New U-Print Service Coming in Winter 2013
Beginning in Winter 2013 term, registered UM-Dearborn students will be able to print up to 500 pages free per term (Winter, Fall, Spring/Summer) on the new U-Print system. U-Print provides a standard printing service for students in all schools and colleges. It replaces the variety of different quotas that were previously used.
What does this mean for students?
U-Print is a new networked printing service that will allow students to print up to 500 pages free (black/white). Each term, registered students will be allocated a quota that can be used in all campus labs and the library. It also includes the FollowU feature, which lets them send their printing to a cloud-based print server where it will be held until they release it at one of the designated printers across campus.
How does U-Print work?
Every term that students enroll in classes, they will be credited with $25 on the U-Print system. Each time they print from a lab or library computer, their account will be debited $.05 for black/white or $.30 for color pages. They can release work immediately to a printer in the lab where they are located. Or they can hold it in the FollowU cloud server and release it later that day at any of the U-Print printers located throughout the campus. If they need to add more printing to their account, it can be done quickly on the web with a credit card or they can add funds at the Cashier's Office.
You will be hearing more about this at the beginning of Winter term, and instructions will be available on the ITS website.
