In a significant joint venture, the Procurement and Information Technology Services departments are working together to refresh the Xerox multi-function devices (MFDs), commonly known as printers, across the campus. This initiative will also include the deployment of print management software PaperCut.

This project will see the replacement of 94 campus MFDs with new Xerox AltaLink C8155 Series devices equipped with PaperCut. Additionally, 30 existing printers will be upgraded with the software, enhancing their functionality. The Procurement department has reached out to each area to assess whether to keep, replace, or remove their printer.

The installation of the new MFDs is scheduled to commence in early May and is expected to continue through June. Departmental contacts will receive an email notification prior to their printer’s replacement or upgrade.

An important piece of information to note is that on the day of the Xerox MFD installation and setup, the unit will be unavailable for use from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. due to offsite work. In the event of printing or copying needs while a department’s unit is down, the University Print Shop can be contacted at ext. 3680,, or by submitting your print job online.

Watch for more detailed information about the rollout and installation, which will be shared by email and through your departmental contact. Knowledge-base articles will also be provided to help with the transition.

This project marks a step towards enhancing the printing services on campus, offering a more efficient, environmentally sustainable, and user-friendly experience.
