Helpful Mailing Hints for Students

  • Have your Cougar ID ready when picking up a package.
  • Use full name (no nickname), Residence Hall and personal mailbox number (PMB) for your campus mailing address.
  • Look for an email notification from Delivery Services for packages assigned a tracking number or too large to fit into your mailbox.
  • Check your mailbox frequently so it does not overflow.
  • Drop any mail not addressed to you into outgoing mail for delivery. Do not open it.
  • Provide tracking number, carrier used and/or specific details when searching for a package.
  • Packages can be shipped to campus one week before school starts.
  • Call us at 713.743.5829 or email postserv@central.uh.edufor assistance.
  • NEVER REQUEST THAT CASH BE SENT TO YOU. Delivery Services is not responsible for cash sent through USPS mail or any overnight service.
