Mail received at the Universidad de Guanajuato for the Summer Law Institute is delivered to the office each afternoon at approximately 2:30 p.m..

A list of the names of those people receiving mail is posted outside the office. Experience has demonstrated that it is better if you pick up your own mail. It reduces misunderstandings. We prefer that you pick up your mail and that you do not arrange for a friend or agent to pick up your mail.
