Outbound Packages & Freight

Policies

Packages must be given to the campus carrier no later than 1 p.m. to be shipped out the same day. 

We require a full name, full address, zip code and return address to be indicated at the time of mailing. Packages will be weighed at Central Receiving. 

For packages with anticipated charges beyond the reasonable and customary, the department may be billed back for the cost. The department will be asked for a speed type and administrator name at the time of mailing.

Absolutely no personal items may be shipped through Central Receiving or using account numbers intended for university business. University account numbers are to be used for shipment of university-owned property only.

University departments are encouraged to create their own accounts under pre-negotiated carrier contracts to realize great savings. Contact the Purchasing and Strategic Contracting Department for assistance in setting up such accounts.
