Mail Services

Drake Postal Operations is responsible for the daily processing, sorting, and distribution of USPS mail for faculty and staff. Whether you're sending and receiving mail across campus or across the globe, our goal is to get it there efficiently and economically.

  • We process mail for over 1,700 faculty and staff members.
  • In the last year, we have processed and distributed approximately 30,000 pounds of mail to faculty and staff.
  • We send out an estimated 300,000 pieces of mail per year.
  • We make over 53 mail stops in and around campus on an average day. Watch for our blue mail bags!
