Because of a reduction in the number of faculty and staff who are working on campus as Western Carolina University implements stricter measures designed to help limit the spread of COVID-19, on-campus delivery of mail will be suspended for the month of April.
Effective Wednesday, April 1, through Thursday, April 30, mail will be available for pick-up and drop-off at Mail Operations, located at the university Print Shop on Norton Road. Each department or unit should designate an employee to collect and drop off mail at the mail room between 10 a.m.-noon and 2-4 p.m. weekdays.
In addition, packages delivered by the U.S. Postal Service will remain at the campus mail room, and recipients will be notified by email that packages are available for pick-up.
Packages delivered by UPS will be taken to offices that are open at the time of delivery. If offices are closed at the time delivery is attempted, the packages will be rerouted to the university warehouse. Warehouse staff will notify departments by email that the packages are available for pick-up between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.
Packages delivered by FedEx packages will be returned to the sender if they are unable to be delivered to the address indicated on the shipping label, in keeping with FedEx policy.
Personal items should be delivered to home addresses or post office boxes, and not to university addresses.
