Printing in a Computer Lab (VolPrint)

VolPrint Goes Green

In an effort to encourage a “greener” approach to printing, OIT, in conjunction with the Student Government Association (SGA) and Technology Fee Advisory Board, made a change to the VolPrint charges on August 14, 2017.

The new fees for black and white printing are:

  • Letter size (simplex) single-sided: $0.03/per page
  • Letter size (duplex) double-sided: $0.03/first side; $0.01/second side

For instance, if you print a four-page document, single-side only, the charge will be $0.12.  If you print the same document on the front and back (duplex), the charges will be $0.08.

Color printing charges will remain the same.

Printing on campus is simple and convenient using the VolPrint system. More than 60 printers are available for students to use in OIT Computer Labs and many other areas across campus. Users can print from either the computers located in the student computer labs or from their own personal devices. Prices for printing are as follows:
