The University Mail Room provides mailboxes for faculty, staff and students. Undergraduate students are entitled to a mailbox, provided one is available. Preference will be given to students enrolled in seven or more hours. The University Mail Room is not part of the U.S. Postal Service. The purpose of the University Mail Room is solely to serve the communication needs of the campus community; it is not intended as a full-service post office. Although stamps may be purchased at the Mail Room, specialized postal services such as money orders, packages, or certified mail can only be obtained at the U.S. Post Offices in Florence.
Undergraduate students enrolled in seven or more semester hours have a private UNA mailbox. The Mail Room is located on the first floor of the Guillot University Center (GUC) next to the bookstore and Office of Student Engagement. Not only can you receive mail and packages, you can send them as well. The Mail Room window is open from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
