Addresses for Campus Buildings
In the fall 2001 UMD had street addresses posted on buildings. The signs display the building name and address and are visible from the street. The goal is a safer, more easily navigated campus. This provides effective emergency response times and makes it easier for first-time visitors to find their way around campus.

Mail Pick Up and Delivery Schedule
Mail delivery and pick up, to and from departments on the UMD Campus will be limited to one route daily with the exception of the Darland Administration Building. Service will be in the morning, leaving the Mail Room approximately 10:00 a.m., with the possibility of minor delays due to elevator and construction work throughout the summer. The Mail Room can hold mail for any department throughout the summer upon request.
(Mondays and days following holidays may vary due to heavy volume which increases sort time.)
Outgoing Mail Deadlines
Outgoing Mail Preparation
All outgoing University mail needing to be stamped must have an authorization slip attached. If you want to know the cost of your mailing, send two authorization slips. The duplicate will be returned to you with the cost noted. Order Authorization Slips from the UMD Print Shop.
The Mail Room has an obligation, and will exercise that obligation, to send the mail within the most efficient and cost saving manner possible. The Mail Room personnel may ask you to send mail in a different rate/manner in order to realize a savings to the department and the University as a whole. If you have any questions please call the mail room at 8287.
Mail Room can only deliver the mail correctly when a complete address for each campus department or individual is included. Please give a complete address when filling in purchasing documents or when giving information for mail to you. In addition, outgoing mail should have a University, department address, city, state, and zip +4.
We are unable to determine who has been added or deleted from faculty/staff without notification. The form for Campus Address Changes can be obtained from the Mail Room to be used when faculty/staff changes occur or you may download a PDF version.

See separate booklet (located in department or college office): Information For Effective Mailing for specific instructions on mail preparation for the various categories of mail.
