The Mail Center only processes faculty and staff mail related to university business. Anything coming in that’s not addressed to faculty or staff will be refused upon receipt and sent back.

Internal GSD “Post” is done via email.

National Post
United States Postal Service (USPS) is the national mail system. If you miss a package at home, double check your package slips: your package may not be at the geographically closest post office. Get Forever stamps, which are good regardless of frequent stamp price increases. And don’t forget to forward your mail before you move.

To update your address in the Harvard System
Go to your my.Harvard account and update your Personal Info. Be sure to update your address if you move during the academic year or over the summer.

International Courier & Package Delivery Services
FedEx Office offers overnight delivery service that’s especially useful for those last-minute fellowship application deadlines. Each store has different “latest drop-off” times. There’s a drop box outside of Gund on Cambridge Street (the latest drop-off is about 7:15pm).

United Postal Service (UPS) is sometimes better for ground-delivery services. Most of the stuff you order online is probably sent this way. You might want to sign up for UPS My Choice, which gives you the option to reschedule delivery or authorize it to be left at your door (you’ll need to be on record as living at your address).
