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.
