Pick-Up and Delivery

Mail pick-up and delivery occurs in the afternoon between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to University departments and offices on the Washington Square campus. Couriers make regularly scheduled deliveries to off-campus University locations once daily.

Incoming mail is picked up daily from three area U.S. Post Offices. All mail received from the USPS is delivered on the same day.

  • If you should miss the last pick-up of the day, you may bring your mail to the Logistics and Distribution Services Customer Service window at 547 LaGuardia Place Monday through Friday until 4:30 p.m.
  • If you are not familiar with the approximate time and location of mail pick-up and delivery for your department, contact Logistics and Distribution Services at 212.998.1010 (x8.1010) for specific information.
