Where and how can I print in colour?

All the printers the library will let you print in colour. However, you have to either send your print job via email or use a library computer - you cannot use the online form. See full instructions for printing.

What happens if something goes wrong?

Contact the IT Help Desk on the 4th floor of the library, or contact The Print Shop.

Where can I load my Campus Card?

You can load your card online, at the Campus Card Office in the University Centre, at the Residence Commons Desk, or at The Print Shop in 102 Robertson Hall.

There are also self-serve Cash2Card machines located on the main floor and 4th floor of the library near the printers. Here, you can load your card with cash denominations from $1 to $20. Machines are also available near the Residence Desk and the Campus Card Office.

Where are the staplers?

There are two staplers at the Library Services Desk. They can easily accommodate up to 30 sheets of paper. (Be prepared: one of them makes an extremely loud bang!)
