Turnaround Times

Please drop off your request at least 24 hours before you need it. Our offices serve copy requests for MU’s Main Campus, Ballston Center, and Reston Center and workloads vary throughout the year. So, on occasion, it may take longer than 24 hours to complete a job, because of our workload or the complexity of your request (i.e., hand book copying, cover stock requests, etc.) We ask that you give us a week’s notice for large requests. Please call with any questions you may have.

Submitting a Job Request

Please fill out a Copy Request Form for students at either the Main Campus Copy Center or Ballston Center Room 511, along with your original document(s), flash drive, or CD.
