The Campus Post Office is now accepting credit cards!

The CUA community can now enjoy the added convenience of purchasing postal products and shipping services using both cash and credit cards.  Postal Services has upgraded its systems to the new ShipRite point-of-sales station.  This new point-of-sales system integrates touch screen menus allowing a variety of additional transactions  and a 15" full color monitor which enables the customers to see the same screen as the sales professional.  The system does not support the sales of money orders or acceptance of personal checks and Cardinal Cards. The Campus Post Office now offers UPS and FEDEX shipping options and shipping supplies - come by and visit us to explore what is now available for purchase.
