Information Technology & Institutional Planning


Printing, scanning, and copying requirements vary widely amongst the campus community.  Please contact IT&IP for any special requests or printing consultation. 

IT&IP recommends the use of larger enterprise multi-functional copiers (MFC) to centralize departmental printing needs, reduce operational costs, and standard support, training, and repair activities.  Please contact IT&IP for MFC device recommendations and leasing agreement reviews.  In general, Xerox and Ricoh models are recommended brands for large volume multi-feature printing devices.

For smaller office printing needs, please refer to the following list of recommended printers.  The printing devices below should be available from various campus resellers including the CSUBUY portal, the Bronco Bookstore, and other vendors.

Important: Printer devices that differ from the recommended models listed above or are purchased without the explicit approval of IT will not be supported by the Client Services department.  In such cases, IT will provide a "best effort" approach in supporting non-standard printing equipment.  To ensure your printer continues to operate within the campus client standard environment, please consult with IT before purchasing a new printer.
