Mail Center

Mail Center Overview

The UNI Mail Center picks up and delivers outgoing, incoming, and intra-campus mail and packages related to the official business of the University. This includes office products and cleaning supplies.

University and State of Iowa regulations do not allow the UNI Mail Center to distribute personal mail or packages, including FedEx and UPS. Do not use your University address to receive items of a personal or private business nature. Under no circumstances will the UNI Mail Center be responsible for any delay or damage to material not meeting the official business criteria.

The UNI Mail Center is open 7:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. 


Mail Center Unable to Deliver to Locked Offices

In an ongoing review of campus security and building/office access it was determined Mail Center staff will no longer enter locked offices to deliver mail or packages.    As a result, if your office is not open during regular mail delivery hours (typically 8:00am to 3:30pm), alternate arrangements will need to be made for delivery.

If you are affected by this, please contact Marisa James or Jeff Van Gelder to discuss a long term resolution.  This could include delivering mail to an alternate location in a building, utilizing a locking mailbox, or simply having the mail held for pickup.
