Located on the ground floor of Sorensen Hall, the Copy Center offers students, faculty and staff a wide variety of printing and copying services, from simple flyers to full-color bound books. You may not know it, but you have seen the Copy Center's work all over campus.

Contact: 309-794-7301

Hours: 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays

Procedure for printing and copying requests

Email or bring your original document directly to the Copy Center and complete an order form.

We do not edit images. Bring your project ready to print, in the correct size. Documents in PDF format are preferred.

If your print job is a book, leave the pages in order. We will arrange them for printing. 

You can add cut marks if you're familiar with layout techniques, or we can cut to bleed.

Payment options: please supply the departmental account number. We must have this account number before jobs can begin. For personal print jobs, cash or check are accepted.

We will email you when the order is finished.
