Mail and Package Handling

All packages and mail sent to CNSI should be addressed as follows:

C/O: Insert Tenant’s name and contact person
California NanoSystems Institute
570 Westwood Plaza
Building 114, Mail Code: 722710
Los Angeles, California 90095-7227

Personal Mail – Sending and receiving personal mail is prohibited.

USPS Mail – Regular USPS mail can be picked up from 3101 CNSI and is sorted by addressee’s last name. If no name is included, it will be filed under the Tenant’s name. Mail that is not picked up within 30 days of receipt will be returned to sender.

Packages – Tenants must designate a point of contact for packages delivered to CNSI. Once a package arrives, it is electronically scanned into the system and the point of contact will receive an email notification of its arrival. CNSI will attempt to deliver the package to your designated location in the building. Alternatively, Tenants may pick up their package at the Loading Dock during regular business hours. All packages must be signed for before being released.

Special Handling – The Loading Dock is able to temporarily hold temperature sensitive packages in a refrigerator. Please note that a -20 or -80 freezer is not available. Temperature sensitive items should be retrieved as soon as possible.

Shipping Supplies – The Loading Dock carries an array of shipping supplies from FedEx and United Parcel Service (UPS). Tenants may not use CNSI shipping accounts and are encouraged to open their own. Prepaid packages with completed documentation can be dropped off at the Loading Dock for carrier pick-up.

Large Package/Equipment Deliveries

Delivery of large packages or equipment must be pre-arranged with Loading Dock staff so that special accommodations can be made. Items may be held for a limited time depending on available space and receiving schedules.

All approved equipment must be moved into laboratories by Tenant employees. Assistance from CNSI staff is available on a limited basis and as workload permits.

Moving Equipment

Dollies, carts, and hand trucks are available for building occupants to borrow as needed. Items can be checked out from the Loading Dock and must be returned immediately after use.
