I got a letter today with one of those yellow stickers on it. What do I do?

I'm living in halls of residence, so the post is delivered in large bags and sorted at a central point on campus, before being sent out to our halls to be sorted yet again into mailboxes.

If you've got the letter then that's it?

Usually, if a letter arrives at the Royal Mail delivery office with a yellow sticker on, then they hold it and send a card with the postman to say that you have to collect it and pay the due amount. Because your university gets their mail delivered in sacks to sort themselves, then it obviously just went in with the rest - so unless someone asks you for the money, don't worry about it.

Instead of the postman bringing it and delivering it to each 'address', a van comes and dumps a large number of sacks of post. And the postman tells the mailroom man to sort it out themselves. So you're lucky if you get post by 2PM.

Which is still quicker than I get post from the Royal Mail here.

It depends. I'm in catered halls, so my address includes a room number. Those in flats only have a flat number - anyone in the flat can get their mail.
