Mail Service handles the collection and delivery of all official University correspondence. Mail Service collects, sorts and delivers campus mail twice a day Monday – Friday. Campus mail collected in your department between the hours of 10:00am and 11:00am gets delivered the same day by 3:00pm or the next business day. Campus mail received in Mail Services after noon gets delivery the next mail delivery by 11:00am.
Addressing Campus Mail
We encourage all departments to use the WWU Interdepartment Delivery envelopes for all your campus mail needs. They ask for the information that Mail Services requires to accurately and promptly deliver your mail.
Addressing is the most important factor . Include the recipient’s name and mail stop number. Be sure to cross out the previous address on the campus mailers to avoid confusion.
Mail stop numbers are listed in the current WWU Directory on pages 9 to 11, or click here for a list of all WWU Mailstops.
Examples of correct addressing of Campus Mail
- Faculty/Staff Mail: Vickie Viking MS 9044
- Student Resident: Walter Western 702 Mathes Hall
Empty Campus Mailer Envelopes may be requested by email or phone. Please do not keep large amounts of empties in your department. They need to be available for re-circulation. Return empties to the mail service by bundling them and sending to MS5996.
Campus mail moves most efficiently by having a separate bin at your mail stop for “campus Mail only”.
The location of your mail collection/delivery for on and off campus should be close to the department’s main entrance.
Distributions on campus can be directed to different groups. Please indicate on your mailing the audience you wish to target with your distribution. Large general information mailings addressed to individuals is slower to distribute than counting by target audience.
