ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF (excluding UCSD Medical Center)

SUBJECT:    Perishable and FedEx/UPS Priority Deliveries during the Campus

Closure During the campus closure spanning December 22 through January 1, 2013, most campus buildings are locked. However, Campus Receiving/Distribution will be open December 26 to December 28 to deliver your priority and perishable packages. FedEx and UPS joins the campus in a solution that we anticipate supports your research and/or critical activities during the closure.

If your package is addressed to be sent directly to an on-campus address be aware that both FedEx and UPS will be delivering only to those buildings that are open and accessible. Any package or flat that can't be delivered will be routed to UCSD Receiving/Distribution located at 7835 Trade Street Suite 100, San Diego, CA 92121.

If your package is processed through Receiving/Distribution, recipients with a valid campus delivery address and UCSD email address will be sent an e-mail advising them that their package arrived.

* For all items that are labeled perishable, one attempt will be made to deliver the   item. This may necessitate that the package be re-iced if undeliverable.

* For any priority (express) package, you have the following delivery choices: the   same day, the next day, pick up the item at Receiving/Distribution, or wait until   January 2, 2013 when all services revert to normal delivery.

FedEx will service the drop boxes at the following locations:
* CNCB/GPL Loading Dock (previously called CMG)
* Pacific Hall Drop Box
* Mail Services, Campus Services Complex, Building A

UPS will service the drop boxes at the following locations:
* Moore’s UCSD Cancer Center, 3855 Health Sciences Drive, 2nd Floor next
  to room 2250
* Mail Services, Campus Services Complex, Building A
