University Mail Service

The University Mail Service (UMS) serves the UIC community by picking up, sorting, and delivering campus mail; receiving and delivering U.S. Mail; providing a full-service letter shop for outgoing mail. Campus and U.S. mail is delivered and picked up from most departmental mailbox locations twice daily. Deliveries begin by 8:00 a.m. and are completed by 3:30 p.m. Campus mail, stamped mail, and metered mail should be separated accordingly in the pickup location. Three-digit mail codes have been assigned to all UIC units/departments and function as internal zip codes.  As part of the unit’s official campus address, the mail code must be used in campus mail and on return addresses on U.S. Mail.

Mail can be sent to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) campus at no charge via the intercampus shuttle, which operates daily and provides next-day delivery, weather permitting.  UIUC mail can be placed with other mail in the departmental pickup location.  Individually addressed mail to the University of Illinois at Springfield (UIS) or to the UIC Rockford, Peoria, and Quad Cities campuses must be posted and sent through the U.S. Mail. Mass mailings to these campuses are sent in bulk for local distribution

More detailed information about using the UMS can be found on their website.
