Postal Services for UWF Departments
Services provided include campus mail, preparing and processing business mailings, courier service, training classes and more.
Campus Mail System
Campus or interdepartmental/interoffice mail service is provided free of charge to the main University campus once each workday to most locations. The UWF Courier provides a regular route to off-campus locations. Campus Mail, as well as First-Class and Express Mail, is assigned the highest priority in sorting and delivery. Campus Mail must be placed at mail stop locations and areas designated for this purpose in each department /building. All mail will be picked up and delivered at these same locations.
- Campus mail should be addressed as follows:
- Name of Addressee
- Office / Department Name
- Building Number (Room number is optional)
Mail must be separated clearly by category – Mail to be processed and metered by UWF Postal Services; bulk mail; campus mail; resident student mail; mail for the UWF courier; and personal stamped U.S. Postal Service mail. International mail should be separated from the domestic mail.
Supplies and large mailings – UWF mailers should call 474-6208 if extra containers or postal supplies are needed. They should also call in advance to warn UWF Postal Services if larger than normal volumes or big mailings requiring carts/dollies will be needed.
Notice (Jan. 26, 2020) - Postage Rate Increase: The U.S. Postal Service has announced a retail postage rate increase of about 2.5 percent on Jan. 26. However, First-Class Mail rates remain the same and a one ounce First-Class Forever Stamp will stay 55-cents each. Priority, Express, Flat Rates, Bulk Mail, and some Service Fees are included in the increase. The good news is that all desktop departmental First-Class letters and flats processed by UWF Postal Services will receive a 5-cent postage discount. Detailed U. S. Postal Service rates and fees can be found at https://pe.usps.com/cpim/ftp/
