Campus Mail provides a service to the entire community; please help us by using campus mail properly.

How to have suppliers address the packages they ship to you.  Please instruct whoever is shipping the package to address it as follows:

Recipients’ Name
Department Name
Wellesley College
106 Central Street

Wellesley College Mail Services strongly discourages personal packages being shipped to your office on campus. Please help the Mail Services and Distribution Center staff reduce delivery volumes by not using the campus for your personal mail and package business. Thank you for understanding.

Important Information

INTERDEPARTMENTAL AND CAMPUS MAIL:  All interdepartmental mail should include a department name or student’s unit number. If departments or unit numbers are not included on your campus mail piece, it will be delayed until we can assign the correct department or unit number to the mail piece.

INTERNATIONAL MAIL: When sending international mailings, please seal all envelopes and separate the international mail from the domestic mail. 

OVERNIGHT MAIL: FedEx overnight charges for most departments are processed for payment by Mail Services. Please be sure to include your full Worktag on the internal reference line of your outgoing air bills.

BUDGET SLIPS: Please include both department and names, written legibly. Also include the correct full Worktag. 

Special Mailings

Departments using the Wellesley College mailing permits should notify Fran Adams of the estimated postage one week in advance of mailing (this will assure proper postage in our mailing account).

The mail piece should be checked by Mail Services/Printing Services to assure proper design and address placement.

If you are working with a mail house, please be sure to request a copy of the 3602 (mailing statement) be forwarded to Mail Services.

Please email Fran Adams with the Worktag that should be billed and the planned mailing date. Please include the full Worktag and a contact name.


For any additional questions or concerns regarding administrative mailing, visit our FAQs page or contact Fran Adams at fadams@wellesley.edu or at x3564 or x2289. We are happy to work with your department to discuss possible shipping services that will save additional postal budget dollars.
