Common Questions

If I send a black and white file to a color printer, will I be charged for a color print?

Yes. Please select your printer carefully!

If I spend all the funds in my UB Quota purse, how can I add more?

You can't add more funds to your UB Quota (or any other quota purse), but you can print using Campus Cash.

If I have money in my UB Quota Purse at the end of the semester, can I get a refund?

No. Your UB Quota Purse is the equivalent of a number of black and white pages given to you at the start of each semester. It is not money. Your UB Quota will roll over from Fall to Spring and Spring to Summer semesters. It is reset at the start of the Fall semester.
