-- Know your mail pick-up time schedule.
-- Keep US Mail separate from campus mail.
-- Always include the person's name, department and campus location on all campus envelopes.
-- Don't wait until late in the day, especially on Fridays, to inquire as to delivery status of an item.
-- All mail sent to post office box numbers must have postage.
-- Everyone (with only a few exceptions) at Yale, including students, should be receiving all of their mail through their post office box.
-- Advise departing faculty and staff that mail will be forwarded for only a short period of time, say 3 months. Use the Junk Mail Program for mail that you want to stop receiving or for people that are no longer at your address.
-- Sort all large campus mailings: Central area is sorted by building, Medical and Science areas by department.
-- Use only Official Yale Interoffice Envelopes for campus mail. These cost less when purchased through the Central Stockroom and require the correct information. Click here for the Stock list and ordering instructions.
