Can I purchase stamps at the UC Information Services Desk and how many will I need?
Yes, you can purchase stamps individually or in a book of 20. You can also purchase international stamps. We can weigh packages and large envelopes (up to 13 oz.) to determine how much postage you will need to purchase.
Can I ship my package at the UC Information Services Desk?
Yes, as long as the package is USPS or UPS (not FedEx or DHL) you can leave it in our mailbox which is picked up twice daily (Monday - Friday at 9:30am and 2:30pm).
Are there supplies to help me ship my item?
Yes, we sell bubble wrap mailers, envelopes, cardboard boxes and Priority Flat-Rate boxes as well as packaging tape and bubble wrap. All of these items are under $2.25 and our Information Services staff can help you assemble your package and determine the least expensive way to ship (purchasing postage vs. a Flat-Rate box).
Will my package have a tracking number?
No, if you use regular postage (stamps), a cardboard box or envelope you will not be able to track your package. The Information Services Desk has guides on how to log into the Click-N-Ship option through USPS which does provide automatic tracking and insurance.
How often does the mail get picked up from the UC Information Services Desk?
Twice a day, Monday through Friday. Once at 9:30am and then again at 2:30pm.
