There is a copy centre on the Lugano Campus (copying and printing services), run by a private company in outsourcing.

The CopyCenter is located in the main building of the campus, in Room 121 (first level).

The CopyCenter:

  • manages the printers on the Lugano Campus;
  • is the focal point for the production, distribution and sale of course materials on the Lugano Campus;
  • provides a thesis printing and binding service (for a charge);
  • produces business cards and other printed materials for academic and administrative staff.

Course materials can be produced independently and sent directly to the CopyCenter, with reasonable notice, specifying:

  • format;
  • number of copies;
  • binding, if applicable (for a charge)
  • title of course;
  • date of distribution.

Students may be asked to cover the printing costs of course materials. In this case, materials will be sold at the CopyCenter itself.

By contrast, all other printed corporate materials produced on the Lugano Campus must be approved in advance by the Institutional Communication Service, which will ensure that the file is sent to the CopyCenter for printing with the necessary instructions.



The CopyCenter is also available to lecturers and other staff on the Mendrisio Campus at different conditions. Please refer here for more information and instructions.
