 Shipping & Receiving

Promoting EXCELLENCE, Delivering SERVICE

WKU Shipping & Receiving provides the University with a centralized location for dispatching of FedEx, UPS and all freightliners. We utilize the WKU 3 digit delivery codes uniquely assigned to each department to serve our campus more effectively. Shipping & Receiving also provides moving assistance for campus departments. We strive to accomplish these duties so that all packages, inbound or outbound, and all move requests are handled in a professional manner that emphasizes the importance of customer service. We realize that customers shape our relationship with the University community and we will continue to provide service at a level that is nothing less than excellent.

To ship packages off campus by FedEx or UPS please submit a pick up request form online for FedEx by 1:30 pm and UPS by 3:00 pm in order to be dispatched that day.

When shipping item(s) off-campus:

1. Prepare the package for shipment by putting it in a box and labeling it with a "Ship To" and "Return" address.
