MUB Copy Center Closed Month of July, Reopens In August

The MUB Copy Center will be closed for the month of July and will reopen on Monday, Aug. 3.  This initiative is in support of the UNH mission to reduce expenses during the current economically challenging environment. 

This action will also contribute to the university’s sustainability efforts, reducing electrical and air-conditioning requirements for the center during this period.

Printing and mailing services will be shifting all work to the West Edge facility and expect to maintain the level of service the UNH community has grown accustom to.  Projects may be submitted to the online order site http://www.printing.unh.edu/index.html , emailed to printing.services@unh.edu, dropped off at the West Edge office. Or, call 2-0537 to arrange for pick up. 

The West Edge office is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

New England Center Will Serve Continental Breakfast for Guests Beginning July 7

Beginning July 7, 2009, the New England Center Hotel and Conference Center will no longer be open for hot breakfast in the restaurant. A continental breakfast will be available for hotel guests in the lobby of the hotel.

The center’s award-winning dining will continue to be available for lunch and dinner, as well as Sunday brunch from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

“Like any business we continually review our services and offerings,” said David May, assistant vice president of business affairs at UNH. “With overall business down the numbers no longer justify the expense of providing a breakfast service every day. This move will allow us to redirect our limited resources to more strategic services.”

Pollution Prevention Workshop July 15

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services will present a two-hour workshop on pollution prevention July 15, from 10 a.m. to noon, in McConnell 212.
Sponsored by UNH’s Green Cleaning committee, the workshop will demonstrate how recycling is good but reducing is better. Examples of how to minimize or eliminate wasteful domestic and industrial processes will be presented.

Signals Going Paperless
