Printing cost and funds

There is a per-page fee for print jobs in multimedia lab locations. The following rates apply for the various types of print jobs that are available:

Print FormatCost per sheet
Black & White double-sided (Duplex) (Default) $0.10
Black & White single-sided (Simplex) $0.07
Color single-sided (Simplex) $0.50
Poster-sized prints See Poster Printing

Each semester, students registered in courses will receive $3.50 (equivalent to 50 single-sided Black & White pages) of Uniprint Dollars on their Loyola University campus card ID. These funds will be added after the first week of the semester after course registration closes. Unused allocations do not carry over from each year and are non-transferable. Once Uniprint Dollars are depleted, printing costs will be deducted from cardholder's Rambler Bucks account on your Loyola ID.

Alumni may print from lab printers using a Courtesy Card. These are available to purchase for $1 and funds may continue to be added in cash from the multiple Value Port terminals locations around each campus.

Faculty and Staff
It is recommended that faculty and staff utilize departmental printers for laser jet printing needs without the need for per-page fees. Faculty may request Printwise fund allocations for research by contacting department budget administrator and the Campus Card office for further information. In addition, you may add Rambler Bucks funds to your personal Loyola ID to pay for print jobs when printing in multimedia labs.

Print Errors and Reprints

We cannot provide refunds for reprints done due to typos, printing incorrect documents. We recommend always clicking Print Preview to see a preview of how the document will appear printed and paginated. This can also help to better avoid printing blank sheets as final pages in word processing documents. You may modify margins and page ranges as necessary in the Print Properties and Print Selection sections where necessary. 

If print jobs are significantly streaked, faded, smudged, spotty or creased due to printer, toner or paper errors, please visit a Digital Media Services staffed location so an advisor may assess the printer in order to replace paper or toner supplies and re-print the print job for you free of charge.
