Yes, you may print from computers in the Library. Computers in CL-200, CL-203, CL-207, will print to the printers in CL-203. Computers in CL-237 will print to the printer in CL-237.

At the beginning of each semester, student login accounts are credited with 250 free sheets for black ink printing for combined use in the Library (and DH-110, CL-129, the Learning Assistance Center, Room RCF-340).

The printers are configured by default for duplex (double-sided) printing.  Therefore, the maximum number of printed pages at no cost could be up to 500 if all prints are duplex.  In keeping with the college's goal of reducing paper waste, HCC faculty accept duplex printed assignments and papers.  If you prefer to print single-sided prints, that can be done by adjusting the printer properties or by contacting the lab staff for assistance.  Alumni and guests are not  given a free paper credit.

Carefully manage your printing to be sure your request to print is what you want.  The printing system displays information in several places to advise you of your print job size and balance of free pages remaining.  We do not credit students for lost pages due to your error.

After reaching the 250 sheet limit, pay for subsequent prints using a purchased Debitek card.  There is a vending machine located in the Library for purchasing Debitek cards and adding value to the cards.  The cost of additional black ink prints is 10¢ per single-sided print and 15¢ per duplex.
