The Campus Mail Department processes all on- and off-campus mail, excluding Housing Student mail. Housing Student mail should be addressed directly to the student using the Housing mailing address distributed upon move-in. As of July 1, 2021, all USPS mail using an HM500 fund will be tracked and paid for centrally. Departments should still provide the chartfields for reporting purposes, but departments will not be directly charged for outgoing USPS mail using HM500 funds. Please note that any unusual mail activity may result in a department chargeback.

The Campus Mailroom (not including Housing) is located in Shipping & Receiving Building, directly to the north of Facilities Management, on the corner of B and 14th streets. 

Whenever possible, please use the internal University Mail Services provided by Facilities Management for all your USPS postal needs. The University has budgeted state-funded postal services through one department, FM Shipping & Receiving. If you have questions about postage or anything related to shipping & receiving, please call our Shipping & Receiving team at x3932 during our open hours: M-F 8am-noon, and 12:30-4:00pm.


Off Campus Mail

When shipping packages through UPS, please provide the recipient’s address, phone number and PeopleSoft chartfield. For International shipping, please provide the recipient’s phone number, address, zip code, description of contents. If you want to insure your package please include the value of the content you are shipping. All packages must be to Shipping & Receiving by 12:00 pm (noon) to be shipped out same day. Please include a paper copy of the Mailing/Shipping form when dropping off freight to Shipping & Receiving. 

Personal Package & Mail Policy

Faculty and Staff are reminded that State resources shall not be used for personal inbound or outbound mail or freight. The Campus Mail Department handles official Humboldt business mail & freight only. This includes U.S. Mail, UPS, overnight express carriers, and on-campus mail. Campus Mail Services cannot accept, pickup, or deliver personal/unofficial mail. Non-university related items and/or personal items should not be sent to Cal Poly Humboldt and will be refused by Campus Mail Services. Personal mail will be returned to the sender if the origin can be determined without opening sealed envelopes. For your personal mailing convenience, there is an outgoing USPS Mail Box located next to the Student & Business Services building on Harpst Steet.
