Mail Services handles the processing and distribution of all outgoing mail, both U.S. Postal Service (USPS) and campus mail, for the UC Berkeley campus. It acts as a liaison with the USPS and other carriers to ensure that the UC Berkeley campus gets the most competitive mail or shipping rates and the best possible service.
In order to guarantee the successful delivery and optimal mail rate for your outgoing mail piece, Mail Services advises that you adhere to the address format and placement recommended by the USPS. You can also take advantage of other mechanisms offered by the USPS to reduce the cost of your outgoing mail, such as Automation Compatible Mail and Barcoding.
A Mail Services representative can help you determine the appropriate mail class and rate for your outward-bound domestic or international mailing. If you’re communicating with another campus department or UC campus or lab, we will ensure your mail piece reaches its destination as quickly as possible.
In order to facilitate the smooth flow of outgoing USPS and campus mail, Mail Services works in close cooperation with campus departments to efficiently service the ultimate customer – individual faculty, staff and students. Campus departments are tasked with the following key responsibilities:
Please note: if you don’t follow these guidelines consistently, you may experience delays in processing, errors in recharging, or additional charges
Mail Services provides one delivery per department per day in mid to late morning. At this time, incoming USPS and campus mail is delivered, and outgoing USPS and campus mail is collected. There is no charge for this service, with the exception of Auxiliary Enterprises (see the Rates and Services section).
A regularly scheduled second daily delivery/pickup can be arranged for an additional charge. Please call 643-MAIL for more information.
