Distribution Center Delivery Truck

With campus operations scaled down in most campus buildings due to COVID-19, the Distribution Center has modified operations for distribution of mail and packages, including UPS packages. We have made these changes due to campus efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing and remote work arrangements. 

Our aim is to ensure that departments can access mail and packages in a timely, consistent and efficient manner while still achieving the goals of campus’s preventative measures that are in place.

Effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020 - Updated Tuesday, June 23, 2020: 

  • All mail and packages, including UPS packages will be staged and sorted by UCB number at the Distribution Center, 3300 Walnut St., Unit B, with some exceptions noted below. 
    • Exceptions -- and deliveries -- will be made for critical research items that are time-sensitive or have a short shelf-life. Please call the Distribution Center at 303-492-6524 to discuss arrangements for such deliveries. 
    • The Distribution Center will be open for pickups Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Entry to the parking lot is off of 33rd Street.
      • We prefer that each department designate someone to pick up mail and packages for their entire department weekly.
      • Please provide notice at least 30 minutes in advance of your arrival by scheduling a mail and package pick-up using the online form located here
        • For special circumstances, or if you have questions or concerns, please call our main number (303-492-6524) to provide your name, UCB Number, and the time you plan on picking up your items.
