Campus Mail and U.S. Mail

There is no longer University Libraries mail pick-up. All mail is delivered through campus mail and must be taken to Campus Mail and U.S. Mail boxes found throughout campus. Law library mail is picked up by acquisitions staff from mail crates in Access Services, sorted for campus and U.S. mail and taken to the appropriate boxes for Campus Mail pick-up. There are boxes located on the third floor of the Law School outside Room 305. This is done at least once a day, preferably multiple times per day. Campus mail deliveries are not reliable, so you must check periodically.

U.S. mail which needs metering is required to have the proper paperwork attached. Forms can be found here  (

For account numbers, consult the file in the Y: drive.
