Back to Top Transition to Ricoh Document Services Centers

Effective December 15, 2012, the University’s contract with FedEx Office for duplicating services expires. As part of our strategic effort to better manage our document output, the University is expanding our agreement with Ricoh-USA to manage its new Document Service Centers. This transition will lead to better management of our overall document processes, resulting in improved efficiency and greater cost savings.

Ricoh-USA is providing additional value-added services for departments as part of the new Document Service Centers:

Number of on-campus Document Service Centers will increase from the current two locations (CB-29 White Hall Classroom Building and MN-246 Medical Education – Dental Science Building) to include a third at W.T. Young Library.

Provision of courier service for pickup and delivery of orders to departments

Extended operating hours:

White Hall Classroom Building and Medical Center locations: 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday

W.T. Young Library location: 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday,
Noon to 5:00pm Saturday and Sunday

Payment types include University procurement card, UK Plus card, cash, personal debit/credit cards

Investment in new, modern equipment to meet University duplicating and print finishing needso:p>

The W.T. Young Library location will be open beginning on Monday, December 17, 2012 and fully operational to meet departments’ needs. However, because the W.T. Young Library will be closed for portions of the Winter Break, this location will not be open from December 22sup>nd through December 25th and from December 29th through January 1st.&.  White Hall and Medical Center locations will become operational on Wednesday, January 9, 2013.

Departments may place orders with the Document Service Centers via email: ukdscyoung@uky.edua or phone at 257-1813 or 257-3392 effective December 17.

Donate to UK's C.R.I.S.I.S. Program

The C.R.I.S.I.S. Program is in place to help University of Kentucky staff members that are experiencing personal hardship. This program provides temporary financial assistance in the form of a onetime payment of up to five hundred dollars. The program is self-sustaining through staff and faculty contributions to the program, by check-only donation or payroll deductions. All donations are non-tax-deductible and payroll deductions are not pre-tax.

This program is a wonderful way to help our UK community in need. This program though is in crisis itself. Last year, they were able to help approximately 35 people, but had to turn away over 75 qualified applicants for lack of funds. Even the smallest donation of $5 will go a long way to helping others in need. 

For more information please visit: or contact Heidi Morrow with questions.
