Black and white and color printing for students is available from public desktop computers on the main level 3 of the library. 

Each semester, undergraduate students are allotted $12.50 worth of printing (250 black and white pages) and graduate students are allotted $25 worth (500 black and white pages) of printing.

The printed pages are deducted from this balance.  Black and white prints are deducted at $.05 per page and color prints are deducted at $.25 per page. If students exceed this amount, they will be billed.
