Postal Services will continue its once-a-day delivery through Aug. 20 because of package volume from Move-In. Two-a-day campus deliveries will return Aug. 21.

University of South Carolina Postal Services will operate on a limited summer schedule from June 19 through Aug. 12, going to one morning delivery and collection across campus each day instead of the fall and spring semester norm of two. 

Please be aware that deliveries will arrive later than the normal morning scheduled time. Departments may still contact the office for special pickups of large mail at 803-777-2158 or

For visitors to the office at 1600 Hampton St., the office will stay open its normal hours to accept outgoing mail. To ensure same-day processing, try to have your mail into the office by 2 p.m. using the loading dock entrance. Also, passport services will close at 3:30 p.m. each day.
