SLU Distribution Services

Saint Louis University's Department of Distribution Services serves as the primary receiving and distribution center for SLU's north and south campuses. The department is responsible for picking up mail from the local post offices and mail drop locations around campus.

This group also completes small office moves and bulk item deliveries, sets up outdoor events that are coordinated by Event Services and picks up large recycling around campus.

The Department of Distribution Services is located in Earhart Hall, which also houses a record storage facility.

Before using any of the department's services, please submit a service request online.
