The Central Mailroom also delivers Yale's outgoing mail to the Brewery Street terminal at the close of each day.
Mike Madera is the supervisor for the Central Mailroom. He will be delighted to assist you with any mailing problems you may have, including suggestions on department moves and stationery design.
The Mailroom is staffed by Leadperson Janice Sullivan, along with Lynette Holloway, Donald Greene, Margaret Nelson, William Perry and Karen Young. These mail clerks faithfully deliver your mail each day and would be glad to answer any questions you have.

Mail Volume and Level of Service
The Central Mailroom uses only 7 employees. These employees must sort and deliver U.S. and campus mail each day to more than 120 mail stops around campus. This is an amazing accomplishment considering the volume this mailroom handles!
U.S. Mail -- Each week the Central Mailroom receives over 65,000 pieces of mail from the U.S. Postal Service! The mail that is properly addressed using the department's box number and correct ZIP Code is received bagged from the U.S. Postal Service. This mail is put directly on to the truck for that route and is delivered that day. Mail that is not properly addressed must be hand sorted. This mail is sorted that day and is delivered the next business day. To avoid this delay, be sure to use your complete address.
Campus Mail -- The Central Mailroom handles 20,000 pieces of campus mail each week. In addition, payroll checks/deposit receipts are done 4-5 times a month and many large campus mailings arrive daily. Mail is picked up from each department and sorted the same day. It is delivered to the designated building the following business day. Each building is responsible for sorting and distributing within their building.
