Palomar College Learning For Success

Mail Services

Hours of Operation:

Because of the need to limit employee hours, the Mailroom will be closed except on Monday and Friday mornings to process US Mail.  If you have need assistance, please email Diane at dcummins@palomar.edu or leave a message for me on extension 2754.  Thank you for your patience!

The Mailroom (Room A-23) is open as follows:

8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday
8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday

U.S. Mail Pickup and Delivery Times:

The U.S. mail is delivered to the Mailroom at approximately 9:30 a.m. The mail is then sorted and placed in the appropriate boxes, usually by 10:30 a.m. Mail received on Mondays and after holidays takes longer to sort because of the volume of mail received.

Outgoing U.S. mail is gathered throughout the day from the mail drop slots in A-23 and from the off-campus courier. There is also a mail drop box on the curb in front of the Administration building for personal mail. The U.S. Postal Service picks up mail at approximately 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday from the outside drop box. Any outgoing mail must be in the Mailroom by 3:30 p.m. each day to be sure it will be processed in time for that day’s mail pick-up.

Billing:

Billing is processed at the end of each month. Monthly billing statements regarding the amounts to be posted to your account will be posted to our ‘Postage Billing’ page. Please contact Angie Valenzuela at Extension 2811 if you have any questions.

Off-Site Mail Delivery:

Mail is picked up from the Mailroom by our couriers before 8 a.m. for delivery to the Escondido Education Center, the Rancho Bernardo Education Center and Fallbrook Education Center.  The courier delivery schedule is as follows:

  • Escondido Education Center – Monday, Wednesday, Friday
  • Rancho Bernardo Education Center – Monday, Wednesday
  • Fallbrook Education Center – Tuesday, Thursday

Faculty/Staff Mailbox locations:

Our mail distribution list is updated every semester based on information received from Governing Board minutes, word of mouth and the ADAs. We use this information to route mail to the appropriate mailboxes. Please be sure to send mailbox location changes to the Mailroom as soon as possible.
