Letters and parcels are stamped at a central location at the university by the "Internal Mail" section. Place your letter/parcel on the external mail (ekstern post) shelf by the department’s letter boxes (Science Park) or in the room for receiving goods (Biokæden). Mail is collected in the morning and taken to the university administration who stamps and sends it the same day.
For a parcel or letter to be sent the same day, you must put it on the shelf around 09.30 at the Science Park and around 9 at Biokæden. You can also take your letter/parcel to the Internal Mail in the afternoon for shipment if you cannot make it by pickup of the mail in the morning.
Letters will be delivered three to five working days after delivery to PostNord.
Do you need your letter delivered tomorrow?

Write the letter ‘Q’ on the top centre of the envelope, and Internal Mail will take care of the rest. But please be aware that this is expensive: a quick letter weighing up to 100 grams costs 27 kroner.
