Inter-campus Mail

  • To save money and the environment, the school re-uses envelopes for inter-campus mail as often as possible.  Cross out the original address with a black marker and write the adressee’s name and location or you can use a label. All off campus mail and mail to students should go in a new envelope.
  • For a limited time, Central Printing has free manila envelopes available for inter-campus use only. They have the SUNY Potsdam logo printed in black.  They cannot be used for mail going off campus.
  • The mailroom does not have a list of where employees are located.  Inter-campus mail requires the addressee’s name, building, and room number on it.  Inter-campus mail (including to student’s Barrington Address) does not require the city, state, and zip code.

 

Sorting Mail

  • Department mail should be sorted for when the mailroom picks it up.  Off-campus mail should be separated and rubberbanded in groups (one group that needs postage, one group that already has postage).  On-campus mail should also be rubber banded together.
  • Mail does not need to be sealed unless it contains sensitive material because the mailroom can seal it for you.  Some examples of sensitive materials are college acceptance/declination materials, hiring decisions, and grade information.
  • If a mailing has over 100 envelopes, it should be sorted by zip code.
