Saint Louis University's Department of Distribution Services serves as the primary receiving and distribution center for both the 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, a FM:Interact work order request must be placed.
After the move request has been approved, you will need to ask your department administrator to complete an eSeeIDO. Contact Ray Noldon at email@example.com to obtain final costs.
If you need to request assistance with a large move not related to a construction project, please contact Distribution Services at 314-977-2958. Distribution Services will review your request, the scope of work and provide you with a solution.
For moves requiring only furniture, please submit a New Service Request under Facilities Maintenance.
For cubicle wall removal/installation and removal of wall-attached desks, please follow these instructions (PDF).
The record storage facility at Earhart Hall is available for departmental use. Those who wish to utilize the storage area must submit a work order request under the description "Records."
Before creating your work order, please review the Record Storage Policies (PDF) and Procedures to ensure proper record storage policy, including instructions on box sizes and labeling, is followed.
To request tents, tables and chairs for outdoor events, contact Event Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-977-6338.
