The Georgia Tech Post Office is here for all of your postal needs. You can send packages, buy mail supplies, and more. Students living on campus can find their mailbox at the Post Office, as well as the package pick-up window for picking up parcels. The Georgia Tech Post Office provides mail and parcel pick-up services for students receiving packages from the United States Postal Service (USPS), United Parcel Service (UPS), Federal Express, Airborne and DHL. Outgoing shipping services are provided by the United States Postal Service (USPS) only. For customer services inquiries, please contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To further alleviate congestion, the Postal Services Team asks that students wait until they have received an email telling them a package has arrived before visiting the Post Office. Students should also remember to bring their BuzzCard or any state issued ID when picking up a package. We're glad to have you back, Jackets!
For questions about package pickup or our other mail services, please contact the Post Office at email@example.com, or call (404) 894-4560.

CURRENT FACULTY/STAFF MAIL SERVICE |
Due to the variability of departmental operating hours and much of campus working remotely, campus mail delivery has been suspended until further notice. During this time, faculty and staff who have critical time-sensitive material can pick up mail and packages Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. from the Mail Processing Center (MPC), located at 711 Marietta Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30332 (next door to Business Services). If you have parcels en route to your campus address, please redirect them to the MPC.
FACULTY/STAFF PICK-UP PROCESS |
Please call ahead at 404-385-4174 before picking up your parcels. Mail and packages will be delivered to recipients outside the entrance to the MPC to limit contact. Those experiencing fever, cough, or shortness of breath should avoid visiting the MPC. If you are feeling ill, please follow the guidance provided at http://health.gatech.edu/coronavirus/decision-tree.
LIVE SPECIMENS NOT ACCEPTED |
Due to modified operations, perishables and live specimens (including but not limited to live animals, including all birds and hatching or embryonated eggs) cannot be accepted at this time.
P-CARD PURCHASES |
A reminder to P-card holders: During this time of modified campus operations, the Department of Administrative Services is allowing card holders to ship P-card purchases to home addresses as needed. Cardholders will need supervisor approval to ship to an address other than Georgia Tech. This approval may be granted per transaction or for the duration of the telework period. This is only for purchases made on a P-card that are being sent directly from the vendor to a non-Georgia Tech address. For more information, please contact the P-card administrator for your department, or Business Services.
BUILDING MANAGERS |
As many campus buildings remain closed, building managers can arrange to have packages, usually delivered to individual campus buildings, redirected to the MPC. This should be coordinated with Georgia Tech Postal Services by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help the Postal Services team, building managers are encouraged to add signage to facility entrances advising delivery couriers to redirect packages to the Mail Processing Center located at 711 Marietta Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30332. Click here to access an 8.5 x11 sign that is available for you to use.
RESIDENTIAL MAIL |
With the campus change in operations, we are requesting that all packages be picked up and mailboxes cleared prior to departing campus. As the Student Center will officially close this summer until late 2022 to undergo renovations, it is imperative that all mail and packages are collected from the Student Center Post Office location. We will be open to serve you in our temporary location beginning in late Summer 2020.
Residents should also:
- Forward your mail to your place of residence through BuzzPort (click here for instructions)
- Redirect any auto-ship subscriptions – specifically perishables and medications
- Coordinate with carriers to have packages redirected to your place of residence
For questions about this request or postal services during the campus closure, please contact the Postal Services team at email@example.com.
KEEPING OUR SPACE SAFE |
Georgia Tech Postal Services has enhanced its daily cleaning of both the Student Center and Mail Processing Center facilities, including transactional counters where student packages are delivered and retail services are rendered. Additionally, all staff working behind the scenes processing mail/packages and delivering services to customers perform these tasks wearing gloves.
During this time, we encourage everyone to practice preventative measures to protect themselves and everyone around them. Follow all guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Georgia Department of Public Health, including recommendations on personal and business travel to avoid increasing your risk and that to others. You can also visit Georgia Tech's Monitoring Coronavirus website for up-to-date information on modified operations on campus.
