Shipping by Courier

For same-day pickup, please drop-off your packages at the MBS Office no later than 2:00 PM.  If your package contains dry ice, you must ensure the proper labels are used.  You can locate these labels in the NMS third floor copy room (NMS 3.262) or at the MBS front desk (NHB 2.606).

For questions on shipping and receiving, please contact the MBS Student Workers.


Every lab has, or can have, its own UPS account.  If you don't have an account, please contact Julie Bowers to set one up.  Benefits to setting up a UPS account include direct billing, no hassle, and no late fees.  To schedule a UPS pickup, call 1-800-742-5877.


FedEx packing labels are located in the MBS Office.  You will need to include your account number on the packing label in the field "Your Internal Billing Reference" (this applies to both US and International Airbills).  To schedule a FedEx pickup, call 1-800-463-3339.  For the MBS FedEx account number, please contact the MBS Office.

If you require same-day pickup after 2:00 PM, you will need to take your item(s) to a FedEx store to be shipped.  Be advised, FedEx stores cannot accept dry ice packages, so plan accordingly.
