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.

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.)

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.

Copy Center

Greener Than Yesterday…

Have you noticed anything different with your Copy Center jobs?

To reduce the volume of single use plastics, the Copy Center has made some changes in the packaging of copy jobs sent through inter-campus mail. Most jobs will arrive in reusable boxes or bags. Please help us on our mission to reduce plastic pollution by placing the reusable containers in the outgoing mail for return to the Copy Center, where it will be used to deliver future copy jobs.

Multi-Functional Devices: Greener Machines

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.

Whether on or off campus, there are still a number of ways for faculty and staff to use their EagleOne money! A few of these options include:

  • Order online through the Bookstore: Items can be shipped to your house or picked up in store. Select “Faculty” at check out (applies to staff as well) to receive any faculty/staff discounts.
  • Use the GrubHub app: you can use either EagleOne or credit card as payment when you use GrubHub to order from campus dining facilities. See UMW Dining’s website for details.
  • Off Campus Merchant Partners: our off campus merchants still accept EagleOne! Visit the EagleOne Card website for an up-to-date list.
  • Send personal mail and packages through the UMW Post Office: stamps and other mailing supplies are available for purchase as well.

Post Office

Inbound Mail

While campus remains under COVID-condition operations, non-USPS carriers will continue to be asked to drop off packages at the UMW Post Office rather than at offices. When packages are delivered to the Post Office, recipients will receive a notification from donotreply@iofficecorp.com when they are ready for pickup.

There are occasions when non-USPS carriers might deliver to a building or office instead of the Post Office. If you receive a package not intended for you or notice an unattended package in your building, contact us and we will make arrangements to get the package to the intended recipient.

Have you been expecting a package? Use the tracker: if it indicates that the package was delivered to the UMW Post Office, contact us and we will locate it for you. If it was delivered elsewhere, please contact the courier directly.

Outbound Mail

Outbound mail leaves campus daily at 4:30 pm. Exception: Saturday & Sunday

UMW retains 100% of the sales of non-postage mailing supplies purchased at the UMW Post Office.

Postage Increase

The USPS post office has announced a request for a postage rate increase.  If approved, the increase will go into effect Jan 24, 2021. Full information can be found here: https://about.usps.com/newsroom/national-releases/2020/1009-usps-announces-new-prices-for-2021.htm
