Department mailboxes are in room 5224, fifth floor, McGill Hall. Outgoing mail is collected at noon and at 4:30 p.m. Incoming mail is collected and distributed at noon. There is no service on holidays.

Department mailboxes include personal boxes, those assigned to some research labs and current psychology courses, and one for use by the department-sponsored PsiChi Club. Check your appropriate mailbox frequently as students, faculty, and staff often leave messages there.

There are three boxes labeled On-Campus, Off-Campus (Stamped), and Off-Campus (Index); please put your mail in the appropriate box. 


Shipping labels are located on the top shelf of the Copy Room. The FedEx forms reflect our department account number as well as some standard departmental information. The international form is a full page, while the standard forms are half sheets.

There is a FedEx mailbox located on the east side of the 1st floor of McGill where you may deposit your FedEx packages. If you are using a different shipping provider, you must take your package to Mail Services or request a pickup. If your FedEx package does not fit into the FedEx mailbox ,you may take your package to Mail Services or call the number on the front page of the FedEx form to arrange for pick up.


All packages are delivered to Trade Street, UCSD's Receiving Department where all incoming packages are required to go per UCSD policy. Here, they will protect your packages from damages, shortages, and deal with any freight claims. Packages delivered to Trade Street will take about 24 hours to be delivered to the department. 

If you do overnight delivery it will be delivered directly to the Department. However you have to be accurate in the address if not, it will be rerouted to Trade Street to figure out where it goes.

The email from your shipping provider that your package has arrived means that it has been received by Trade Street. Your package is not at the department until you get an email from the front desk stating that your package is at the front office.  Please try to pick up packages in a timely manner.
