Fees and Payment

The Libraries have some locally-owned computers and printers for use by anyone, including guests. Other labs within the libraries are run by the Office of Information Technology (OIT). 

Students, faculty, and staff get a print allowance from OIT every semester. Visit OIT's Printing page for information on fees, checking your balance, and adding funds.
