Lab Printing

Lab Laser Print Quota

A quota of 600 pages per semester for printing on laser printers in college labs is established for each college computing account.   The quota is reset to 600 pages at the beginning of each semester.

Faculty are asked to minimize the printing of class notes. This will allow students to avoid having to use laser printing in computer labs and exceeding their print quotas.

Printing Tips

  • It is advised that students submit their print jobs only after the present print job has finished printing. By submitting too many jobs at a time, there is a possibility that the Queues will be overloaded.
  • If you have very large files to print, it is advised that it be broken down into smaller files if possible and then sent to the release terminal for printing.

With the Web Print feature, users do not have to install any driver, nor any printer on their personal devices.
