Helpful Hints

  • Mail is picked up by 3 p.m. by the U.S. Postal Services out of the blue mail boxes next to the Central Receiving doors.

  • Outgoing-Time-sensitive items should be called to the attention of the Mail Services clerk; otherwise the item will be sent the most economical way.

  • Carefully consider the necessity of using overnight delivery. Presently UHV has a state contract with Lone Star Overnight and Federal Express for Ground and Next Day delivery. Ground services cost less than overnight delivery.

  • Bulky or oversized envelopes must be sealed. Mailings thicker than ΒΌ" must be placed in heavy-duty envelopes for safe shipping.

  • Interdepartmental mail should list the name and department for proper routing.

  • Outgoing mail must include the department name for proper charging.

  • Business Reply Mail (BRM) requires specialized design format with permit number listed. Contact Mail Services for design before printing envelopes.

  • Bulk Mail permit number must be on all envelopes before sending to Mailroom for handling.
