Print Service

ITS Print Service is an easy-to-use, two-step process that broadens your printing options while also conserving resources and helping the environment.

To use the service, you tag your document (establish ownership) and send it to your personal ITS Print Service queue, using any computer at the Bobst Library, as well as any computer connected to NYU-NET, including those at the ITS Academic Technology Centers and CoLabs. Then you go to any Print Station at the Bobst Library or at any ITS Academic Technology Center or CoLab; swipe or tap your NYUCard (or, optionally, a Bobst Library Print Card); and print your document on the adjacent printer.

ITS Print Grant

Each semester, you receive a new ITS Print Grant. When you swipe your NYUCard at an Print Station, 10 cents (B&W) or 75 cents (color) is deducted from your print grant for every sheet (two sides of a page) that you print. Should you use up your grant before the semester ends, you may choose to have additional printing charges deducted from your NYU Campus Cash account or Bobst Library Print Card balance.

 Eligibility Spring/Fall Summer/Winter
 Students in degree or diploma programs $50 (500 sheets)  $25 (250 sheets) 
Faculty, administrators, and staff $5 (50 sheets) $5 (50 sheets) 
 ITS Lab Access Account holders $5 (50 sheets)  $5 (50 sheets)
