Print Conservation

The computer labs at Rutgers have saved more than 120 million sheets of paper – six acres of trees – during the first eight years of the print conservation program.

Rutgers Legacy

Every January and July, $30 is posted to the printing account of each Rutgers student, faculty and staff member. When a document is printed, the account is charged 4 cents per sheet of paper if the document is printed on a black-and-white printer. Documents printed on a color printer are 25 cents per sheet.

Those who use up the $30 before the end of the six-month allotment period can pay for additional printing with their RU Express Card Camden & New Brunswick) or their Raider Card (Newark). To learn more, check print usage or add funds, visit


Student provisioning follows school registration.  Print quotas are determined by individual schools.

Poster printing is available at both the Newark and Piscataway Computer Labs. Price varies by size.
