The library offers several locations where users can send a print job:
- Student Center
- Computer lab
- Computer classroom
There are two additional color printers in Waitzer Hall that are not maintained by the library.
- 1st floor breakroom
- 3rd floor common area
All new accounts are on-boarded with the Mobility Print system. On-campus users can access instructions here:
Those who would like assistance with setting up printing with their laptops, please visit the EVMS Network Information Center (NIC) for assistance. The NIC is located in Lewis Hall, Suite 1003, across from the Student Center.
Students are given a generous printing balance of $200 per year. For most students, the annual allowance cycle begins on July 1. For Physician Assistant students, the annual allowance cycle begins on January 1. Credits from the previous year do not carry over. Fees from the previous year are not deducted from a new allowance balance. Printing costs are as follows:
- 10 cents per page for simplex (single-sided) black and white documents
- 20 cents per page for duplex (double-sided) black and white documents
- 30 cents per page for simplex color documents
- 60 cents per page for duplex color documents
Patrons who print in black and white should be able to print 2,000 simplex pages annually, which is more than enough for the average student. If your account balance drops below $5, you will receive a low balance notice from PaperCut. Those who exceed their allowance will be charged at the rates listed above. PaperCut uses the standard accounting practice of displaying negative balances in parenthesis; e.g. ($4.90) equals -$4.90. The charges will appear on their library accounts, and they will receive a monthly bill.
Please note that all library accounts must be paid in full prior to graduation. Graduating student accounts are limited in April to avoid incurring a negative balance before graduation. Please visit the circulation desk for additional information and help with print credits.
