My listing in the Campus Directory doesn’t have a box number. What do I do?
Make sure you have a current Box Number listed in the Campus Directory. On the far right of the tab bar there is “Edit My Record” button. Log in via MyAccess to the self-service section of the directory website. After logging in you will be presented with the edit page for your own directory entry. You will be able to edit your entire directory entry except for your name, title, department and email address. Initial information must be entered by Human Resources, your departments’ Payroll/Personnel Analyst or Business Officer. Those with a campus address may choose from a large selection of preformed campus addresses. You can now add your campus Mailbox Number. Reminder: UCSF Campus Mail is delivered to your campus mailbox delivery point – not to an individual’s office.

What if I order a package that’s delivered via Fed Ex?
Use the zip code of your building’s physical location, please.

Who should I call if I have questions?
