  Printing and Copying

Printing: Printing, including color printing, is provided in the following library computing clusters:

  • The Rockefeller Library Public Computing Cluster is located on the first and second floors, of the Rockefeller Library. 
  • The Sciences Library Public Computing Cluster is located on Level A and the Mezzanine level of the Sciences Library.

All students can send documents from a cluster computer, their residence hall rooms, or from a wireless connection using the Virtual Private Network (VPN) client, to the PAW (People Against Waste) Prints queue and release them for printing at release stations next to the printers or at the CIT dispatch window. All students are given $30 in printing at the beginning of the fall semester. Once the value is used on the PAW Prints card, students can use the vending stripe on their Brown ID to pay for printing.
