Students– did you know that you know that you can get 10 free pages of computer printing in the library per day? You can, and there’s no catch– with your current ID in hand, just go to the computer lab in the main campus library. Our lab is down the stairs inside the library and immediately to your right.
Durham Tech offers 10 free pages of black and white printing for current students in both the ERC main campus library lab and in the Wynn Center computer lab. Both labs require current Durham Tech IDs.
It is quick and easy to get your ID or your updated ID sticker at Campus Security in Building 8. There is no cost to get an ID or sticker, except if you are replacing a lost ID (the replacement cost is $10).
Need to print more than 10 pages? Yes, sure, you can do that! The cost is 5 cents for each additional page over your first 10 pages. You can also print upstairs for 5 cents per page for every page.
How does it work? Easy! Just bring your current Durham Tech ID, which you’ll need to show at both the door of the library and again at the door of the lab. In the lab, log in to our computers using your Web Advisor username. Once you send your print jobs, the ERC computer lab monitor will release up to 10 pages for free and you will pick them up right there in the lab.
If you print more than 10 pages, the lab monitor will give you a bill, which you will pay at the front desk upstairs in the library. Then library staff will then release your print job and you will retrieve it in the lab.
Some questions we are frequently asked about lab printing:
Can I get my 10 free pages on the upstairs computers?
No. Free printing is available downstairs in the lab only.
Can I pick up my print jobs upstairs?
No. We can’t change the print job destination to upstairs.
Can I print double-sided in the computer lab?
No. The downstairs printers do not have that option.
Can I print in color from downstairs?
Yes, just select a color printer from the menu when you send your job. Cost is 25 cents per page.
Can I pay for additional pages or for color print jobs using a debit or credit card?
Sorry, we can accept only cash to pay for print jobs.
Can I print in the ERC lab without my current student ID?
No, you must have your current Durham Tech ID with you every time you enter the lab. The lab monitors cannot look you up or accept other forms of ID. If you are in the library without your ID using your one time library courtesy pass, you can still print at the computers upstairs for just 5 cents per page.
Do you have any questions? Let us know. We look forward to seeing you in the library!
