Use your print allowance effectively: find out when you receive
your allowance, how to check your balance, how many pages you can
print and what to do if you expend your allowance.
Current students, faculty and staff pay the following to print
in public sites:
Double-sided printing is the default. The cost is the same
whether you print from your UB Quota purse or Campus Cash.
$0.30 per printed side (simplex or duplex). There is no discount
for duplex color printing.
Double-sided printing is the default. The cost is the same whether you print from your UB Quota Purse or Campus Cash.
If a print job is sent to the color printer, even if only one page (or even no pages) contains color the entire job is charged at the color rate. UBIT recommends printing only those pages that you want to contain color to the color printers, and send the remainder of your pages to the black and white printers in order to save cost and let your UB Quota stretch as far as possible.
All students enrolled in courses for the current semester, as
well as faculty and staff receive a page allowance, or allocation,
to print the equivalent of:
Your allowance rolls over from semester to semester (Fall, Spring and Summer). You must use iprint at least once per semester to receive the allocation for that semester.
Your balance does not roll over to the next academic year (Summer to Fall). The remaining allowance in your iprint balance will be deleted prior to the start of the new academic year.
Printing blank pages to use up your UB Quota is not allowed.
When using the computing sites' Cybrary,
stations, your available quota is displayed in dollars on the
iprint pop-up window. You may also view your available quota from
any of the Print
The iprint pop-up window is not available
If you think your iprint@ub quota is incorrect, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To learn the number of pages you may print with your current
balance, see Determine
How Many Pages You Can Print with Your Allowance.
If you spend all the funds in your UB Quota purse for the
semester, you may not add money to it. Instead, you can print using
as the source of printing funds. Printing costs the same with
Campus Cash as using your UB Quota purse. You can also print using
another quota purse if your department provides one.
You may share unused UB Quota with other students. Do not share your UBITName and password: you alone are responsible for the use of your UBITName. You must print from your UBITName, so your friends must send or give you the documents they want to print.
