Welcome to Mail Services

IMPORTANT: Service Update

Mail Deliveries 

  • USPS and campus mail delivery continues as usual to accessible buildings. However, the Postal Service has developed localized service continuity updates. 
  • For some buildings, where we have established a mutual agreement, we have moved to drop-dock deliveries. You may also arrange to pick-up your departmental mail and parcels at Mail Services. To arrange this service, please email USD.DL.MailServices@msu.edu or call (517) 884-6084.

Holding Mail

  • Campus mail: If your department is now working remotely and you need your campus mail and parcels held or delivered weekly, please send an email to USD.DL.MailServices@msu.edu or call (517) 884-6084.
  • USPS mail: Departments must notify the East Lansing Post Office at (517) 351-1024 or fill out the USPS Hold Mail Form to request your USPS mail be held.

Closed Building Information

FedEx and UPS are advising if direct-to-building parcels (those that do not go through Central Receiving) are undeliverable due to closed buildings, they will return the shipment to the sender. Please contact the carrier for assistance. We are allowing FedEx/UPS to deliver parcels to Central Receiving if the carrier is unable to deliver.

FedEx: (800) 463-3339
UPS: (800) 742-5877
USPS: Arrange to Hold USPS Mail. Mail can be held up to 30 days. A new request must be submitted if, after the 30 days, you require your mail to continue to be held.

Freight Surcharge Information
