Mail Center

At the Mail Center, our primary goal is to offer top-notch mail and distribution services to the University campus and regional higher education centers, supporting essential aspects such as teaching, research, student activities, and community programs.

With a well-equipped fleet comprising one sedan, four vans, and two mailing machines, we are fully prepared to cater to the needs of the University community efficiently. Notably, almost half of the University's mail consists of Standard Mail (Bulk Mail), while the remaining portion encompasses various other classes of mail, with first class being the prevailing choice.

At the Mail Center, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional service and handling your mail with utmost care and attention, ensuring timely and reliable delivery for all your important communications.
