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.

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 will pay for additional printing with their Raider Card. To learn more, check print usage or add funds, visit
