PCs in the Computer Lab are connected to a networked self-service printer that can print either black and white or color. Black and white copies are 10 cents per page; color copies are 75 cents per page. Payment may be made with a UA CatCard or coins/cash. Add value to your CatCard by using the computers in the lab.
