United Parcel Service (UPS) and FedEx deliver packages to destinations outside the university. Packages within size and weight limitations may be placed in campus mail for delivery to UPS/FedEx on the same day. Package Pick Up fees will not be charged for packages sent through campus mail for delivery to UPS/FedEx. All UPS/FedEx packages must have a shipping address label attached to each box and a UPS/FedEx transaction card for each package to be delivered.

Please note: UPS/FedEx will deliver only to street addresses and not to P.O., A.P.O., or F.P.O. boxes.

International Deliveries

Packages sent to international destinations (outside of the United States) must be accompanied by a completed Waybill, original invoice, and two copies of the original invoice. These forms may be obtained from Departmental Mail.

All international deliveries must have a destination telephone number, complete street address, and postal code of the destination country.
