Sending Mail to Faculty and Staff
The Campus Post Office delivers mail to a centralized location (usually the department office) and the department then distributes the mail to individual employees. Campus Mail is usually delivered once per day Monday through Friday (except on holidays). Contact the Post Office for more information about campus mail delivery routes and timing.
For inter-office mail to arrive faster, include the campus box number. Campus box numbers are primarily assigned based on the department, but sometimes on physical location.
If an employee is hybrid or remote they will be assigned to the box number used by their department and/or manager. The department will determine how best to deliver campus mail to the hybrid and remote employees.
How do I send mail internally at Amherst?
To send an item through campus mail, simply write the recipient’s name and campus box number on the envelope or parcel and place the item in the outgoing mail for your department. Check with your department about where mail is received and delivery times.
How do I find someone’s campus box number?
Log in to Workday with your Amherst credentials. Type the person’s name in the search box and click on their profile. The campus box number will appear after AC# in the work address section.
