Welcome to Mail Services

Boston University Mail Services handles and distributes the University’s incoming, outgoing, and interdepartmental mail on the Charles River Campus and the BU Medical School Campus. Mail is picked up from and delivered to all departments once a day. Mail Services is responsible for proper management of the University’s metered mail and postal permits and also administers express shipments through Federal Express.

You may call to request pickup or delivery of interoffice (yellow) envelopes at no charge. For those of you who are willing to recycle, please send any interoffice envelopes that you can share with the University community to the Mail Services office 120 Ashford St. on the  Charles River Campus, 617-353-2156. These envelopes will then be recycled back into the mail stream for reuse.

University Bulk Mail ceased operations on 6/30/2019. Please contact Patrick Ring, Director Mail Services at
617-353-6680 or pring123@bu.edu with questions.

Mail Services does not manage Residential Mail for students living in University housing. Student mail is delivered by the USPS and is then distributed by BU Housing/Residential Safety. Students who have any mail questions on the Charles River Campus should contact 617-353-2307.

Boston University faculty and staff should refrain from having personal mail or packages delivered to them at the University.  Such articles should be directed to home or other non-Boston University addresses for delivery.
