To all IUTS Users

This year's holiday season break is approaching and we would like to clarify the IUTS shipping schedule for the period.

Similar to prior years, for most users,

  • The last date for IUTS will be Wed. Dec. 20,   2017
  • The last day for deliveries will be Thurs.  Dec. 21, 2017
  • Regular pickups and deliveries will commence again on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Exception:  The last day to send books/mail to The University of Toronto is Monday, December 18th 2017 (so as to avoid shipments being undeliverable over the holidays - the UofT is closed effective close of business on Wednesday, Dec. 20th, 2017)

If you receive a suspicious letter or parcel

  1. Immediately advise University of Waterloo Campus Police (x84911) of the situation
  2. Do not handle, shake, smell or taste
  3. Do not attempt to clean up resulting spills, e.g. powder, liquid, etc.
  4. Isolate the article and evacuate the immediate vicinity
  5. Anyone who has handled the article should immediately wash their hands with soap and water
  6. Remove any contaminated clothing and place in plastic bag or sealed container

Campus Police/Local Police will conduct a threat assessment to determine and coordinate the appropriate response.

Note: Anything that was handled through Central Stores has already been inspected by Central Stores staff. When in doubt, contact Joel Norris.
