Records Center Services during COVID-19 Precautions

At the Office of Records Management, we are doing everything we can to deliver the services needed for mission critical and life sustaining operations related to records access, compliance, training, and guidance.

  • Access to Records – Pickups/deliveries can be made curbside at the Records Center or outside your building.  One-hour advance notice required. 

  • Shredding Records Already in Storage – We will continue to shred any records at the Records Center that have fulfilled retention requirements and have been approved.

  • Sending Records for Storage or Shredding – We will continue to receive records, but will quarantine them for 24-48 hours before storing or shredding.
  • Blue/White Shredding – Bags or Secure Bins are being received, on a case by case basis due to Office of the Physical Plant's (OPP) limited availability. Please confirm with your Facilities Coordinator and contact us with questions.
  • Limited Hours – Mon, Weds, &  Fri, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The Penn State Inactive Records Center (IRC) is designed to provide secure storage for inactive University records that must be retained to meet the legal, fiscal, or administrative requirements of the University. We operate on a cost recovery business model, and offer records services and storage solutions to the University community at low rates.

Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
