Print Conservation

The computer labs at Rutgers have saved more than 140 million sheets of paper – eight acres of trees – during the first nine years of the print conservation program.


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. To learn more, check print usage or add funds to your account, visit


RBHS students also get an additional print quota, determined by individual schools, which allows them to print within the RBHS labs.

Poster printing is available at both the Newark and Piscataway specialized RBHS labs. Price per poster is $1 per linear inch.
