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. As a student prints a document, 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.

Students 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
