Package pick-up

All packages — FedEx, FedEx Express, UPS, and USPS — should be brought to the 102 Tower mailroom on the first floor and placed in the appropriate bin. Drivers cannot pickup packages at your desk as each floor has restricted access.

FedEx Ground, UPS, and USPS collect packages daily. However, if you need to send a package immediately, you can schedule pickup through FedEx Ground or FedEx Express online or by phone and then bring those items to the mailroom for pickup.

Yes. Leadership requires that university photo ID badges are worn and clearly visible, with no pins or stickers attached, except those approved by the U Card Office, HR, Security, or the Environment of Care committee. Please review the Badge & Tailgating policy for complete details.

Appropriate business attire is required when in 102 Tower and when meeting off-site with colleagues for business purposes.
