Campus Mail Distribution and Pick-Up Guidelines
The campus postal operation picks up and delivers mail to designated campus points daily, Monday through Friday. Mail should be separated into four categories before UPO personnel arrive for pick-up:
The on-campus mail service is only available for University's official activities. Examples of inappropriate mail are: greeting cards, political literature, personal notes, chain letters, Mary Kay or Avon brochures or catalogs, and other material not involving official University business. These types of on-campus mail may not be deposited at the UPO or accepted by the University staff, unless it bears sufficient postage to be accepted by the USPS. Please use the Faculty, Staff, and Student Directory for the correct campus address. Campus mail should be placed in either an Interdepartmental Delivery envelope or in a Campus only #10 envelope. Campus mail can be delivered in a timely fashion if it is addressed properly. Please place accurate dates on all out going mail to the campus community and place the mail in the out-going mail pick-up bin as soon as possible. Mail that is not dated in a timely fashion may not be accepted for delivery by the UPO. On Campus Residence Hall mail is delivered to the Housing Office in Thompson Hall and the Hall Directors distribute to the student's mail boxes.
Off-Campus Metered Mail
The UPO requires a Postage Charge Card with the following information when submitting mail that needs metered.
- Departmental Authorizing Signature
- Department Name
- Phone Number
- Department Account Number (budget unit number)
Off-campus mail will not be picked up and metered unless a completed Postage Charge Card is attached. All mail in University envelopes, cartons or other mailing containers must reflect the return address of the sender (office) on the exterior of the mailing piece. Postage meters and postage stamps purchased with University funds may not be used for the mailing of any material which is not official University business. Illegal use of postage meters is a violation of KRS 514.060 (theft of services) and illegal taking of University property (stamps, envelopes, etc.) is a violation of KRS 514.030. Both offenses, if the value is less than $100, are Class A Misdemeanors and carry penalties of 12 months imprisonment and/or a $500 fine.
Personal mail will only be accepted by UPO personnel if the appropriate amount of personal paid postage is appended. Packages received at the University Post Office for faculty or staff that are of a personal nature will not be delivered. Individuals who receive packages that are of a personal nature will be called and asked to come by the UPO to pick them up. An example would be items ordered from LTD Commodities, Inc.
Specially printed business reply cards and envelopes should be used by departments needing a prepaid reply from an addressee. When using the business reply, the University is required to pay postage only if the card or envelope is returned by the correspondent. Do not use envelopes with the permit imprint for a prepaid return envelope. Only business reply envelopes can be used for this purpose.
Residence Hall Mail Delivery
Delivery of mail to University residence halls is the responsibility of the Morehead Post Office. The Director of Housing will provide a secure location in each hall and provide all necessary keys to the Morehead Post Office for the daily delivery of mail.
