High Tech with a Human Touch
Due to new barcoding requirments by USPS,Mail Services no longer process bulk mailings on campus.These must be processed through an off campus vendor.If you need assistance with locating a vendor,please do not hesitate to contact us.
All bulk mailings require 5 days advance notice before being dropped at the Melbourne Post Office—BMEU, (Bulk Mail Entry Unit). Mailings will NOT be accepted without prior approval.
Complete and submit the Bulk Mail Approval Form and return to Mail Services via campus mail.
The service is designed to deliver U.S. mail and campus mail to all departments, staff members, and students. The service is established to deliver mail in a place of business, and the content of delivered mail should relate to the official business of the University.
The Mailroom staff is available for consultation regarding mail preparation and addressing. The campus community is encouraged to call the Mailroom with specific questions or to arrange for an on-site visit.
Mail Pickup and Delivery
The mail is picked up and delivered at scheduled times from the Mailroom to the campus community, off-site locations, and the Melbourne Post Office. Routes are occasionally revised due to changes in mail volume and flow. Please coordinate with the Mailroom to arrange for the pickup of an unusually large amount of outgoing mail or large packages and boxes.
PACKAGE HOLD TIME (30 Days)

Outgoing mail that requires postage is processed through a meter machine in the Mailroom. Metered mail should be separated from other mail. Metered mail must be delivered to the U.S. Post Office the same day it is metered.
