Faculty & Staff
The University Post Office sends a consolidated postage bill for each department that has sent outgoing mail through the United States Postal Service at the beginning of each month to Fiscal Affairs. This bill will represent the previous month's postage activity.
Departmental Mail Sent to Students that live in Housing
The University Post Office receives mail from several departments for students and is placed in the student's mailbox. At the end of the semester if the student is discovered to no longer be in housing, the student's mail is removed from the mailbox and is returned to the sender. Therefore, it could be several months before mail going to a student that has a mailbox is returned to the department.
Departmental Mail Sent to Students that do not live in Housing
Several students receive mail from departments but no longer live or never lived in campus housing. This type of mail is marked by the University Post Office as "no longer lives in campus housing" and is returned to the department.
