Addresses for Campus Buildings
In the fall 2001 UMD had street addresses posted on buildings.
The signs display the building name and address and are visible
from the street. The goal is a safer, more easily navigated
campus. This provides effective emergency response
times and makes it easier for first-time visitors to find their way

Outgoing Mail Preparation
All outgoing University mail needing to be stamped must have an authorization slip attached. If you want to know the cost of your mailing, send
two authorization slips. The duplicate will be returned to you with the cost noted. Order Authorization Slips from the UMD Print Shop.
The Mail Room has an obligation, and will exercise that obligation, to send the mail within the most efficient and cost saving manner possible.
The Mail Room personnel may ask you to send mail in a different rate/manner in order to realize a savings to the department and the University as
a whole. If you have any questions please call the mail room at 8287.
Mail Room can only deliver the mail correctly when a complete address for each campus department or individual is included. Please give a complete
address when filling in purchasing documents or when giving information for mail to you. In addition, outgoing mail should have a University,
department address, city, state, and zip +4.
We are unable to determine who has been added or deleted from faculty/staff
without notification. The form for Campus Address Changes can be obtained
from the Mail Room to be used when faculty/staff changes occur or you
may download a PDF version
