Mail/Shipping

Mail services on campus

Texas A&M processes more than 15 million pieces of mail annually. Within Mays, we have an intra-college mail system, too.

Mays Internal Mail Service 

Every unit has an an
open access area with employee mailboxes.

Every effort is taken to secure and
monitor these areas during office hours. Please note, however, that these areas are not
100 percent secure.

Use sealed envelopes for confidential
correspondence.

Contact your departmental support
staff if you are expecting any unusually large boxes/shipments of
equipment that will not fit in the employee mail room or if you have packages
that need to be stored in a secured area.

The Office of the Dean delivers mail among departments once a day.

Use inter-department envelopes, though other envelopes may be used. Materials should be placed in the envelope labeled
with the recipient name and department/room number and placed in the ‘Internal
Mail’ box in your unit’s mailroom.

Off Campus Mail Service

A&M’s Mail Services also delivers outgoing mail to the US Postal Service.

Business correspondence

Official business correspondence must be on the appropriate unit stationery. See your unit’s support staff to obtain it.

Mail must have the proper return address for the unit as this is how the unit is charged by A&M Mail Services. Using this service for personal mail is forbidden.

Using A&M Mail Service for personal mail even though properly stamped by the sender is discouraged.

Shipping

Proper return addressing

At A&M, we have our physical address (XXX Wehner Building), plus a stand-in for a street address which is composed of your mailstop number followed by the letters “TAMU”. A shipping service is more interested in the physical address, while the US Postal Service requires the street address.

Preprinted unit stationery has the appropriate information for addressing. To add it to other packaging, follow this format:

Name
Department name
Mays Business School
Texas A&M University
XXX Wehner Building
XXXX TAMU
College Station TX 77843-XXXX

Triple X is for the physical office number; Four X’s represent your mailstop number and appear twice. Once with “TAMU” and once following the 77843 zip code.
