Mail is delivered to the Biology and Volen Offices by 10:00 AM
each morning. The incoming mail will be distributed to the appropriate
mailboxes. The Biology and Volen offices will also accept package
deliveries intended for staff and graduate students. If the package
is too big to fit inside a particular mailbox, we will leave a
note in the mailbox indicating that you can retrieve the package
in the office.
Inter-office and outgoing mail can be dropped off in bins at
either the Biology or Volen offices. Please note that once the
morning mail run has been completed, there will not be any more
mail delivery or pickup until the next business day. The other
option is to either drop the outgoing mail by Lab Supplies located
in Kalman, which has a 2:00 PM pickup, or walk it up to the Post
Office located in Usdan.
A mail service form
is required for all non-postage (work/business-related), outgoing
mail, and the chart string information must be listed on the form.
In addition, the form must be signed ("authorized by" box) and
dated ("date" box).
DHL / FEDERAL EXPRESS
DHL is the University's preferred vendor for express shipping
services. Most labs have established their own DHL accounts. Please
contact Ed Perkins (x6-4505 or email)
if your lab is interested in setting up a DHL account.
Please make sure that the chartstring (fund, department ID, program,
and project/grant number) is listed in the shipper's reference
box of the airway bill.
If your lab does not have a DHL account, please contact the Biology
Office for further assistance.
The University no longer maintains a university account with
Federal Express. If there is a requirement that you ship via Federal
Express your lab is responsible for paying for the shipping
charges. Please contact the Biology Office for further assistance.
All DHL and Federal Express shipments should be dropped off at
the Lab Supplies window located at the far end of the Kalman Building
before 2:00 PM for pickup.
