Printing Overview

Public

As a student, you can print from your personal laptops to public printers at the Law School from the wired or Wi-Fi networks. To use these printers, you are required to install a print client to verify your account status. All print clients can be downloaded from the Law School IT website at: https://www.law.uchicago.edu/students/life/IT/guides. You have access to your print account from the web while using the Law School wired or Wi-Fi network. UCLAW credentials are used to gain access to the web interface at: https://www.law.uchicago.edu/printaccount. All students are given a $156.00 credit per academic year.

Print Job Cost:

  • $0.13 per printed side when printing on 8½ x 11-inch paper to a B/W printer 
  • $0.18 per printed side when printing on 8½ x 11-inch paper to the color printer
  • $0.26 per printed side when printing on 11 x 17-inch paper to a B/W printer 
  • $0.36 per printed side when printing on 11 x 17-inch paper to the color printer 

** Duplex print jobs count as two sheets**

** Pricing subject to change without notice**

Printer Location:

  • B/W printers are on the 3rd, 4th, 5th, & 6th floors in the Library, in the center area of each floor
  • Color printer is on the 3rd floor inside the Computer Lab

If you run out of credit at any time, any subsequent print jobs to the public printers will be automatically denied and deleted.

Students, Journal Members, and Research Assistants may install one or all of the printers they are allowed to access on your personal laptops.

Print Cards 

The Pre-Paid Print Card system allows you to purchase print cards from two locations at the law school in case your print quota is exhausted.  You will be able to redeem the cards while using the web printing interface.  It is your responsibility to manage your own print account.  Other print options are available in the event printing is denied due to quota issues.  Visit https://printing.uchicago.edu for more information.  Pre-Paid print cards should be purchased only when your print quota is getting low.  Pre-paid print cards can be purchased from the Library Circulation Desk or the Law School Copy Center.

Print cards purchased during the course of any academic year are valid only until the end of that academic year.  Print cards will expire and will not be valid after July 31 of any single academic year.

Print cards are NON-REFUNDABLE

  • Once a print card is purchased, it is not refundable even if it is not used. Purchase only the amount you need to ensure printer privileges are not automatically denied when your page quota reaches zero.

Print cards are NON-TRANSFERABLE

  • When a print card is purchased and the code is entered/redeemed, the entire amount of the pre-paid card is added to your account.  Paid balance CANNOT be transferred between student accounts.

Print cards are NON-NEGOTIABLE

  • Pre-paid print cards can be used EXCLUSIVELY with the UCLAW Print system only for the purpose of adding credit to a printing account.  Pre-paid print cards have no cash value and cannot be used in any other function.

Any positive quota balance, whether part of the original printing credit OR the result of adding a pre-paid print card, will EXPIRE on July 31 of any academic year.  ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS will be issued for any positive print quota balance remaining at the end of any academic year.

Printing Errors

If you have an issue printing that involves a print job you can request a refund at: https://www.law.uchicago.edu/printaccount (uses UCLAW username).

Bloomberg, LexisNexis, & Westlaw Printing

Documents printed from these services to the Law School printers will be charged to your printing credit.

Journals 

Current Journal Members of Law Review, CJIL, or Legal Forum are entitled to print to their journal’s printers without affecting their personal printing credit.  Journal Members have additional printers available for their use from any journal computer.  Printer availability will vary depending on the journal membership of a computer being used.  Student should use the journal printers for any print jobs associated with journal tasks.  Journal Members may print to their journal printers from their personal laptops.  Special printer names marked with the prefix JRN_ are available for Journal Members.  The JRN_ print queues are available only from a student’s personal laptop and correspond to the same physical device as the non-prefix printer name.

EXAMPLE:

lawrev_prntr_01

This is the regular printer name of the journal printer available only to LawReview members from all LawReview Journal computers.

JRN_lawrev_prntr_01

This printer name would be available only to current LawReview members from their personal laptops. While the name is different, it is the same physical printer as lawrev_prntr_01.

