University Mail - Best Practices

- Update mailing information on all written correspondences and webpages according to the format provided. Always include department name

Boston College
[Department Name]
[Employee Name/Building Name, Room Number]
140 Commonwealth Ave
Chestnut Hill, MA 02467

- Periodically contact all frequently used external customers, companies, and suppliers to ensure that all mailing information is up-to-date according to the provided format

- For checks and confidential employee and student information always verify that the sender has the complete mailing information

- When placing orders or corresponding with external parties always inform them that all insufficiently addressed mail will either incur a delay in processing or be returned to sender

Campus Mail Services will be sending out a letter and postcard to departments to inform the University community of these best practices. Departments should notify their outside contacts to update their mailing information.
