What's New in Purchasing Services

Package delivery services on hold during the university’s 2017 Winter Break 

The university's Winter Break schedule is December 22 through December 29, 2017.

During our Winter Break both FedEx and UPS have been instructed to hold all regular package delivery and pick up services. Regular package services will resume on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.

Departments that were exempt from this delivery hold last year due to ongoing operations will continue to receive shipments during the Winter Break.

In the event you have an urgent need to schedule a delivery or pick up during this time you may contact the appropriate carrier at the following numbers:

FedEx: 800-463-3339. Use the FedEx tracking number on the package (if available) or the delivery address. Express service packages may be picked at their Express counter located at: 127 Athens Way, Nashville, TN 37228. FedEx will be closed on December 25th and January 1st.

UPS: 615-299-4673 or 615-299-4674. UPS will be closed on December 25th and January 1st.
