Off-Campus Metered Mailings

Located in the Ram Print at Faculty Memorial Hall on the Rose Hill Campus in Room 129, the Mail Services Area offers the following services to the Fordham community:

  • Metered mail services, including monthly reports to controllers office used to charge back the Fordham departments
  • Maintaining the University “Non Profit” permit numbers
  • Nonprofit mail services
  • Stamps (departments should submit a stamp requisition form indicating quantity and denominations)

Metered mail goes out daily during the work week provided it is received by 2 p.m.

Any department wishing to send mail off campus may do so provided they fill out the Mail Service Requisition form with a valid budget number included. Please see our Metered Mail Guidelines before proceeding.

First-Class and Nonprofit Mailings

Fordham University has a Permit (#7608) which can be used for both First Class and Nonprofit. See Requirements for First Class Mail and Nonprofit Mail when Permit #7608 is used. Mail can also be processed without the use of this permit.

The processing of Bulk Mailings can realize substantial savings for departments. Using Bulk Rates (Nonprofit) of the basic rate of .169 cents can save departments over 50% of postage cost, (Note: Rates are subject to changes determined by the Postal Rate Commission). Additional savings may be realized and are dependent on the size of the mailing, the larger the mailing….(more pieces), the larger the savings.

Always think ahead when using our facilities. Please allow sufficient time to process mail, especially during peak periods.
