Copy Center

Special Orders

Have a job that seems outside the scope of what the Copy Center can offer? Contact us to find out how we can help. The Copy Center partners with local companies for jobs that cannot be done in-house. We also work with them to ensure that customers are getting the lowest prices available.


New Credit Card Readers

Have you noticed the new payment readers on Pepsi beverage vending machines?  The machines now accept credit, debit, and mobile payments!  The readers do not currently accept EagleOne, but that functionality will soon be restored. Keep an eye out for this decal, which will be placed on machines when all payment options are working.

New Vending Items

Campus vending machines are stocked on a regular basis. Whether its new favorites like Zapp’s Voodo chips, or classics like Fritos, there is something for everyone. Visit the nearest vending machine to see the most recent selection of treats.
