Beginning June 4, 2012, we are asking UAB faculty and staff to begin using the new mailing address for UAB. It is important to inform those who send you mail on a regular basis of your new address. The university's new official mailing address will be:
Official Unit Name
Building Abbreviation and Room Number
1720 2nd Ave S
Birmingham, AL 35294-xxxx
UAB Media Relations
1720 2nd Ave South
Birmingham, AL 35294-0113
The USPS does not want the new address used until the UAB Post Office can accept mail at our new location. We will begin moving equipment on or soon after June 4, so use of the address can start on or after that date. During our transition we will continue to accept and deliver mail as we normally do.
The USPS has assured us that even if the old address is used after we move, it should still be delivered to us since the university has its own unique zip code - 35294. That should help reduce the need to re-print stationery and business cards before or soon after the address changes. Please be sure if the mailing address is listed on a website that updates to the address are made by June 4, 2012, or soon thereafter.
Print, Copy, and Bulk Mail will also move to this location. There will be a single point of entry from 2nd Avenue South for all of these services. The retail window for the UAB Post Office will be located just inside the main entrance. It will continue to offer all the services of a USPS post office branch except processing passport applications. Parking will be available on a limited basis in front of the building and in a parking lot to its west.
If you have any questions regarding this change please contact us by calling 934-4181.
