Solely operated by the University, the primary function
of the University Postal Service is to provide mail
service for University administration, faculty, staff
and students of the Columbia campus.
The mission of the University of South Carolina
Postal Service is to provide a professional and
efficient mail service to the university community using
existing and emerging technology. Our unit is
responsible for the delivery, collection and processing
of all intra-campus, inter-agency and U. S. Postal
Service mail to all USC academic, administrative offices
and mail service to all student mail boxes at the
Student Mail Center.
Our unit also serves as an intermediary between the U.
S. Postal Service through its operation of a USPS
contract station at 1600 Hampton Street and a shipping
and mailing service at the Student Mail Center.
MAIL SOLICITATION (Policy)
The University of South Carolina Post Office is
responsible for providing services for USC faculty,
staff, and students for official University business only. Mail determined to be of
personal nature (such as checks, bank statements,
utility bills, personal packages) will be returned to
the sender. The only exception to the policy is mail
service to on-campus resident students whose mail is
delivered to their assigned student mail box.
University Intra-campus Mail Service cannot be
used by faculty, staff, students, or outside
businesses or organizations for campaign notices,
advertising, solicitation, or for any purpose that is
not determined official University business. No USC
mailing list will be available for use other than for
official University of South Carolina business. (Student
organizations may be contacted through the Office of
Student Government & Student Organizations.)
