Departmental Mail Delivery

Mail delivery routes run between 8:30 am and 2:00 pm. Actual delivery times may vary.

Incoming USPS Mail Delivery

Departments receive mail delivery once a day, at which time any outgoing mail is picked up.  For mail and packages delivered through the United States Postal Service (USPS), most university departments utilize the unique zip code assigned to UofL: 40292.  This mail is delivered by the USPS to UofL Print and Mail Services. UofL Print and Mail Services sorts and delivers all mail received to the department addressed at the designated mail delivery location.

Some departments outside the main university campuses have been assigned street addresses and corresponding zip codes. Mail is delivered directly by the USPS to these departments. Departments are responsible for the redirection of mail received at their department. If a person listed on the mail piece is no longer with the department, it is that department’s responsibility to decide whether to open it or forward it to the person listed. If the person is no longer at the university, mail may be forwarded or returned to sender. Standard permit mail pieces cannot be forwarded and must have an endorsement to be returned.

Addressing

Improperly addressed mail can cause delays or may result in the mail piece being returned to sender, if we are unable to determine the proper recipient. UofL Print & Mail Services deliver university mail by the department name, not the individual recipient’s name or office location. Delivery delays occur when the department name is not stated. Do not use acronyms or abbreviations. The United States Postal Service requires the following formats for incoming university mail:
