Winter break curtails mail delivery

Mail services

As the university prepares to close for winter break, so will the university intercampus mail service. Cindy Farrell, assistant mail supervisor, above, in the postal service in the University Union. 

The university will be closed Dec. 22-Jan. 1. Business operations resume at 8 a.m. Jan. 2.

Bulk mail must be brought to the postal service facility by Dec. 14 and first class mail must arrive by Dec. 21. These deadlines allow Printing and Distribution Solutions, which manages university mail service, to meet U.S. Postal Service deadlines for delivery.

Here are deadlines:

Standard class bulk mail

Bulk mail must be received on or before 5 p.m. Dec. 14. Mailings will be accepted after Dec.14, but are not guaranteed to be processed before break. Service will resume Jan. 2.

First class mail

All mail from one department is limited to 200 pieces on Dec. 21 and must arrive by noon that day. Mail will be delivered and picked up on the afternoon of Dec. 21. Individual mail must arrive by 2 p.m. Dec. 21. Mail arriving after that deadline, or in excess of the 200 piece limit, will be processed only as time and personnel allow, and after mail that arrived by deadline has been processed. Mail which cannot be processed by 4 p.m. will be held until Jan. 2.

Department mail

Before you apply that stamp to a Christmas card to send to a campus department, save the postage and send it in an inter-departmental envelope for same day or next day delivery.

Eagle Express

To make Eagle Express more efficient during the holiday season, we will NOT be putting departmental mail in the boxes.

If your department anticipates picking up mail during the break, please send a list of authorized users to Kathy Fischer by 5 p.m. Dec. 19.  Only those whose names appear on the departmental authorized user list will be able to pick up mail at the window during the break.  Please bring a picture ID when retrieving mail.

Mail received from the post office should be ready for departmental pickup by 2 p.m. from Dec. 24 through Dec. 31, barring difficulties at the Denton Post Office. Normal letter mail, untracked parcels, and red notification cards for trackable items will be sorted by the department in a secure area of Eagle Express and available for pickup at the service counter. This special pick up process will be in effect only when the Printing and Distribution Solutions mail service is not in operation from Dec. 24-31. Normal campus service will resume Jan. 2.

There will be no service Dec. 25 or Jan. 1.

A self-service kiosk is in the lobby of the postal service.