Any print jobs submitted to a printer with the JRN_ prefix WILL NOT count towards a student’s personal print quota.  It is the Journal Member’s responsibility to use the journal printers when sending print jobs associated with their journal assignments.  Personal printing should be submitted to public printer queues and will be billed at the regular rateNO REFUNDS will be given if Journal Members use incorrect printer queues for Journal print jobs and have their personal quotas charged.  Student Journal Coordinator’s may audit the use of the JRN_ printer usage to ensure that print jobs submitted to these print queues are part of a Journal assignment.  Journal Membership status is evaluated periodically to ensure only current Journal Members have access to the JRN_ printers.  The journal printers that have the JRN_ option enabled are listed below in the Journals section of the Law School Printers part of this guide.  To successfully use any of these printers, a student must be a current member of the Journal organization indicated next to each printer name.  Please note that when a student’s journal association ends, any print jobs submitted to the JRN_ printers will be denied and automatically deleted.

Research Assistant

Current Research Assistants are entitled to print to the public student printers without affecting their personal printing credit. This is done to prevent RAs being charged for printing as part of their RA assignments when such print jobs are submitted to the public printers.  Research Assistants have additional print queues available for their use from any public computer.  These printers are marked with the prefix RA_ and correspond to the same physical printers as normally used by all students.

EXAMPLE:

3rd_prntr_pub01

This is the regular printer name for a public printer located in the Computer Lab.

RA_3rd_prntr_pub01

This printer name would be available only to current RAs.  While the name is different, it is thesame physical printer as 3rd_prntr_pub01.

Any print jobs submitted to a printer with the RA_ prefix WILL NOT count towards a student’s print quota.  It is the Research Assistants responsibility to use the RA_ printers when sending print jobs associated with their RA assignment.  Personal printing should be submitted to regular printer queues and will be billed at the regular rate.  NO REFUNDS will be given if RAs use incorrect printer queues for RA print jobs and have their personal print quotas charged.  RA Advisors/Faculty may audit the use of the RA_ printer usage to ensure that print jobs submitted to these print queues are a part of the RAs current assignment.  RA status is evaluated periodically to ensure only current research assistants have access to the RA_ printers.  The printers that have the RA_ option enabled are listed below in the Research Assistant section of the Law School Printers part of this guide.  These printers are added to an RA’s profile automatically when using any of the Law Schools UCLAW public computers.  RAs are not allowed to print to the main faculty/staff printers.  RAs should use the “RA_” printers.  Please note that when your RA assignment ends, any print jobs submitted to the RA_ printers will be denied and automatically deleted.

Clinic Clerks

Clinic Clerks are entitled to print to the three public clinic printers without affecting their personal quota. Clinic Clerks may print to three public clinic printers from their personal laptops.  Any print jobs submitted to a printer with the clk_ prefix WILL NOT count towards a student’s personal print quota.  It is the Clinic Clerk’s responsibility to use the clinic printers when sending print jobs associated with their clinic clerk tasks.  Personal printing should be submitted to public printer queues and will be billed at the regular rateNO REFUNDS will be given if Clinic Clerks use incorrect printer queues for clinic print jobs and have their personal quotas charged.  Clinic Coordinators may audit the use of the clk_printer usage to ensure that print jobs submitted to these print queues are part of a clinic clerk assignments.  Clinic Clerk Membership status is evaluated periodically to ensure only current Clinic Clerks have access to the clk_printers.  The three clinic printers that can be used by Clinic Clerks are listed below in the Clinic Clerk section of the Law School Printers part of this guide.  To successfully use any of these printers, a student must be a current member of the Clinic Clerk Group (separate from various clinical project groups). Being part of a clinic project group does not grant automatic access to the clinic printers.  Please note that when a student’s clinic clerk association ends, any print jobs submitted to the clk_printers will be denied and automatically deleted.

Install Print Client: PaperCut

The print client software must be installed and actively running for print jobs to be successful to any of the Law School’s printers.  Print jobs submitted to these printers without the print client being installed or actively running will not print and will be deleted.  The print client requires the use of your UCLAW credentials.  These are the same credentials used to access the 3rd floor computers.  If you do not know your UCLAW credentials, please contact the Help Desk at helpdesk@law.uchicago.edu.  Your personal print account (https://www.law.uchicago.edu/printaccount) can be accessed from a web browser while you are connected to the Law School’s wired or Wi-Fi network.
