Engineering Copy Center

In the mid-1960s, the Department of Architectural Engineering founded the Engineering Copy Center primarily to serve the blueprinting needs of Penn State's engineering and architectural engineering students. Since that time, the copy center's services have evolved and expanded to also serve the University and the surrounding community.

Copy Center Hours

The Engineering Copy Center is open 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please call 814-863-1612 with any questions. You may also contact Penn State’s Multimedia & Print Center with your printing needs.

Copy Center Billing and Payments

All customers printing materials through the Copy Center for a Penn State college, school, or department must provide the following information:

  • Customer’s name
  • Customer’s phone number and email address
  • Department number that is responsible for payment
  • Budget number/ Fund number (cost center if appropriate)
  • USER ID/ACCESS ID of the billing contact person who processes the IDCCs for the department responsible for payment

We will submit an IDCC to the department responsible for paying the invoice. The pink copy of the invoice must be given to the billing contact person. For outstanding invoices, departments will receive a statement summarizing any invoices past due, so correct department information is critical.

We also accept cash, LionCash, Penn State p-cards, and VISA, Mastercard, and Discover credit cards. The payment is due at the time of pick-up.
