OSUIT operates a contract postal station located on the Southwest end of the student union next to the student union bookstore. The lobby remains open during building hours.
Normal post office services are available except for C.O.D. and money orders. Students receive mail on campus either through a campus post office box, general delivery, or a residence hall box. Boxes can be rented for a small charge per semester with the charge being based on box size. Box assignments and rental payments are made at the campus post office. General delivery mail must be picked up at the post office window. Students living in the residence halls receive their mail in their residence hall. Students living in England and Hannigan Hall are encouraged to obtain a post office box.
The campus post office provides two types of service: 1) window services for the sale of stamps, mail box rental, etc. from 9:30 am to 4:15 pm Monday through Friday and, 2) a mail delivery and mailing service to units on campus. No mail deliveries are scheduled on weekends.
Post Office Window Services
Window services are on a cash basis to individuals and charge by way of postage meter to the various OSUIT units. Window hours will vary during inclement weather and campus break periods based upon student and unit needs.
Mail services are designed to give twice a day delivery and pick up of on-campus and off-campus mail to each unit. The exception to this is the Library which picks up its own mail in the morning (due to volume), but receives regular delivery services in the afternoon.
Outgoing mail should be segregated by unit into (a) on-campus mail and (b) off-campus mail. If special instructions are needed, a written note should be attached. Mail service is intended to be used for official university business mail only.
All mail will be processed at the lowest cost postal rate possible unless otherwise specified (example: marked first class, priority, etc.).
