Computer Lab Printing Management

Uniprint manages student printing in computer labs, public areas, and computer classrooms. When students print, they use their University-allocated print quota and, if their quota is depleted, printing is charged to their Diamond Dollars accounts.

Since students release print jobs at a print station, they can see the job cost and and prevent unnecessary printing. Uniprint, therefore, minimizes wasteful printing.
