afterwards gets postmarked and sent out the following day. If something is urgent and you can't make it here by 2:30, we can postmark it for you and you can take it to the USPS yourself.
We only offer services that are provided by the USPS. We offer priority mail(2-3 days), certifiedmail, delivery confirmation, & insured mail. We also sell stamps both individually and in books. We do not offer money orders! We also do not offer FED EX, UPS, Airborne or any other carrier. These services are provided by either the Accounts Payable office in HH or at Central Receiving on Bateman St across from the track.
Fed Ex and UPS packages are handled a bit differently. All recipients are called when receiving a Fed Ex/UPS package. The item is logged in and the person indicates whether he/she would like the package delivered or if he/she will pick up. Packages that are too big for the mailbags will be sent over to Support Services for delivery.
- Try not to wait until Friday to get a huge or bulk mail out before the weekend. I can't guarantee that we can process it in time for that day's pickup.
- When using the generic SU envelopes, write your name or dept. as part of the return address. When these envelopes come back, I or my staff have to open them to route them correctly and there may some important confidential information contained inside.
- Our meter is for Salisbury University business use only. We don't provide postage for personal mail in a SU envelope i.e. Comcast, Verizon, Visa, etc.
