US or Campus Mail

Place outgoing business and campus mail in the designated slots beneath faculty mailboxes. Outgoing personal mail can be placed in the grey mailbox unit across the hall from the faculty and graduate student mailboxes.  Mail is picked up twice daily at 7:45 am and 1:45 pm. Incoming mail usually arrives at 1:45 pm (Mondays and after holidays mail arrives a bit later). Please allow an hour for distribution.

Departmental mail

Place in the departmental slot beneath mailboxes. Mail is distributed about every 2 hours.

Large Items

Leave large outgoing items under the mail slots. (The department office cannot open the US and campus mailboxes.) If you receive a package or other large item, you will receive and email to claim your package at the front desk.

Trouble with mailbox locks?

Ask the front desk staff; they can confirm your locker code or get your mail for you until the problem is fixed.

The department's fax number is 471-3510. The machine is located in the department office BRB 1.116.

Outgoing faxes are to be submitted in the fax box at the reception counter. You will need to provide your personal access code; the FAX transmission charge will be billed to your number as a regular long distance call.  After the fax has been sent, the document along with a confirmation page will be placed in your mailbox.  Incoming faxes are placed in your mailboxes as they arrive. 

Graduate students and TA's who need to send faxes are welcome to use the machine but long-distance faxes require you to use your calling card. Departmental faxes will take priority over graduate student use.
