Learn more about your semesterly "allowance" for free printing, meant to cover the majority of printing needs for UB students.
Current UB students, faculty and staff receive a certain number of pages they can print for free at public computing sites per semester. This is called your "UB Quota." You may print from a computing sites computer or your own computer.
Please note: If you do not print during a semester, you do not receive a UB Quota for that semester, even if you are enrolled.
Your UB Quota is the equivalent of:
You may also print in color, but it is more expensive (will use up more Quota). See Printing Costs for complete information.
Your balance does not roll over; you will receive a new quota each semester.
If you spend all the funds in your UB Quota for the semester, you may print using Campus Cash as the source of printing funds. You can also print using another quota (sometimes called a "purse") if your department provides one.
Graduates can continue to access their quota up to 6 months after degree conferral.
There are no refunds for unused quota.
You may see other quota when you print elsewhere - some departments offer a separate quota, and UB's residence halls have a separate quota residents can see and use only in labs operated by Campus Living (Greiner Business Center, Googyear Academic Success Center, Fargo Lounge, Porter Lounge and apartment complex business centers). These are separate from your UB Quota.
Ask the consultant at the print service counter for assistance. If there is no print service counter, send email to the computing site team.
