Enhanced campus printing solutions arriving soon

Auxiliary Services is thrilled to announce a major update regarding print and copy services on campus. After years of managing RedPrint and departmental copier/printer services in-house, we have partnered with Pacific Office Automation (POA) to enhance the services provided to our campus community. This partnership, formed through collaboration with key program stakeholders—UIT, departments and colleges, libraries, and UCard—follows a comprehensive bidding process to select the best vendor.

Starting Monday, July 1, 2024, this new, efficient, and user-friendly program will replace the existing Managed Print/RedPrint services. Print & Mail Services will manage the new relationship with Pacific Office Automation (POA) and looks forward to serving current MPS/RedPrint customers and onboarding new departments.
