Mail and Document Services provides mail services for faculty,
staff, and students at the New Brunswick/Piscataway campuses. Services
include handling intracampus and U.S. postal mail and operating post
office facilities-Busch Post Office (BPO)-Busch Campus Center; Cook

College Center; Livingston Post Office (LPO)- Tillett Hall; and Rutgers
Post Office (RPO)-Records Hall-on each campus. Mail and Document
Services may be contacted at 732/445-3212.
All post office
sites offer the following basic postal functions: stamp sales,
processing of outbound domestic letters and packages, and placing
incoming student mail in the assigned mailbox. The sites also provide
extended postal functions including money order sales, processing
outbound special-service items (certified, registered, and insured
services), and processing outbound international letters and packages.
Postal services are available Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to
4:00 p.m. throughout the year.
Mailbox numbers are
assigned according to school of affiliation, not residence. With the
exception of the University Center at 30 Easton Avenue, dormitory
residents receive incoming mail at their assigned mailbox. U.S. postal
mail addressed to 30 Easton Avenue is delivered and "boxed" at that
location, while intracampus mail for these students is placed in the
assigned Rutgers Post Office (RPO) mailbox. Students arriving for the
fall term will receive notification of their mailbox number and the
combination number at their home address. Students registering late for
the fall term, or registering for the spring term, should check the
appropriate post office to ensure that a mailbox number has been
assigned. If you lose or forget your mailbox combination, please visit
your assigned post office for assistance. For security reasons, you
will be asked to provide appropriate identification. You also may find
help at the following web site: http://mds.rutgers.edu (select student information).
