The Imaging Center (IC) provides a variety of print and binding services to the CCS community. It is located on the 6th floor of the Taubman Center in room 631. All services are processed by work-study students from various departments on campus.
The IC’s regular hours are Monday – Thursday from 8am to 7pm and Friday from 8am to 4pm. There are extended weekend hours during finals, which are posted on the IC Campus Offices page
The Imaging Center has two Canon production laser printers, two Epson wide-format printers, and two Epson sheet-feed inkjet printers. In addition, the IC also offers draft quality wide-format printing on two Epson plotter printers. The latest addition to the IC print services is Risograph printing. Furthermore, the IC offers finishing services which include stack cutting and plastic coil or wire binding.
Students must submit files to the IC that are print-ready via the online print request forms found on the Imaging Center’s Campus Office page. Turnaround times for each service vary but generally take between one and two business days. Turnaround times will increase during midterms and finals. Once a print request has been submitted, IC staff will respond with a price quote and an estimated time of completion, along with a link to schedule a pickup appointment. Students can pay for services with cash, credit card, and the CCS Flex.
The Imaging Center will accept staff and faculty print jobs through the Department Print Request Form. If color prints or posters are being charged to a department, an 8-digit budget code number is required in order for the job to be processed. Faculty and staff are welcome to print personal projects in the Imaging Center.
For faculty teaching a sponsored project course, or any other course that will require large-scale printing, please contact the Imaging Center within the first few weeks of the semester with information on what type and how much printing is needed to complete the project and any major due dates. In order to set up a student print budget, the Imaging Center will need a current class roster and budget authorization from Institutional Advancement.

The Imaging Center is also available for digital or in-person consultations to assist with proper file setup or to give advice on projects.
