Have you ever needed to print something and not known where to do it? Never fear! The iSchool has some printers that you can use!

In the new building, we recommend using Luna, located next to the Help Desk on the 4th floor. To learn more about the public printers and where they live, . We will do a second Tech Tip in the future regarding printers to use in the new building once everything is set up there!

School Faculty, Staff, and PhD students are not charged for printing, although it is tracked. Both black and white and color printing costs $0.07/page. Color printing is available on Optimus, located on the 2nd floor near the Help Desk. Check your printing balance on the page. Unused printing quotas do not carry over. Additional printing quota can be purchased on the website.
Undergraduate iSchool students have access to printers across campus, including the ones in the iSchool. Undergraduate printing cost is $.10/page on monochrome printers and $.40/page on color printers. Color printers charge $.40/page even if monochrome documents are printed.
Printer Installation for your computer:
