ATS Microlab Update:

Starting on Wednesday, July 27th, at 8:30am, Information Technology will be migrating our lab printers to a new server. While the upgrade is taking place printing and mobile printing will be down.

We anticipate the migration to take no longer than 4 hours and printing access to be restored by 1:00 pm on Wednesday, July 27th.

What printing services are available?

Student Computer Lab Printing

  • Each semester all enrolled students who have domain accounts are provided a $7.50 print credit. Faculty and staff do not receive a printing allotment, but can purchase print credit in the Information Technology Center as described below.
  • The $7.50 credit is provided to enrolled students before the start of classes for each semester.
  • Semester print quota increases are processed on the Friday before classes and several more times until the last day to drop/add classes.
  • If the student does not use the entire $7.50 during that semester, any amount remaining will be rolled over to the next semester and added on to the quota.
  • The $7.50 received each semester for printing is not actually money that is deposited into any account.  It is the monetary representation of 150 free black and white pages provided to enrolled students each semester.  Since money is not deposited, no refunds are provided, and the credit cannot be transferred from one student account to another.
  • If the student uses the entire amount and needs to continue to print, the student is able to pay for additional print quota though the Print Quota Increase utility or go to the pay station located in the Information Technology Center computer lab.

The prices for printing are:

  • Black & White laser printing: $.05 per page for single sided prints
  • When using duplex printing to print on both sides of the page, additional pages are charged at a reduced rate, which averages 7 cents per page.  It is important to note that the utility used to monitor and charge printing always rounds duplex prints up to even numbered pages.  This causes a 1 page print to be read as 2 pages, or a 7 page print to be read as 8 pages.

Print Quota Utility

Using the UWStudent Print Quota Increase Utility, students can agree to be billed for increases to their UWStudent print balance instead of paying for print quota increases in advance.
