Print Credits

Please Note: Use Print Preview to ensure you are printing only what you intended to print.

In order to print in the labs, you must first prepay for printing. “Print Credits” may be purchased from the Help Desk in the Marvin Harvey Building. We recommend you deposit $20 at the beginning of the year. Printing costs $0.10 per page, $0.15 for a double-sided page, and $0.25 per coloured page. To determine your current print credits, when logged into a computer under your account, you will see a black dollar sign ($) in the notification area of the task bar. Hover your mouse over this icon to see the print credit total on your account.
