Last week, the USPS informed the university that they are classifying the West Campus Family Housing units as dormitories, and will no longer deliver mail to these residence. Effective June 1st, all mail for West Campus Family Housing will be delivered to the University.
With rumors that Storke is next in line for a withdrawal of USPS mail services, we ask all graduate students to participate in the fight to stop the USPS from withdrawing services to our communities. Here’s a link to the flyer with additional details.
Great news! The USPS has retracted their letter to the university stating their intent to stop mail services to West Campus Family Housing on June 1st. Hopefully we have won the war, and not just a single battle.
If the USPS intends to stop delivery of mail at a later date, the university has a plan to maintain services to our communities while the legal team continues to fight to maintain mail services if that becomes necessary.
UCSB Housing and the Graduate Student Association will continue to keep you informed as information becomes available.
