Our Mission

We provide every faculty member, classified professional, department and program with the ability to communicate and conduct business with each other and the world through prompt, reliable, secure and economical services for the collection, transmission and delivery of messages and merchandise.

Incoming Mail Delivery

All incoming mail from the USPS, district offices and campus senders will be sorted and placed in the faculty and departmental mailboxes at the Mail room, within a four-hour window.

Outgoing Mail Delivery Times

  • To ensure that your outgoing USPS and FedEx mail and packages go out the same day, bring the item to the Mail room by 2 p.m. for the daily pickup at 3:00 p.m. pickup.

  • For same-day delivery to Foothill College or FHDA Central Services offices, bring the item to the Mail room by 9:30 a.m.

  • There is a USPS mailbox for personal outgoing mail, located outside the Mail room door that opens onto the Main Quad. Pickup is at 3 p.m.

Tips for Successful Delivery

  • Use inter-office mail envelopes for deliveries to offices on campus, at Foothill College or at the FHDA Central Services offices. 

  • Include the recipient's first and last name, as well as their department.

  • Keep inter-office mail separated from outgoing U.S. Postal Service (USPS) mail to be metered.

De Anza has USPS permits for first-class mail, third-class mail and business reply mail. Contact the Mail room for additional information on the proper use of permits and the latest in postal regulations.
