Shipping & Receiving

Hours of Operation 8:00 am – 4:30 pm

Elaine Tagge, Coordinator

Chemistry Shipping and Receiving is the central receiving point for ALL shipments to the Department of Chemistry. The shipping and receiving coordinator is responsible for all shipping, receiving and handling of packages for the department, including gas cylinders, liquid nitrogen, and dry ice.


Packages are shipped from the department via the department's Federal Express account. Packages shipped by carriers other than Federal Express will require a credit card or they will need to be shipped COD. All outbound packages from the Department MUST be approved by the Shipping and receiving Coordinator. Packages should be brought to 133 Choppin Hall before noon on the day you need the item shipped.

Department, personal, or prepaid packages must be boxed, sealed, and ready to be shipped. We will print a shipping label for you.
