Post: Advice

How do I send international mail?

We can send international letters and parcels from University Departments at a fraction of the normal cost. You need to put your departmental stamp on every item of airmail (not just the first envelope)

Do Wellesbourne Campus and the Clinical Sciences Unit at Walsgrave Hospital count as internal post destinations?

These are both internal post destinations. We deliver Clinical Sciences mail to the Hospital every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and mail goes to Wellesbourne every Monday and Thursday. The delivery van leaves Westwood at 10:00 am. Please put envelopes in the internal mail - we will keep them together until the next delivery.

Only mail for Clinical Sciences is internal, not the rest of the hospital, which should be fully addressed for Royal Mail to deliver.

I have several different types of post I want to send - what should I do?

Please bundle your post with elastic bands into first class, second class, Special Delivery, internal, and International Mail.

Please don't mix these categories of mail. Any international items which are mixed with UK mail may be franked at UK rates and therefore returned or delayed and also surcharged.

Do you keep post in the main postroom?

No. All post (whether from inside or outside Warwick) is processed and delivered on the day it arrives.

We handle in excess of 2 tons of post every day, meaning we just don't have the room to store it. However, we occasionally recieve items without a full address, simply a name. In this case we will look on the University's e-mail database and re-direct to the department indicated. If there is no record of the person, the item will be "returned to sender".

I've got a problem with an external post service - can you help?

We'll do our best to help with any issues that may come up with your post. Please contact us on postroom@warwick.ac.uk.
