Business Services eUpdate

Assorted Notes

Beverage Supply Chain Shortages

Pepsi is experiencing ongoing challenges in their business operations due to labor and material shortages. As a result of these supply chain issues, there may be shortages or delays in products at the Bookstore, vending machines, and the dining hall. Your patience is appreciated.

ATM Move

The BB&T ATM, now operated by Truist, has been relocated from the third floor of Lee Hall to the second floor of the University Center. It is located by the dining kiosk adjacent to Panera.

Office Supply Purchases

The University’s exclusive office supply contractor, The Supply Room (TSRC), must be used for all office supply orders. TSRC maintains a convenient punch-out catalog within eVA and ships next day for most traditional supply items if the order is placed before 4PM. If there are needs that absolutely cannot wait for a next day delivery, the University bookstore should be the secondary contract resource prior to making a purchase from an alternate source. Note that purchases from alternate sources will require compliance with applicable procurement regulations. Please address any related questions to Procurement Services.

Compostable Coffee Pods

The Green UMW working group is pleased to announce the availability of an alternative to plastic K-Cups®, right here on campus! The UMW Bookstore offers Boyd’s Coffee compostable pods, which will work in most brewers that accept K-Cup® portion packs, excluding Keurig® 2.0 brewers. With a bio-based filter and a ring made of coffee chaff, Boyd’s pods provide a sustainable single-serve caffeine solution that supports UMW’s goal of reducing plastic waste. Mix and match by purchasing individual pods, or order a single blend by the case. (When purchasing a case, please allow 5 business days between order and delivery to the Bookstore.) Departmental and Faculty Staff discounts apply! Please contact the UMW Bookstore at sm8306@bncollege.com or x1017 with questions about ordering Boyd’s coffee pods.

Your interest in and efforts towards a more sustainable future are appreciated! Questions about sustainability may be directed to GreenUMW@umw.edu.


Copy Center

Multi-Functional Devices: A Desktop Alternative

Multi-functional devices (MFDs) are centrally located print, copy and scanning devices. The MFDs are a valuable resource, especially in light of current  supply chain and chip production issues that are affecting the availability of desktop printers. Their use also reduces plastic consumption and waste associated with desktop printers. If you need help finding and MFD near you, or would like assistance in using them, please contact the Copy Center at x1935. Instructions for use can also be found here. Saving files as e-documents rather than printing is another great way to be kind to both the planet and departmental budgets!

Partners In Printing

Did you know the Copy Center partners with local companies for jobs that can’t be completed in-house? Contact us with your printing needs, and we will work with our selective local partners to secure the best value in price and quality. Contact the Copy Center with questions at copies@umw.edu, or by calling x1935.
