Brandeis partners with Ricoh to provide campus with all-in-one machines that handle printing, copying, faxing, and scanning.

These multifunction machines enable members of the Brandeis community to:

  • Release a print job to any copier on campus by swiping a Brandeis ID Card or by entering a username and password
  • Print from a cellphone or mobile device
  • Fax from any copier
  • Print confidentially and securely from shared copiers
  • Utilize new technology and best practice in print management
  • Reduce wasted paper

The new machines are part of a larger program that will help Brandeis reduce print waste and our associated carbon footprint. Currently, the university uses approximately 100,000 pounds of paper every year, creating a carbon footprint of more than 150 metric tons of CO2-equivalent, the same as burning 17,000 gallons of gasoline.

The new program will help reduce paper usage an estimated 30% by increasing duplex printing and reducing abandoned print jobs.

Installation of new devices around campus has been completed.
