Printing

Black and white prints cost $.07 per page and color prints cost $.54 per page. Students are charged for the pages they print, using their Bearcat Campus Card.

The wepa service was recommended by university-wide IT Governance, which includes students, faculty and staff, as a replacement for Uniprint. The wepa system includes a universal print queue, so you can print from wherever you are and pick up your prints from any wepa station on campus.

At the Academic Health Center, computers in the following locations operate on this system:

  • Health Sciences Library
  • College of Medicine (COM) medical student lounge
  • COM graduate student lounge
  • COM E-level 24 hour computer lab
  • COM Student Affairs computer lab
