Printing in the labs

Self-serve black-and-white and colour printing is available in most computer labs and libraries across the UVic campus. Printing services are provided through PaperCut, a print management software.

Printing with PaperCut

All current students, staff, and faculty are eligible to use PaperCut. All you need is a valid NetLink ID and ONECard flex funds to print. You don’t need your physical ONECard to print.

All our lab computers are already set up to print using PaperCut. Printing is available any time during computer lab operating hours.

PaperCut printing is also available in the McPherson Library and several other labs on campus.

Costs

All our locations have black-and-white printing for $0.12 per page.

Colour printing is available in BEC and Clearihue. It costs $0.40 per page.

Refunds are not available for user error or unused ONECard flex funds.

You can also set up Papercut Mobility on your own devices for quicker printing. No need to email yourself documents anymore!
