The Baruch College Faculty Handbook

Mail

Last updated on 10/07/2002


Outgoing Mail
The Baruch College mailroom regularly processes the faculty's professional mail. To be processed, such mail must be in Baruch envelopes and have the name and box number of the sender as part of the return address. Without this information the mailroom will not process your mail.

Packages also must be in Baruch envelopes. Overseas packages weighing more than 1 lb. must have a custom's form attached. The form can be obtained from the mailroom or any post office (PS Form 2976-Declaration of Content). This form must be signed by the sender while standing in front of the US Postal Clerk, who is responsible for verifying the identity of the individual sending the package.

Any mail that requires postage of more than $10 will not be processed without the approval of a Chair and the Dean. This is true of all Express mail as well. Express mail is expensive, so we are all asked to minimize its use by sending our mail in a timely fashion.

The Baruch Mail Center lacks sufficient personnel to carry individual letters or packages to the post office. Express mail, Certified, Registered, or any mail weighing one pound or more, must be delivered to the post office by the sender or a department employee. The US Postal Clerk will be responsible for verifying the identity of an individual sending any package of more than 1 lb.

Personal mail will be processed only if bears the correct postage. If the personal mail lacks postage the mailroom will attempt to return it to the sender. If there is no return address the mailroom will hold the mail for six months before discarding it.

Campus Address
For mail purposes, campuses addresses follow this pattern: [Name]
[Department]
[Box number]*
Baruch College
One Bernard Baruch Way
New York, NY 10010

* Box numbers include the letter designation of the building in which the office is located (for list of buildings see the Introduction), followed by a room number (e.g. Box B8-250 means building B, which is the Vertical Campus, 8th floor, Room 250). In many cases the correct box number is the room number of the departmental office. (See the online directory for the box numbers of members of the faculty, staff, and administration.)
