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 Penn State and Happy Valley communities.


After more than 31 years of service, Mark Raffetto, senior operator, will retire in December 2018. 

Copy Center Hours

Fall and spring semester hours are Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

From the second week in May to July 31, copy center hours are  Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m from May 7 - July 31. 

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
  • Department responsible for payment (if different than your home department please specify)
  • Budget number/ Fund number (cost center if appropriate)
  • USER ID/ACCESS ID of the billing contact person’s ID that processes the IDCC’s 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 and LionCash. We now accept Penn State pcards, VISA, Mastercard, and Discover credit cards.
