Holiday Reduced Operations | Dec. 23, 2017 - Jan. 1, 2018
The Mail Center will not make regular deliveries on Dec. 27, 28, and 29, but will be open until Noon and mail will be sorted and available to departments that wish to pick up mail. Employees picking up mail must provide photo identification. The Mail Center will not deliver FedEx, UPS and other express mail packages unless space is needed on the Central Receiving dock. Departments may pick up packages these days until Noon at Warehouse I, located on 27th Street, but should call first to confirm the expected package has arrived.
Notice - Mail Processing Fee Increase
The University of Iowa Mail Center has been processing University of Northern Iowa United States Postal Service (USPS) Mail since 2002 at a rate of $0.01 per piece plus postage. We recently received notice this fee would be increased to $0.14 per piece beginning July 1, 2017. The UNI Mail Center has implemented procedural changes that will reduce this rate to $.09 per piece plus postage. There will be no changes in procedures or operations for you at this time.
We have also partnered with Postal Source - a premier solutions provider for the mailing, shipping & document processing industry - to help us develop a cost effective long-term mailing and shipping solution.
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.
