Virginia Tech Printing Services operational updates
February 9, 2021
Effective May 31, 2021, the university will no longer offer printing through Virginia Tech Printing Services.
Virginia Tech is committed to the responsible stewardship of public resources. Printing Services is an auxiliary university department, receiving no tax dollars nor tuition fees to support its operations. The decision follows long-term operational reviews of the department’s business model and a continuing decline in demand for on-campus printing offerings.
The Hokie Print shop in Squires Student Center will close on March 31, 2021. Printing Services’ South Main Street facility will serve customers through May 31. University members should use a Virginia-Tech licensed vendor to complete printing projects after May 31.
Students that used the Hokie Print Shop in Squires Student Center can visit University Libraries printing services in Newman Library for their printing, scanning, and copying needs.
- No new orders will be accepted by Printing Services as of May 1, 2021.
- Hokie Print kiosks will continue to operate through the 2021 calendar year.
- The Sign Shop will operate under the Division of Campus Planning, Infrastructure, and Facilities. The Copier Management Program will continue to operate through the 2021 calendar year.
- Bulk Mail will operate under Mail Services.
Further information around licensed printing vendors will be shared in VT Daily News, on the Printing Services website, Procurement Printing Services website, and on the VT Brand site in the coming months. For immediate inquiries around licensed vendors, please refer to the Licensee section on the VT Brand site or contact the VT Brand team.
