Student Printing On Campus
There are various printers available on campus that students can print from their own wireless enabled computer. The program that allows students to print off on-campus printers is called Pharos.

Students are allotted 500 double-sided sheets of black-and-white paper each semester. Printer quotas start in August for Fall semester, January for Spring semester, and May for Summer Classes.
Other types of printing cost the following:
- $.03 for a single-sided black-and-white page (beyond your allotted quota)

- $.49 for an 8.5x11 color page page
- $.99 for an 11x17 color page
- $.99 a square foot for plotting

Before contacting the Technology Help Desk regarding printer issues, users should restart the printer and try to print again. This is done by switching the printer off, waiting 20 seconds, and then turning it back on again.
Users should also make sure that the printer's network cable is securely plugged into the printer and the wall.
