Facilities Operations Update

Holiday notice from Central Mail and Receiving Services

Please be conscious when placing perishable orders for delivery during the Thanksgiving Holiday week.

The WUSM and Danforth Receiving docks will be closed on Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25.

However, most delivery services will be open and making business deliveries on Friday, November 25. Fedx, UPS and the other delivery services know that Washington University docks will be closed and will not attempt to deliver to our docks November 24 and 25.
It is very important that labs not place orders for perishables to be delivered on November 24 or 25 because those items will not be delivered to the WUSM docks until Monday, November 28, 2022, and the delivery companies have no way of storing refrigerated or frozen items over that period.

For any questions, please contact Steve Smith, Manager of Mail and Receiving Services.
