PURPOSE
 

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 operational 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@trinity.edu. For supplies, place order by logging in to:  http://www.myschoolbuilding.com.
 

DEPARTMENT PRINT CARD 

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 in the library.  An individual or department may request funds be added to their copy/print card via email tcrd@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.

 Value transfer stations:  Located at three locations;  Library (behind Java City), Thomas/Lightner and Murchison Halls.  Instructions for use are posted at each station.

  

 Online:  Individual card holders may add additional copies online at www.tigerbucks.com with a personal credit card.

  

 E-mail:  Request additional copy credit by emailing the Tiger Card Office at tcrd@trinity.edu.  Departments are charged at month end and the charges are reflected on the department's monthly budget report.

  

 University guests may purchase a copy/print card (CUB Card) from a VALUE TRANSFER STATION for copying at public copy machines in the library or to print from a local computer.  For more information contact the Tiger Card Office at Ext. 7885 or email tcrd@trinity.edu.
 

  

COPIER ACCESS CODES

Access codes can be assigned to departments for department 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.

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.  Every ID card allows a student or staff member to purchase products with their Trinity University ID Card (the Tiger Card as it is now called) once Tiger Bucks have been purchased.

Soft drink vending machines are located throughout campus.  All machines accept cash and some have the option to use Tiger Bucks.  To report technical problems or request re-fills please call our service line at Ext. 5400, provide the TU number (a 3-digit number located in front of the machine) and state the problem.
