Main Print Service

Free Printing Services

The printing facilities set up in the CSC Teaching Studio Areas (and other buildings) are solely for your academic work. You should print only materials directly related to your course work and those pages that are really needed. These services are free of charge to students and are limited by the print quota allocated to them.

  • Print Quota Allocation

    An annual print quota will be allocated in one go to new intakes and existing regular students on campus a few days before the first teaching day of Semester A. The same treatment of print quota will be allocated to new research students when their computer accounts are created. No additional print quota will be allocated for the Summer Term and Term Break. This quota is non-refundable, non-transferable, and cannot be carried forward. This print quota already covers the loss of quota due to paper jam, toner low, stuck of print queue and the like.

  • Local laser printers

    Each CSC Teaching Studio is installed with small printer (HP LaserJet). Users can select it through the Work Desk Menu. The print quota will be deducted when users print to these small printers. Students must bring along their own printing paper.

  • Express laser printers

    Express laser printers are located near CSC Service Counter.
    One printer is attached to each workstation and specially set up for printing small print jobs. Their uses are subject to a maximum time session as specified in the booking ticket. Booking for these printers can be made using the local booking system located near these printers. The print quota will be deducted when users print to these small printers. Students must bring along their own printing paper.
