Contact us

To contact Mail & Receiving, please call 314-362-3100.

Mail & Receiving operates docks at four locations on campus. Our services include receiving inbound freight and supplies for pickup by department representatives. Our docks utilize a computerized tracking system that allows our department to track your packages from the moment they arrive at the dock until your staff signs for them. We also operate two sorting room locations, which include receiving and sorting U.S. mail and inter-campus mail.
