FedEx has discontinued their pickups at all the former drop-off locations at SIO. You have several options for sending domestic and international mail via UCSD Mail Services. 

The preferred method for FedEx shipments is the UCSD Desktop Shipping Center. If your package weighs over 70 pounds, or contains hazardous material, do not follow these instructions. UCSD Shipping must process the package.

If you use an FedEx Airbill and use your department's FedEx account number, charge a third party, or charge a credit card, you can take your package to a drop box location:
