Black and white printing is 5¢ per page; duplex is 8¢. Color printing is available in the Computer Lab only. Color printing is 10¢ per page 16¢ for duplex.

The printers also function as scanners.  Documents are scanned as a PDF or jpeg and sent to an email account. There is no charge to use the scanner function on the printers.
