Shipping Services

  • UIU students may use the mailroom to drop off package with pre-paid label for the following carriers: UPS, FedEx, and USPS.

Packages and letter mail are held for two weeks, with the exception of the extended University breaks. After the two-week mark is met, all items are considered abandoned and forwarded, returned to sender, or disposed of. Packages that arrive through UPS or FedEx are subject to our 2 week package hold policy. Only Ground Advantage or Priority USPS mail can be forwarded. Other USPS services, UPS, and FedEx packages are shipped upon request, but the student will be responsible for all associated costs. Please be advised.

Mail Services staff will attempt to identify mail or parcels with incorrect or incomplete names and addresses, but delivery may be delayed. Attempts to identify mail or parcels may include opening, however any contents of opened mail or parcels will be kept in strict confidentiality. If it is not possible to identify the intended recipient, the parcel will be kept for 2 weeks. After that time unclaimed or unidentifiable items will then be returned to the sender, or discarded if returning is not possible.

Upper Iowa University does not assume responsibility for incoming or outgoing mail/packages that are lost, stolen, or damaged during shipment or while in storage. Therefore, please make sure all valuable items are insured and trackable when being sent from UIU and received at UIU.
