All correspondence from the department will be sent to your UW email account. It is important that you check your account regularly, or have it forwarded to an account you do use. Important graduate student information will be sent only to your UW email account.


The department has a fax machine located in More 206 for official university business only. Instructions for sending a fax are located near the fax machine. An authorization code is required to send a long distance fax. If you are sending a long distance fax, see your faculty adviser to obtain the authorization code. If you are expecting a fax, please ask the sender to be sure your name is on it. If a fax arrives for you, you will be notified to pick it up in the Main Office. If you are expecting a fax and you have not been notified, check at the reception desk in the Main Office.

Mail & shipments

Incoming mail & shipments

University Mailing Services delivers incoming mail once a day, (usually by 10:00AM), to the Main Office in More Hall. Mail is then distributed to faculty, staff and student mailboxes, typically before noon. Graduate student mailboxes are located in More Hall in the first floor hallway. Please check your mailbox regularly. Also, please remember that mailboxes are not secure. If you have a package delivered that is too large for your mailbox, you will receive notification to pick it up in the Main Office. Please do so at your earliest convenience, as space to store packages in the Main Office is limited.

Outgoing mail

Mailing Services picks up the outgoing mail at the same time the incoming mail is dropped off (usually by 10:00 AM).


The department has a contract with Fed-Ex. To place a shipment via Fed-Ex, bring your package with the following information to the reception desk in the Main Office by 3:00PM in order to be shipped that day: Name of company or agency, contact person, complete delivery address (must be a street address – not PO Box), recipients phone number, budget number, package dimensions and weight, and contents.
