The purpose of the Mail Services Department at Villanova is to provide all faculty, staff and students with a reliable facility to handle all of their mailing needs and to support the University in its endeavors by providing knowledgeable and cost effective mailing and shipping solutions.
PACKAGE DELIVERY NOTICE
In an effort to reduce cost and improve package delivery services, Villanova Mail Services is testing a new package delivery application that requires recipients to swipe their Wildcard in lieu of a signature. Faculty and staff can be assured that no personal information is collected or compromised when the card is swiped in this process.
Beginning January 2, 2014, all accountable campus deliveries will require a Wildcard scan upon delivery.
Thank you for your help in this important initiative.
New Post Office Price Changes
In a press release issue on December 24, 2013 the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) partially approves the request by the Postal Service for an exigent rate increase to offset losses suffered as a result of the Great Recession of 2008-2009. The PRC rejects permanent price increases.
New Rates will include
First Class Mail 49 cents
Postcards 33 cents
