Package Preparation

  • Please be aware, all incoming and outgoing packages, excluding resident student mail, are property of University of Detroit Mercy. Personal property should never be shipped through the University's Mail Service.

  • All packages are to be prepared by the sender according to the shipping company's specifications. Packages are to be wrapped in a carrier approved box or shipping envelope and addressed according to the carrier's specifications. Incomplete processing by the sender will cause the package to be refused or returned to the department sending it.


  • Shipping supplies such as large boxes, are the responsibility of the sending department. If you need any UPS or USPS supplies, please contact Mail Services.
