The Provost Office has directed the Office of the Dean to instruct all VCUarts departments that all major technology purchases, including cloud-based services, must be reviewed by the VCUarts Technology Support Staff for compliance with university policies, standards, and guidelines, as well as compatibility with existing university technologies.
If you are investigating the purchase of a major technology for your department, then please contact Dan Grenier, Director of Technology Support, before proceeding with purchasing.

Therefore, we are recommending users contact Laserserve for their printer repair needs. Please be aware that Laserserv’s costs for on-site repairs are greater than if you deliver it to their shop.
