Copy Center

At the Copy Center, we support the mission of University of Houston-Clear Lake by providing on-campus specialists and equipment to assist the faculty, staff and students with high quality printing at a competitive and reasonable price. Our top priority is customer service. 

If printed materials will be mailed off-campus or seen by an external audience, prior approval must be obtained from the UHCL Brand Guide Team at

Occasionally, it may be necessary to have a job printed by an off-campus commercial printer. An off-campus printing approval form issued by the printing services supervisor must be presented with your purchase request.
