Addresses in many forms

By

Physical postal addresses, their use and misuse, are a primary concern of this organization.  Getting them wrong wastes money, loses clients, and results in delays and errors and inefficiencies and lots of other things that make life less pleasant.

Addresses are not the sole province of the postal systems of the world.  Major institutions often have internal address systems which it may be wise for those communicating with them to learn.

For example, Temple University in Philadelphia has even found it necessary to describe its internal addressing system on its website.  In part, it sets out the taxonomy of the system and urges correspondents to use it in order to save time and money:

Temple University Campus Addressing

Why use Correct Campus Addressing?

  • Each building has been assigned a complete mailing address – street address and unique zip + 4 add-on.
  • The United States Postal Service sorts mail using high-speed mailing equipment that reads and sorts mail according to the correct addresses per building.
  • Your correct address allows incoming mail to bypass several, manual, sorting stages at the 30th Street facility, the local US Post Office and our central facility.
  • When mail moves directly from 30th Street’s automated sorting equipment to your Temple Route Carrier, you receive faster, more accurate service.

Why use Correct Campus Addressing?

Internal Zip Codes are based on university building codes. These zip codes provide carriers a standard reference by which to process internal mail.

  • The prefix (083 – XX) identifies a specific building.
  • The suffix (XXX – 39) identifies a specific box within the building
  • Buildings with central delivery points always carry the suffix “00”. Ex. (006-00)”
