Printing on Campus with SLU Public Printing


On St. Lawrence's campus, there are public copiers that can be used to print documents for class. Each student gets a printing budget of $48 annually. Black and White pages cost 6 cents per page, color pages cost 30 cents per page. This service is called SLU Public Printing. IT recommends you install SLU Public Printing onto your computer so you can print natively with the "Print" options across different apps. However, there are alternative ways to print as well. Once you have printed to SLU Public Printing, simply hold up your ID card to the card reader at any public copier until it beeps, and press the print button on the screen.
