  • Campus Mail Guidelines

    Addressing is the most important factor affecting the campus mail system.

    • Always indicate the person's full name and exact division, not the larger department (i.e., Medicine) where the employee works
    • Although abbreviations or acronyms may be meaningful to you, they may delay delivery of the mail if they are unclear to the postal worker.
    • When in doubt, use the UMMC campus directory or the Outlook address book as a reference.
    • Campus mail placed in anything other than a campus mail envelope must be marked "CAMPUS MAIL" by the department in the upper right corner of the envelope.

    Below are some examples of campus mail addressing:

    Incorrect:

    Bill   /   Hospital                Problem:  No last name, department or division

    Bill Smith   /   Hospital       Problem:  No department or division

    Correct:

    Bill Smith

    Department of Medicine

    Division of Infectious Diseases

    Other Guidelines to Consider:

    • Keep campus mail separate from all other mail.
    • Campus mail placed in anything other than a campus mail envelope must be marked CAMPUS MAIL by the department in the upper right corner of the envelope.
    • Bulk mailings (200 or more pieces) are to be addressed with computer labels

    Campus Mail Envelopes:

    Any excess supply of used envelopes can be returned to UMMC Mail Service for re-use.  Used campus envelopes may be requested at an time.

    If you should experience service delays, contact the UMMC Mail Service Department at 984-1395 and review the internal procedures with the postmaster.
