Do not send personal packages to or from the office

With the holiday shopping season upon us, please remember that UC policy prohibits both mailing and receiving personal packages at our offices.

UC mail services are for official university business only and draw on limited university funding. For security reasons, all deliveries, regardless of sender or type, must be processed through our mailroom, consuming staff time and university resources. In addition, UC cannot assume liability for personal deliveries.

This prohibition applies to all deliveries, via the U.S. Postal Service, FedEx, UPS or any other courier.

Delivery alternatives

We understand that you cannot always be home to receive a package. Here are some alternatives to having deliveries sent to our offices:

  1. Make arrangements with family or neighbors to receive your package while you are at work.
  2. Alternative arrangements for receiving and sending your packages can be made with these downtown Oakland vendors:
  • Fed Ex Office Print & Ship Center, 500 12th St, Oakland, CA
  • Post Office, 1301 Clay St, Oakland, CA
  • The UPS Store, 1714 Franklin St, Oakland, CA
  • Amazon, 4193 Piedmont Ave, Oakland, CA
  1. Many of the delivery services now offer alternative delivery options if you have a tracking number:
