Hidden Georgia Tech: The Postal Distribution Center

By Victor Rogers July 23, 2018

Across the Georgia Tech campus, hidden spaces and forgotten places await rediscovery. Some are relics of an earlier time, difficult to find and explore. Others are very much in view but often overlooked. Hidden Georgia Tech is a photo-essay series highlighting places on campus that are hidden in plain sight.

Postal Distribution Center

E-mail is immediate, but many people still enjoy receiving cards, magazines, and packages via good old snail mail. Proof can be found at Georgia Tech’s Postal Distribution Center, located at 711 Marietta Street. Depending on the time of year, employees process between 28,000 and 35,000 pieces of metered mail per month. Mail is distributed all over campus, including 10,480 mailboxes at the Student Center Post Office.

Let’s take a look.
