Personal Mail

Personal Mail Policy

Yale’s mail system is designated for official University business only, and is not available for delivery of personal letters and packages.

Yale Policy & Procedures:

604.3 Personal Mail and Packages
The University is not responsible for loss or damage to personal packages or mail addressed to any of its employees at a Yale facility. In order to avoid a possible financial loss, it is strongly recommended that such items be mailed or shipped to the employee’s home or to a friend or relative.

604.4 Use of Campus Mail
Employees may not use the Campus Mail services for personal mail or mail of non-Yale organizations. This service is staffed to handle only official University correspondence; its use for other purposes slows down delivery of official mail. While the Campus Mail staff does not ordinarily inspect individual letters and packages for conformance to this policy, they are required to call to the attention of proper authorities for any apparent violations.

Student Packages

According to the Student Handbook: In order to receive mail on campus, all students are required by postal regulations to have and use a post office box for all mail coming to them at Yale.
