Mail Pickup and Delivery

Schools or departments that produce a large volume of mail generally have two pickups and deliveries per day; one between 9 and 11 a.m. and the other between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. Routes are occasionally revised because of changes in mail volume and flow. Please call Mailing Services to arrange for the pickup of an unusually large amount of outgoing mail or large packages and boxes.

Mail Collection Boxes

First-class mail is collected from U.S. Postal Service blue collection boxes located on campus once a day. Interdepartmental mail should never be deposited in a U.S. Postal Service collection box. USC mail collection boxes, painted cardinal and gold, are used exclusively for interdepartmental mail and outgoing mail accompanied by an Outgoing Mail Requisition. Mail is collected from these boxes once daily (Monday through Friday) at 5:15 p.m.(Effective 8/3/2015). Outgoing mail accompanied by a requisition will be processed the same evening and delivered to the post office. Interdepartmental mail is delivered the following morning.
