Tiger Post


Mission

The primary mission of the Mail Room is to provide a speedy and safe avenue for the Administration, Faculty, Staff and Students to receive and distribute mail. We strive to provide a clean and neat building, a friendly and professional atmosphere while serving our clientele.

 

General Information

The mail room provides postal and print services to all university departments, faculty, staff and students enrolled at the university. Mail Services boxes are assigned to all university units on campus. Students should renew mail services box number registration each school term: Spring, Fall, and Summer sessions in order to continue receiving mail. To obtain a mail services box number, students must complete all eight steps of the registration process and the Mail Services box number Registration Survey Steps below.

A mailbox key is no longer required; however, a mail services box number will be assigned to you after you have completed registration and submitted the Mail Services box number Registration Survey.  Only after the required survey fields are completed will you be assigned a mail services box number.  Mail services box numbers are assigned within five business days.  To obtain your mail services box number assignment, login to your student account in Banner Web and follow the steps outlined on the Mail Services box number Registration Survey Steps.  If your mail services box number does not appear within five business days, please contact the mailroom at extensions 2255 or 4457.

Mail received through USPS is processed from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. Please allow time for mail center staff to complete mail processing before inquiring about mail or packages.  You will receive an email when you have mail or packages to retrieve.

For additional information, please contact Terrance Giles, Director, at extension 4457 or Chrysanthia West, Administrative Coordinator I, at extension 2255.
