Introduction to Systems


All printing at the department is managed by the UNIX system. For each print job, information on the associated user, the number of pages, the name of the printer, the time, and other information is saved. This information is used to manage the allotment of printing resources to each user.

Print quotas

The print quota of a user is the number of pages which that user is permitted to print. Each student has a limit on the number of pages which may be printed, the amount being based upon the number of course credits for which the student is enrolled at the department. Currently, the allocation is twenty pages per credit. Certain courses are more "printing intensive" than others; for such courses additional allocations may be provided.

Print quotas are not used for employees.


In each computer laboratory there is a printer which is accessible for students in that laboratory; however, in case of need, it is also possible to use a printer in a different laboratory. Employees of the department also may use the various printers which are located in the office areas.

To install a printer on your own computer, follow the instructions on:
