Centralized Afternoon Pick-up Service (CAPS)

Campus Mail Service has strategically placed eight drop boxes across campus. This service allows departments the opportunity to place outgoing mail items in one of the CAPS drop boxes and have it processed the same day. CAPS drobox pick-ups are made between the hours of 2:00 & 3:00 P.M. Items placed in CAPS drop boxes after the daily collection will be processed the following business day.
