The main UT campus has converted from using ‘1 University Station’ to using the physical street address of each and every building.
This change made the process of delivering all of UT mail a more efficient operation for the Mail Services Team. In addition, using the physical street address allows departments on campus to have one address to use for both United States Postal Service mail, UPS, and FedEx package shipments. The conversion in addressing also allowed for the implementation of the 9-1-1 emergency management system on campus — which they could not do when using the virtual address of ‘1 University Station.’
Other noteworthy details:
- For the first time each building on 78712 Campus has an official USPS address that matches the City of Austin approved address
- Each Department will have a unique +4 in addition to the 78712 zip-code that allows for more accurate deliveries
- UPS/FedEx will still need to know your room / suite / floor number in order to deliver packages directly to your desk-top
- More information about obtaining new mailcodes is available on this website
