There has been a change in the way office supplies are delivered across campus. Starting on Aug. 1, Staples began delivering all orders to the CU Distribution Center as a bulk delivery. CU Distribution then delivers the orders on their daily mail, package and freight runs to departments and units across campus. 

Packages will still be delivered the next day after you place your order. However, there will be some minor differences to how deliveries are completed. You will receive a delivery confirmation email when the package is received on the Distribution Center dock, and when your package arrives it will already be signed for by a Distribution employee. If you need to return an item, please contact Staples Customer Care at 877-826-7755. If you have a delivery issue, please contact CU Distribution at 303-492-6524.

This change helps with the University of Colorado’s sustainability initiatives by reducing truck traffic on campus and cutting down on emissions. Less truck traffic on main campus also supports pedestrian safety.
