    UT Southwestern Medical Center has two post offices to serve the personal mailing needs of faculty, staff, and students.

    Business Reply Mail (BRM) service enables mailers to receive first class mail by paying postage on the mail which is returned. The permit holder guarantees payment of the appropriate first-class postage plus a handling charge per piece. BRM should not be sent to any foreign countries. All BRM should be bundled separately from regular outgoing mail.

    Note: The U.S. Postal Service has strict preparation requirements for Business Reply Mail. The Mail Services Manager should be contacted for proper format before printing or reprinting business reply envelopes or cards.

  • Interdepartmental Mail

    Interdepartmental mail (loose and/or enveloped memorandums, reprints, publications, and miscellaneous correspondence) is for delivery to an addressee on campus. To provide accurate and timely delivery, Mail Services requires that the intended recipient’s full name and exact mail code be legible on the envelope.

    Requirements

    Verification of Delivery

    For verification of delivery of interdepartmental campus mail, use the Accountable Mail Return Receipt. Much like certified mail, this receipt allows you to verify the mail has been delivered to the recipient (or their designee) by obtaining the signature and time of delivery.

    To use an Accountable Mail Return Receipt:

    • Order a supply of orange Return Receipt cards by calling Mail Services at x50974.
    • Complete Sections 1 and 2 on the front, and include your return address on the back of each orange card.
    • Complete a paper IDR with $2.50 for each mail piece.
    • Give all items to your Mail Services clerk.
    • Mail Services will expedite the return of the completed receipts to you with the signature and time of delivery for your records.

    Pickup & Delivery Schedules

    • Begins at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., Monday – Friday
    • Outbound U.S. Mail (including Registered, Certified, and Express) is also collected for delivery to the U.S. Post Office by 5 p.m. same day.
  • Outgoing Mail

    Basic Requirements

    • An official UT Southwestern Medical Center envelope
    • A delivery address in all CAPITAL letters
    • A return address (preprinted on official envelopes)
    • A two-letter state abbreviation in CAPITAL letters
    • The ZIP code
    • The five-digit ZIP+4 suffix (if known)
    • Use of common abbreviations (e.g., Ave, Blvd, St, etc.)
    • No punctuation

    Bundling Requirements

    • All pieces must face the same direction.
    • Each bundle must be separated by departmental account number with a UTSW Mail Ticket Form on top. (Save the PDF to your desktop before filling it out.)
    • The type of mailing service must be checked on the postage ticket.
    • Complete the Special Instructions section if a service is required that is not indicated on the postage ticket.
    • Items will be mailed first class and billed accordingly if the type of service is not specified.
