Off-campus shipping is for all university shipping and mailing to domestic or international off-campus recipients.
If you are shipping a hazardous material, the Federal Department of Transportation shipping regulations require shipping of hazardous materials to be properly classified, documented, and handled by trained employees. Failure to meet these regulatory requirements may result in citations, fines, and/or imprisonment. Preparation of shipment must follow the instructions on EH&S Hazardous Materials Shipping website to prepare, document, and ship hazardous materials.
Please remember, all EH&S related packages must be transported to Postal and Parcel Services by the shipping department. These items will not be transported in Campus Mail as the packages have not been properly inspected for meeting regulatory requirements.
