Always mark your items with your return address and mail them so that the return address and postmark are consistent.
Address the package properly (see details at right).
Do not use “UC” or “University of Cincinnati” in the address.
Doing so will misdirect and delay delivery.
Do not send cash or gift cards through the mail.
Do not send items that would create a bulge, lump or stain or items that could leak liquid or powder. If sending a liquid or powder is essential, pack the item in a spill-proof, sealed bag to contain any spill.

When shipping battery-operated devices, remove the batteries before shipping.
Consult the shipper before sending any potentially hazardous materials such as flammable liquid, chemicals, or pressurized canisters.
