New Canon Copier Installation Complete

The Canon installation near Gift Planning is now complete.  Before sending a print job to the new copier/printer, please be sure to select the new printer called “ESC Three” from your list of available printers.
If you need some of the advanced features that the printer has (e.g. secure print, staple, 3hole punch) please follow the instructions in the attached document.
We are scheduling a formal training session with a Canon representative for the near future. Each “session” is approximately 30+minutes long.  They will cover the material multiple times due to space limitations of the room where the printer is installed.
Please plan to attend one of these sessions.  As mentioned in the previous communication, there is also the on-line E-learning option as well as a mini booklet attached to the device.  Thank you for your patience as we migrate to this new device and learn its functionality.

New Canon Printer by Gift Planning


As previously communicated, Canon is now the University’s preferred supplier of copiers and printers. The ESC M20i East copier located on the West side of the building will be transitioned from Xerox equipment to Canon on Thursday, November 19th from approximately 9:00 am to 10:00 am.  During this transition time, the printer will not be available. Please plan to utilize the ESC-Two printer on the north side during this time.  Our DSS team and Canon will work to ensure print queues and drivers are installed on your computers. A notification will be sent out once the installation is complete and the new Canon copier is operational.


There are three ways to learn the functionality of the new device:

1)      E-learning training website provided by Canon, please see below instructions to access the website.

2)      A mini instruction booklet attached to the device for you to reference.

3)      Formal training from a Canon representative will be forthcoming at a later date, we will keep you posted.


Procurement Services will coordinate with Xerox the removal of the old copiers.  

Thank you for your patience during this transition.
