Users can print from lab computers or their own laptops by adding the printer at <> and installing the appropriate Xerox driver.

User accounts will be created for every student enrolled in an EP/GD Lab course, as well as for students in ART 140 and Senior Thesis. For each course lab fee paid, a student may print up to 100 color or black and white impressions (a print on a singe page side) on either size paper.
