Please review this policy for goods delivered to your home during COVID-19:

 Equipment and Purchasing Policy for items shipped to locations currently providing remote instruction and services as a result of the COVID-19 situation

We are working from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with limited staff. 

If your department is closed, please contact your vendors to have your deliveries placed on hold. In case your shipment is en route, please contact us so we can notify the carrier to hold the package for you until shelter in place is lifted.

If your department is still open, please inform us of any expected packages.  Please contact Grover Rudolph at (510) 228-5188 and provide your shipping tracking number, a delivery contact and location.


Shipping and Receiving typically handles more than 200 shipments daily for all campus departments from FedEx, UPS, DHL, USPS and other carriers.

In 2017 we implemented an electronic scanning system that tracks all packages from when we receive the package from the truck to when we deliver it to University end users.
