Printing on the Lab/Student Printers with PCOUNTER

In the interest of sustainability and conservation of resources, students are permitted 1000 free printed pages per calendar year. If you exceed your 1,000 free page limit during the year your account will be charged five cents for each additional sheet you print and the overage will be billed to your account in May for graduating students or August for returning students. Also, if you don’t use up your 1,000 free page quota for the year, the leftover balance does not ‘roll over’ to the next year if you’re a returning student.

Printing is controlled by “Pcounter,” a server application that tracks individual student printing use.  After a lab assistant helps you install the 3 student printers you are now ready to print at the law school.  The printers are located in the Student Computer Lab, the Boley stacks, and the Wood Hall 1st floor student study area.
