Student Desk Top Mail and Small Parcel Delivery Policy Update

All student desk top mail, defined as metered or stamped mail, is delivered by University Mailing Services (UMS) to residential halls the same day it is received from the United States Postal Service (exception below).  Once desk top mail has been tendered to each residence hall, residential hall personnel sort and distribute the desk top mail to students residing at the hall.  University Mailing Service does not sort and/or distribute desk top mail directly to students.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Exception to same day resident hall delivery:  

At Residential Life’s written request, UMS will hold all desk top mail during holiday breaks.  Mail delivery services will resume on the date specified in the written request by Residential Life personnel. 

Small package parcels, defined as packages that are sent using a tracking number, will be delivered to each respective residence hall.  In the event that the residence halls are not receiving small package parcels, provisions can be made for the student to pick up the package at UMS if the tracking number is provided, photo identification is shown at the time of package pick up, and if the package contains one or more of the following exceptions:

  • Package contains medicine
  • Passports
  • Undeliverable as addressed
  • Time sensitive materials (Examples: perishables, credit cards, plane tickets, I-9’s)
  • Keys                                                                                                       

Please note the policy below regarding our pricing estimates:

All DHL, FedEx, and UPS shipping prices quoted are estimates only and do not include additional fees and/or Customs Duty Fees.  Also, it is our policy that if a specific domestic or international service is not selected on the OSU/UMS shipping instructions form, then we will automatically send the package by the least expensive but fastest method due to our negotiated contracts with the carriers.  As always, thank you for visiting us with all of your shipping needs.  We strive to make your shipping experiences simple and easy from pricing to packaging to tracking.  Please call us at 405-744-5385 or email us at UMS@okstate.edu with any questions that you may have.

PROTIP:

Please remember when selecting which shipping service you would like to use, only business days are counted when getting estimates online or in office.  Selecting Saturday service will expedite your package if trying to send a package needed by a Saturday, for an additional charge.  Please contact us with any questions that you may have to avoid later than expected deliveries.  Thank you for visiting the UMS webpage and for coming to us with your shipping needs!
