Besides UWF Postal Services’ Campus Mail and U.S. Mail Services the UWF Courier Service and other expedited mail services are available to UWF departments and offices. The following should help in determining which service to use and how to get more information about using them. Your office or departmental return address is required on all Courier Mail.
The UWF Courier System is operated by UWF Postal Services free of charge and can be contacted by calling 474-2436. Details and questions concerning UWF Courier operations, the schedule, and exact pickup and delivery stops should be addressed with UWF Postal Services. The UWF Courier departs UWF at 8:00 AM on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week.
UWF departments, offices and organizations can utilize the UWF Courier Service by printing the off-campus address and the words “UWF COURIER” boldly on the item to be delivered, placing it in the Campus Mail System or dropping it off at the UWF Post Office service window in the University Commons, Building 22. The UWF Courier can carry items that one person can handle and place in a minivan, and is intended for intercampus pickup and delivery of items between the UWF Main Campus in Pensacola and various off-campus locations and sites. It is not intended for delivery of heavy furniture and equipment items. Locations change occasionally so check with UWF Postal Services if you have a question. Current locations and sites include:
