How to Edit Mail Services Hours for Amazon Deliveries
The Mail Services customer service area is only open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m in the UC. We are open until 5 p.m. for deliveries on weekdays. The office is closed on weekends and holidays. For the safety of your Amazon package deliveries make sure to specify our open hours.
Our office will be closed for Veterans Day on Nov. 10, the Thanksgiving Break, starting at noon on Nov. 22 through Nov. 26, and over the Winter Break, Dec. 21, 2023, through Jan.1, 2024.
We will a be open from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, Nov. 22, just prior to the holiday break.
If you order through Amazon, make sure that you specify when our open hours are. We have had multiple incidents of Amazon not being told when Mail Services is open, which results in packages being left out in the open and drastically increases the chances for theft and loss.
To start with, fill up your cart with whatever you're getting. Once it's time, proceed to the checkout.
When editing your address, include the college address and your UC box number. Then below 'City' and above 'Use this address' click 'Add preferences, notes, access codes and more.'
Make sure that 'Property Type' is set to 'Business' and then go into the options. We are open for deliveries from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and closed on the weekends.
If you really want to go the extra mile, you can also specify that they'll be leaving your package with the Mailroom. This is a nice thing that makes their job easier but isn't necessary.
Then just hit 'Make this my default address' and finally 'Use this address.' Congratulations! You've ensured that the package will be delivered when we're here to receive it and made sure that there is an unbroken chain of custody to keep it from getting lost!
Additionally, please keep in mind that the U.S. Post Office is open on Saturdays while we are not. This means that a package's tracking information may show that it was delivered on a Saturday, but will not be available for pickup until the following Monday morning.
