What is the campus print policy? How many pages can I print?

Each student, depending on the length of their program of study, has an allotment of 1,000 black-and-white, single-sided prints per year. The entire allotment for the program of study (equivalent to $90 per year), is provided to each student when they first arrive on campus. For example, a first-year student in a four-year program has access to 4,000 prints ($360) when they arrive in their freshman year. Once a student has exhausted their individual allotment, regardless of program year, no additional prints will be provided by USciences.


However, if a student wishes to add printing capacity, they may purchase this through the OneCard system.  To purchase additional prints, a student may add money to their account at the kiosk located in Wilson Hall or at Funds added to a student’s printing account are non-transferrable and cannot be refunded. Therefore, students should only transfer funds that they expect to use for printing into this account.

If you experience a problem with a printer, you should submit a ticket at - you will be refunded for any pages lost. Tickets for page refunds must be submitted within one week of lost pages.
