Document Solutions utilizes a Campus Tracking System (CTS) for incoming U.S. Postal Services (USPS) packages or parcels received by UT Mail Services at its 78712 ZIP code location and for packages received by Campus Distribution Services.
CTS is designed to track the ongoing status of barcoded packages or parcels:
- Provides chain-of-custody information.
- Tracks incoming U.S. Postal Service (USPS) barcoded packages received by UT Mail Services, including Priority Mail, Express Mail, Amazon, Media Mail, First-Class Parcel Service, UPS Surepost, FedEx Smartpost. Offers easy access to package tracking information on the USPS website.
- Tracks incoming purchase order and UT Market deliveries (via Campus Distribution Services) by P.O. Number or shipping vendor tracking number.
- Tracks Document Solutions jobs out for delivery on campus.
Departmental customers can track packages by entering one of the following on the Campus Tracking System site:
- USPS tracking number,
- UT Market P.O. number,
- shipping vendor tracking code, or
- Document Solutions job number.
The search box will scan for records across both the Mail Services and Campus Distribution Services.
While most customers do not need it, advanced search options allow customers to search by name or department as well to get a status update for their packages. Customers who need frequent and regular access to this information may request a login and password to access advanced CTS tracking and pick-up request system.

Will I have to sign for my packages?
Most of the time you will not be asked to sign for USPS packages. UT Mail Services delivers packages to one central point in each building. Each of those locations will have a Delivery Barcode. Every time a UT Mail Services employee delivers packages to that location in your building, he/she will scan the Location Barcode. For example: The DELIVERED scan you see online at USPS.com will provide the details related to date and time that UT Mail Services delivered your package to the mailbox in your building.
