Synopsis:
Printing: Cluster and library print quota information


Solution:

OIT has implemented a print quota system on all Library and OIT Cluster printers.

How many sheets can I print?
Undergraduate students are allotted 2100 B&W sheets and 200 color sheets per year. Graduate students are allotted 3000 B&W sheets and 200 color sheets per year. Faculty and Staff are not subject to a B&W print quota at this time. A sheet is defined as an actual piece of paper. This means that if if you print double-sided, you can not only save paper but make the most of your allotted quota.

How can I check how many sheets I have printed?
You can check how many B&W sheets you have printed against your quota by visiting printquota.princeton.edu. Click on Log in and enter your Princeton netID and password. Upon logging in you will see the number of sheets you have printed this year. You will also see the number of B&W and Color sheets you have printed and your remaining quota when logging into any of the Print Release Stations at OIT or Library clusters.

When does my print total reset?
Print count will be reset on an annual basis on July 1st.

What happens when I go over my print quota?
When you go over your print quota, you will be unable to login to any of the OIT print release stations. You will receive an error message stating that you are over quota. This error message will also tell you how many sheets you have printed against your quota during the current year.

What printers count against my print quota?
Printing to any OIT cluster printer or Library cluster printer will count against your print quota. Print jobs are counted against your quota once they have been released to a printer using the Print Release Stations found in OIT and Library cluster locations. You can find a full list of OIT cluster printers here: OIT Cluster Printers

Can I request additional sheets?
If you have exceeded your allotted B&W print quota, you can request that your account be allocated additional sheets to finish any printing you may need to complete. No increases will be granted for Color quota. To request additional B&W print quota you will need to contact the OIT Help Desk by calling 609-258-4357 or e-mail printquota@princeton.edu. All print quota increase requests will be reviewed by OIT staff before they are granted.
