You must include your index number in the right upper corner of the envelope. Under the index number write "via pouch", this will alert mail services to include it in the express mail package.

US Postal Services (USPS) Mail Guidelines

  • All mail for the US postal service should be placed in the outgoing mail bin located in RM 2233.
  • Clearly mark your CSE index number on the upper right side of the envelope. Your index number will be charged the appropriate postage. If you fail to include an index number on outgoing mail, it will not be delivered and will be returned to the department.
  • Place your name and the department mail code (0404) in the return mailing address.
  • The mail is delivered and picked up twice a day, once in the morning and again in the afternoon.
  • There is no mail pick-up or delivery on weekends, scheduled holidays, or other days when the department's administrative offices are officially closed.
  • Larger incoming delivery packages are usually stored on top of the faculty mailboxes.
  • Please note that there is sometimes a delay between the time mail is picked up from the department and when it leaves campus for delivery. If you have time sensitive materials, it is recommended that you either place them in the one of the USPS drop boxes on campus (nearest to CSE is at the north end of the Faculty Club parking lot), bring to the on-campus USPS post office (located in the Price Center). Since these materials go through no further processing before leaving campus, all materials mailed in the manner MUST contain proper postage. Index numbers are not sufficient.
