Mail Service

Incoming Mail

Incoming mail is delivered directly to all the EUI sites by the Italian postal service, Monday to Friday.

Always give the full address and the name your EUI building for all correspondence (see below).

Please note:

During official EUI closures (Easter, Summer, Winter break) we strongly recommend to avoid receiving registered letters, packages or any kind of mail items requiring a signed receipt: under these circumstances (EUI closure) shipments are likely to be returned to the courier's warehouse. 



Internal Mail (Shuttle)

The EUI Shuttle makes round trips of the EUI campus to collect and deliver internal mail, outgoing mail, deliver stationery supplies, and documents from the Printshop.

Leave post, documents and other material for the Shuttle in the porters lodge of your EUI building.  

See the Navette/Shuttle timetable for arrival and departure times for EUI buildings.

EUI Delivery Acceptance Policy

As of 1 December 2014 a new policy has been put in place at the EUI concerning the use of the EUI address for private packages and correspondance. Further details are available here.

Outgoing Mail

All official EUI outgoing mail is sent using the Italian postal services Monday to Friday.

Post must be ready to send in the Porter's Lodge, with a completed form for outgoing mail in time for collection by the EUI Shuttle (Navette/Shuttle timetable)     

The Shuttle takes outgoing mail to the Badia post-room by 12.30 where it is then collected by Poste Italiane.

Outgoing Couriers

Official EUI courier packages must be at the Badia post-room by 12.30, with a completed DHL EXPRESS form (filled in on-line) and the EUI courier service form.

Always give full contact info of the receiver (mobile, email, fax) for delivery. Courier services do not deliver to PO boxes.

DHL Express Courier also offers the on-line INTRASHIP service, available at the EUI for Administrative Assistants ONLY. This service allows you to create on-line shipping documents, exclusive lists of shippers and recipients (visible only to your Department/Service), have real-time tracking information on your shipment and keep archive copies of your shipment documents.
