Changes to Mail Services, Central Stores and UPS/Fedex delivery process announced

mailThe Administrative Services unit within Facilities Management has announced important changes to the Mail Services, Central Stores, and UPS/FedEx delivery process at UW-Eau Claire. To better align with the university's Strategic Plan, improve sustainability efforts and not increase the cost of processing mail, the chancellor's executive staff have approved a new delivery and pickup system.

Beginning April 16, 2012, we will transition to a system of four concurrent mail and package routes on campus. Each route will be staffed by one delivery person who will deliver mail, UPS/FedEx, Central Stores orders and Staples (MDS) orders. This staff member also will pick up mail from departments at that time. This will be the only delivery and pickup to individual departments each day. Staff members will, however, pick up at approximately 2:45 p.m. from the appropriate drop boxes at the end of each route. Pick up times will be posted on each drop box.

The new routes will be structured as follows:
  • Route 1, 11 a.m. — Schofield Hall, Old Library, McIntyre Library.
  • Route 2, 12:30 p.m.— Phillips Hall, Davies Center, Nursing Building, Putnam Hall, Thomas Hall.
  • Route 3, 12:30 p.m. — Schneider Hall, Brewer Hall, Hibbard Hall.
  • Route 4, 12:30 p.m. — McPhee Center, Upper Campus residence halls, Hilltop Center, Crest Wellness, Haas Fine Arts Center, Human Sciences and Services Building, Continuing Education.
Post office box customers will continue to receive their mail in the morning with no changes to the existing plan. For more information, contact Erik Simonsen, Administrative Services supervisor, at 715-836-4283 or
