Updates on the campus response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Campus Postal Services Temporarily Disrupted

Campus Community Should Expect Delays in Delivery Through August 20

Atlanta, GA

Update as of 8/16/21

Due to an electrical fire on August 12 at the Mail Processing Center, campus mail service will continue to be limited through August 20. This affects mail service for students with mail folders at the Post Office and campus mail delivery to departments.

Students should not come to the Post Office to pick up their mail unless they have received an email notification from the Postal Services team. Delivery delays are expected while mail processing capacity resumes. Students are encouraged to redirect important items currently in route, if possible. If you are able to, consider purchasing items locally as this disruption will delay package delivery. To help our team return to normal operations, students should not send large packages to their campus address at this time.

Campus mail delivery to departments will be delayed through Friday, August 20. Critical campus deliveries will resume today. USPS deliveries to campus will resume on August 17 and delays are expected as the Post Office processes the incoming mail that was delayed due to the disruption.

Outgoing mail metering services for more than 200 pieces remain suspended. Please contact the Post Office for mail metering services and specific postal needs while we resume service.

The Postal Services team will continue to provide updates as delivery services resume at postoffice.gatech.edu
