Campus Store & Print Shoppe Amalgamation @ NDC Campus

August 14, 2018 • Written by

Our Notre Dame Print Shoppe team is pleased to announce that as of June 4th, 2018 we have moved some of our services to the Campus Store!  Our goal is to provide a central location that will be more convenient for students, and allow our team to provide consistent ‘one-stop-shop’ service.

RRC students will now be able to rent their lockers, bike lockers, load their PaperCut accounts and pick up their printing at the same time as their course materials purchase, which will help reduce the amount of long line-ups students would have to stand in. We have been operating under this model of service at our EDC location since January 2018, and we are happy to report that it has been a positive experience!

Also all print job requests by students at both locations will be facilitated online through our microsite only.  We will be unable to accept paper print requisitions.  Please visit us at https://blogs.rrc.ca/printshoppe/ and select print request to get started!

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the following people and we will be happy to help.  We will see you in the Campus Store!

Here is an interesting video I came across which speaks to me as I believe movement is medicine and should be taken daily. I think about movement as a pill and ask myself if I took it today or not. I often get caught up in the time it takes to move and why I can’t just swallow it and be done with it.
