An Overview of Printing at UB
In computing sites with printing racks, a consultant will print
and file your documents by the first letter of your UBITName.
UB students, faculty and staff receive a number of complementary
printed pages every semester ("iprint@ub"), as well as the ability
to send documents from a PC, Mac or Unix computer to selected
campus printers ("iprint anywhere"). Check with your department for
any additional printing services.
How It Works
You can find more information in Step-by-Step
Instructions for Printing, but the general process is:
- Submit a document from the Web interface, your mobile device,
or a computing site
- Choose a printer to send your document to
- Select your UB Quota (or another purse, if available)
- "Release" (start printing) your document
- Collect your document(s) at a computing site

How long do I have to release documents I've submitted from my own computer?
How long do I have to pick up documents I've printed?
Can I print to any printer on campus?
Well, no, not any printer. Some departments maintain
their own printers, with their own rules for who may use them and
how much they may print. Check with your department for any
additional printers you may use. Also, you cannot print to Bell 101
from your own computer unless printing through UBUnix.
Do I need to install any software on my computer to print to public sites printers?
No, unless you are printing from a mobile device. There is an
app for Android and iOS.
What hours is printing available?
The same hours as the computing
sites where they are located.
