The University Mail Service deals with all incoming, outgoing and internal mail, delivered to, and sent by the University.

The Mail Room is situated in Maxwell Well.

Our aim is to provide timely and accurate handling and distribution of all incoming, internal and outgoing mail, offering advice on the best service to use, as and when requested.

If you have an enquiry about mail collections and deliveries within your building please see your Building Manager or Handyperson in the first instance. Further enquiries can be made direct to the mail room on 0161 295 3909

Our hours of service are Monday to Friday 8.00am – 5pm (last collection).

To report any problems, or to arrange for us to provide you with additional services, please contact our Operational Team Leader Colin Turton on 0161 295 5023.

Please note that colleagues are asked to refrain from arranging personal deliveries of packets and parcels to their University addresses, particularly in the busy run-up to Christmas. Please have Christmas parcels delivered to home. 

The Mailroom and Reception areas are unable to take deliveries from couriers who need to deliver a parcel to a member of staff, using a University address.  This can be very difficult, given the size of our buildings and the number of staff on site.

Unfortunately the University cannot be held responsible for any personal items that have gone missing in transit.
