Computer Lab Printing

Overview

Printers and multi-function printer/copiers are available in most campus computer labs for a nominal fee. Due to COVID-19 access to printers will be reduced. Some lab locations may have fewer printers available or may require that jobs be submitted to a technician who will retrieve your print job for you.

Costs

Black-and-white prints normally cost between $0.08-$0.10 per sheet of paper. Color costs are more varied, typically between $0.25-$0.50 per side of paper. Some departmental computer labs offer free or reduced-price printing. Please consult your specific lab's documentation for additional pricing details.

How to Print

From a Lab Computer

  1. Print desired pages from the computer you are working on. Make note of the file name of your print job.
  2. Go to the nearest print kiosk in your area, any staff can help you locate the appropriate kiosk.
  3. At the kiosk, swipe your UO ID, Duck Bucks, or Oregon card.
  4. Select your print job, which is identified by your user name and the name of your document.
  5. Check the amount that you will be charged as prices are dependent on the color content and paper size. Refunds cannot be given for misdirected print jobs.
