Convenience Copy Center provides economical, readily accessible copy machines for use by faculty, staff and students. Machines are located throughout campus, as dictated by usage in specific areas or buildings.
The Purchasing Office is responsible for all operation aspects of the convenience copy system including: repair and maintenance, supplies (i.e., paper, toner, etc.) upgrades, new purchases and placement of all machines. Service of any machine is obtained by calling the Purchasing Office (Ext. 5400) or by email COPIERSERVICE [at] Trinity.edu. For supplies, place order by logging in to: http://www.myschoolbuilding.com.
Departments can also print on campus using a print card issued by the Tiger Card Office. This card can be used in all computer labs for printing and in public use copiers located in the library. An individual or department may request funds be added to their copy/print card via email tcrd [at] trinity.edu or by calling the Tiger Card Office Ext. 7885. The card has a charge limit and departments will be billed monthly for the amount of copies made.
There are several ways for students; staff members or guests to add cash value to their Tiger Bucks account.
Access codes can be assigned to departments for departmental use. The code is usually a 5-digit number assigned by the Purchasing Office. Access codes can be requested for the department or for each individual in the department. Copy machines that are programmed to accept access codes will prompt the user for a code in order to activate the copier. Monthly meter readings for each copier will indicate each assigned code usage. Departments are charged at month end and the charges are reflected on the department’s monthly budget report. Access code charges and the print card charges are separate.
A department may request a copier replacement or upgrade. Certain criteria must be met for consideration of replacement or upgrade.
Most vending and laundry machines have a card access system (Tiger Bucks). To purchase campus vending a student or staff member may go to the Business Office/ cashiers area, the Tiger Office or online at www.tigerbucks.com and add tiger bucks to the ID card.
