Mass Bulk Mailings
Campus mail is correspondence sent out by Vanderbilt departments for delivery to addresses within the Vanderbilt system. All mail must be official Vanderbilt business. This mail can be a non-specific memo for general distribution or items addressed to a specific individual or department within Vanderbilt. Specific addressee mail, if not in an envelope, should be folded, tabbed, and marked with the individual’s name, department/title, and that person’s PMB number.
*Note — We sort mail by the PMB number and not by the name, department, building, or room number. Failure to list the correct PMB number may result in delay or misdirection of your mail. Envelopes lacking a PMB number are put aside for later research and will result in delivery delays. Properly addressed campus mail is delivered by the next business day.
Internal Mailing to All On-Campus Students
If you want to send mail to all undergraduate students on campus, it is not necessary to address each piece. We can simply stuff the mail in each student’s mailbox. There is no charge for this service. We do require an advance notice of five days for mass bulk mailings. If you have any questions, please call 322-2934.
Internal Mailing to Any or All Employees
It is necessary to address each piece to the correct PMB number. These pieces should be arranged in numerical order by PMB number. There is no charge for this service. If you have any questions, please call 322-2934.
