New Year in Central Services

submitted by longj@augsburg.edu

With the 2022-23 school year we have some changes to the Central Services. We are going down to a three-person staff:

Cody Hua – Shipping/Receiving

With the change in staffing levels we need to change the print project lead time to 24-hours. Please be sure to call the Copy Center (612-330-1054) before submitting anything needed sooner. The smoothest process to having your print job completed in time is to submit it using the Augsburg Copy Request system, https://sites.augsburg.edu/centralservices/copy-center-costs/.

Printer support calls/paper request may now take up to 3 hours for Central Services to have someone free to come and look at it. Please call us when your put in your second to last ream of paper to avoid being completely out of paper. If you do not have a back up printer option please ask IT how to add the printer driver to your computer so if the main printer you use is waiting for service you have another option to send your documents to. The Copy Center is also an option at the link above.

Ordering Packages

submitted by longj@augsburg.edu

As companies like Amazon and Target have switched to using flex drivers to deliver their packages we seeing packages delivered all over campus instead of to the Shipping/Receiving Department. We have been trying to fix the issue of packages being left in random places around campus. If you see a package delivered to someplace other then Shipping/Receiving please let us know or bring it in so we can get it to the correct person.

To help the flex drivers find the correct building please use the Christensen Center’s building address when ordering instead of the general campus address. Please make sure you have your full name on the order.

Your Name

Minneapolis, MN 55454

Thank you for your help in this matter.
