Printing | University of Portland


Student Printing Services

Each dorm is equipped with printers for student use. Students may also use personal printers by connecting directly via USB or wirelessly to their personal computers. No personal printers will be allowed on the UP network. In addition, students can utilize printers in the open computer labs located in Shiley Hall Room 208 and the Clark Library. 

  • Students will receive $10 per semester print credit, including summer term.
  • Laser printing costs $.05 per page and color printing costs $.15 per page.
  • If a student depletes their balance, money may be added to their account by using one of the add value stations located in Shiley 208 and the Clark Library.
  • Students should manage their account balances. University provided balances do not carry over to the next school year and are re-set in August.
  • All student added cash deposits will carry over from year to year, but no refunds upon graduation are allowed.
  • Remember to log off the computer when you are finished as the print service is directly connected to your network log-on.
  • All printing will automatically default to two-sided and charges will accrue for each printed side. Students may opt to print one-sided but will be charged per printed sheet.
  • If there is a printer error (e.g., paper jam, low toner), please promptly contact the library front desk or computer lab assistant to have your print job refunded.
  • Refunds will not be given for non-printer errors such as blank pages at the end of a document, canceled print jobs, printing the wrong document, or spelling mistakes.
  • For additional assistance, please contact the Help Desk at or by calling 503.943.7000.
