Campus Mail Envelopes
When using Campus Mail envelopes to send correspondence, make sure all previous addresses have been marked out to ensure proper delivery. The address you are sending to should always appear on the last line below the previous address. Campus Mail Services encourages the use of reusable Campus Mail envelopes. Despite our efforts to keep the campus supplied with these envelopes, the demand is greater than our supply. If you have an excess supply of reusable envelopes, please send them to the Mail Services at +0701 so we may put them back into circulation. Label your rubber banded bundle of empty envelopes as "Empty Envelopes for Reuse" and be sure that all envelopes are empty before returning them to Mail Services.
How to Address Intra-Campus Mail
Mail sent from one department to another should be addressed with a name or department and the zip+4 of the addressee. If you are sending mail to an individual in a particular department, be sure to include the addressee's first and last name as well as their assigned zip+4. See the following address samples:
Department Zip + 4
Engineering Dean's Office
Department Zip + 4
Campus Mail Service delivers to assigned zip+4 locations only. A listing of all campus zip+4 locations can be found in the University of Akron Campus Directory or by clicking HERE.
Mail that is vaguely addressed could delay delivery or result in having the mail piece returned to you for a deliverable address. Complete sender information is also important in the event that the mail is not deliverable as addressed. When using a Campus Mail envelope, be sure all previous addresses have been marked out to ensure proper delivery. The address you are mailing to should always appear on the last line below the previous address on a Campus Mail Envelope. When you are not using Campus Mail envelopes for Campus Mail, please do not include a city, state and zip code line in the address. This will help identify your mail as Campus Mail and avoid confusion with USPS mail. A complete name or department and their zip+4 is all that is needed to insure proper delivery.

The memo should be done in writing and include the following:
- All names of moving Individuals
