ESF Printing Information:

What: Faculty, Staff, and Students are given a 500 unit quota per year to use on public printers at ESF for the academic year. The ESF Computing Center charges for any additional printing in an effort to stop the incredible waste of past years. Print quotas will not transfer from academic year to academic year and will reset the weekend prior to the start of the fall semester.

Procedure: When the initial quota is exhausted, the individual can go to the Cashier’s office in Bray Hall (102 Bray Hall) to purchase additional printing units. 500 printing units cost $20.00 ($10 for 250 units or $5 for 125). After purchasing, students MUST present their receipt to a CNS worker in room 317 Baker Labs (the HelpDesk) to have their quota replenished. Faculty and Staff can use State/Research account numbers to add quotas. Please give the HelpDesk attendant in 317 Baker Labs all pertinent information to facilitate the purchase of quota from an account.

Why: In 2006, ESF students printed almost one million pages on Computing Center equipment - about 10% of which was left behind. This was deemed unacceptable and changes were planned.
