Printing (Student IT)

Printing Allocation

Each student is automatically given an allocation of $36 dollars per academic year for printing purposes.  This ‘print credit’ is tied to your College account and will allow you to print to any student network printer in a computer lab area.  The cost for printing is as follows:

  • Black & White = $0.05 cents per/page
  • Black & White (double-sided print) = $0.04 cents/page
  • Colour (single or double-sided print) = $0.40 cents/page

Printing costs are automatically deducted from a students’ available print balance each time a print job is sent. When you are out of print balance, students must purchase additional print credit at their own expense.

Purchasing Additional Print Credit

There are 3 main options for purchasing additonal print credit for your account:

  1. 24x7 online payment from your College Printing Account portal page (access instructions below). 
  2. In person at the Print Shop (Room B112, 1st floor Shuniah Bldg) using cash, cheque, credit card or Interac. Discounted bulk purchase is available at this site only:  receive $25 in credits for a $20 payment.
