Overnight Delivery Services

New York University has an agreement with United Parcel Service (UPS), the world's largest express carrier and package delivery Service Company, for both domestic and international overnight letter service. UPS is NYU's sole provider of express air and land shipping services, however, they will not deliver to a P.O. Box number. For Overnight service to a P.O. Box, you must use U.S. Postal Express Mail next day service.

UPS Accounts

To establish an account with UPS, please fill-out the new account information form.

For those departments that have established accounts the link below will lead them to the mandatory UPS online shipping tool, CampusShip. You must already be set up in CampusShip to log in. Contact Logistics and Reprographics for more information and assistance.

For those departments that rarely generate overnight mail/packages and do not wish to open a UPS account, Logistics and Distribution Services can process the occasional request.
