Welcome to Postal Services
Postal Services is open for business at both of our locations, in the north side of the Houchens Bldg and at our HSC location in the Commons Bldg.
The Postal Service provides mailing services for the university community.
There are three units within Postal Services:
- Belknap Campus Center, located at the north entrance of the Houchens Building.
- Health Science Center, located in the Commons Building at Abraham Flexner Way.
- Permit Mail Center, located within the Belknap Campus Center.
Packages can be weighed and small stamp purchases can be made at both Postal Services locations. This service is available Monday - Friday during regular counter service hours. We accept Cardinal Cash. We are a cash-only operation with the exception of the Cardinal Cash purchases.
