Print & Copy Allotment for Students Fall Semester 2017

Posted: 8/18/17 4:42 PM

Print & Copy Allotment for Students Fall Semester 2017

Student copy/print allocations have loaded for the Fall Semester.   The $80 allocation is equivalent to 1,000 black and white pages. This allocation is refreshed and reloaded at the beginning of each semester.  There are no rollovers or refunds at the end of each term.   Should students run out of this allocation before the end of the semester they can continue to copy/print using their X Cash account.

Fun fact:  During the most recent academic year (2016-2017), 98% of students did not utilize their full print allocation.

As you may have noticed, there has been a recent increase in phishing attempts against Xavier University. This form of identity theft is commonly targeted at higher-ed institutions, especially during the back to school period.  

Be suspicious of any email that urgently requests you to provide personal or account information in order to "keep" or "renew" your email account. Xavier IT will never request your information in this manner for this purpose.

For more information on how to spot and deal with phishing attempts, please consult the Xavier IT Knowledgebase at https://services.xavier.edu/TDClient/KB/ArticleDet?ID=64

Last Thursday, Xavier University participated in a two-hour audit of its ability to curtail electricity usage which exceeded expectations.  The audit was part of a commitment to reduce the University's electrical load during extreme conditions and it accomplished this goal by cutting back its electric consumption by over two-thirds.  This achievement qualifies Xavier for a rebate on its electric costs and positions the University to better support an electrical curtailment in the event of an emergency.

For test results of Xavier's electrical consumption during the demand response test, please click on this link which shows a graph of the electrical performance during the curtailment.

More information about the Demand Response Program can be viewed by clicking on this link.

The team from Physical Plant would like to thank everyone that participated by turning off non-essential equipment and lighting during the test period.
