(June 8, 2010)--The UPS Store on the UTSA Main Campus has expanded services and moved to its permanent home in the University Center. The store is just inside the entrance adjacent to the Fiesta dancers sculpture in the space previously used by Events Management and Conference Services.
The new store, which opened June 7, features a second register and weigh station for faster service. The store now features a large-format printer to assist customers with banners, posters and signs. Students, faculty and staff needing on-campus delivery for personal U.S. mail now can take advantage of one of 660 mailboxes available for rent. Other new services include passport photos and an expanded assortment of shipping and school supplies.
As an added convenience, UPS Store customers can upload their print and duplication jobs directly to the store via the Web and then pick up the job once it is finished.
To access the "Web-to-print" feature, users visit the UPS Store document services website and create an account. Customers also can use an account created at another UPS Store to log in and submit a print job.
The UPS Store will assist with any packing or shipping needs this summer with its moving box sale. From now until Aug. 30, moving box prices are reduced 25-50 percent. The UPS Store carries a variety of box sizes to help you get organized and make a smooth transition to off-campus life.
For more information, stop by the store or visit the UPS Store website.
Successful first-year students at UTSA are those who learn how to utilize resources, recognize and resolve problems, and prepare themselves to take advantage of their time on campus. The Student Success Series promotes this achievement by offering workshops on the common concerns and questions first-year students have during their transition to university life.
