Print Quotas

In order to mitigate frivolous printing and abuse of department printers, print quotas have been established for all public-access department color printers.

All users are limited to 200 color pages per month. The quota resets automatically at 11:59pm on the last day of the month. Users can request additional pages by contacting the helpdesk. We will review the monthly printouts and determine if a one-time quota increase is warranted. 

Users are permitted to do whatever they want with their 200 pages, however quota increases will not be granted to those who have used their pages for personal projects. 

**Quota increases will not be granted to PhD students for printing their thesis. As per the PhD Handbook printing of the thesis should be paid for by the advisor and performed by a print specialist such as Tartan Ink or FedEx Office
