Currently, Fairfield University offers full time students $25 of free prints and part-time students $5 per 3 credit class. We have been using Pharos for print management and have decided to make the move to WEPA. We are revisiting our "free prints" policy and I was wondering what other schools are doing.

Hi Debbie,

 

We use PaperCut for print management at Wentworth. We have printers in classrooms around campus that support 8.5x11 and 11x17 Black and White laser prints. We have a Print Center open to all Students, Faculty and Staff that allows for Color Laser 8.5x11 and 11x17 prints as well as high speed large format plotters. The print center is mainly used by our students in a Design major.

UT Arlington went with a Pay-As-You-Go printing model last year (http://www.uta.edu/oit/cs/computerlabs/pharos-printing/printing.php) utilizing Pharos. When faced with budget cuts, we really had to focus our attention on services that are essential to the University's mission. In addition, we wondered if there was more we could do to support our University's sustainability effort. Eliminating free printing enabled us to maintain staffing to support students, while also decreasing wasted printing by forcing students to realize the full cost of printing. We set prices to cover the cost of replacing printers, maintaining Pharos software, and repairing/supplying printers. Our current price per page is at http://www.uta.edu/oit/cs/computerlabs/pharos-printing/prices.php.
We went with PaperCut.....works great, and the price is really hard to beat..... When we surveyed other colleges and universities (about 2 years ago?) - what we found was that the policies related to student printing were all over the board. So, like everyone else - we had to make it up as we went along. What we wound up with is in the FAQs listed below: http://www.cnm.edu/depts/academicaffairs/papercut/papercut-frequently-as... Hope this helps, Michael
At Regis University 1 - Do you have managed print services for your students? - Yes we have 2 - If you do, how much do you charge per print? - $0.07/page B&W $0.14/page Color 3 - Do you offer your students free prints? If so how many (either in copies or $$)Depending upon the program with either 1000 or 1500 pages / semester. John Twigg Manager, Field Technology Regis university Denver, CO

Good point......one thing to note: We didn't head down the path of "print management" to recoup money - it was really more of a straight forward "green initiative". What we did was run PaperCut for 2 terms in order to establish a baseline number of pages printed for the average student. Then - when we knew what the "bell curve" looked like, we set the allowed number of pages (ie, "free printing"), to something akin to what the 80% - 90% of students were already using. That way - on average, we only have to inconvenience those students that might fall in to the remaining 10% - 20%......and a lot of those students quickly learned how to manage their paper account balances, OR, they had to go to the PaperCut kiosks and "recharge" their accounts to get more printing. We don't have to track anyone down.... Hope this helps...... M
Michael--thanks for your response. We entered into this only to be good stewards of paper usage--not to make money. It is the 5% or so of students that we charge for being over quota that cause the management headaches. We do not have an easy and clean way to do the charge-back, and we do not see any money that ever is collected. I am beginning to think it is not worth it anymore. I think using PaperCut to help manage student printing is still useful, but going through all the work to charge a subset of students $20 in over quota printing when they pay $30,000/year to go to college seems a bit crazy.

The "recharging" of their account sounds like an interesting way of doing it--though I do not know how we would accomplish that the way we are currently set up.

We use Papercut in our public labs and we have unlimited black/white printing with a policy (http://www.uni.edu/its/policies/scac-student-computer-advisory-committee...) which was created/endorsed by our Student Computing Advisory Committee. Black/white printing is supported via a portion of their student computer fee. Monthly I get a spreadsheet with print counts by user and I sort that by the amount of print and send "nastygrams" to those printing more than 500 sheets in the month. The number of "nastygrams" is usually from 10-20 with 6-7,000 unique students using print per month. The intent is to make sure/remind them that they are expected to be as conservative as possible with this "free resource". I have to add that reaction and cooperation on conserving has generally been very positive. My take is the administrative overhead and hassle of individual charging would drive the total cost of printing up significantly plus the hassle free and unlimited printing is very popular. During summer orientation we also take the opportunity to explain this to the student and also to their parents. Parents are very appreciative of not having to supply a printer for their student as we encourage them to start without one and see how/if it works out as they can always get one later.

At Trinity Western University we moved from an honor system (back in the dark ages ... about 10 years ago) to the Papercut system. The benefits of using such a system were immediate, dropping our paper consumption by close to 75% within the first year and maintaining a reasonable level since. What we noticed was that students had been printing entire web sites, articles, etc. but since they only really wanted a couple of pages from it they would take the needed pages and leave the rest at the printer. That situation no longer happens. Our goals with print management included both environmental and cost recovery. Facing all sorts of budget cuts, as seems the norm across many universities, we were able to establish the print system as a self-contained unit ... asking for no further budget from the University and yet able to provide improvements and replacements when needed. The system is set up to be a net zero over time with all funds coming in for printing being used to provide printing services. Specific answers to the questions: 1. We use Papercut for managed print services in all student labs. 2. We charge .08 per B/W and .20 per Color (this cost covers paper, consumables, repairs, replacements, and the costs related to running papercut including licensing and hardware) 3. We use the ability of Papercut to run a negative balance and allow all students to print up to the -$5.00 mark at which point they need to top up their account. In effect, this gives all students an initial $5.00 credit (we don't require students to repay a negative balance at any time). Some departments also choose to add funds to the accounts of students taking specific courses and we accommodate those requests on an as needed basis. Under this model we do not have to chase students down to repay their balance although every once in a while a student comes in demanding that they be able to pay off their debt :). Cheers!

Actually - the hardware to setup the PaperCut recharge kiosks was recommended on their website, or by their tech support.

Adelphi University is using  pCounter currently in a Novell environment (migrating soon to Windows AD) 

We  charge .05 /sheet  B&W and  .15 /sheet for  color. 

Students were allowed 500  sheets  per semester Spring and Fall,   250  for summer.  (adjustments in the works) 

There is a Pcounter kiosk where they can  recharge their account (cash only) if they run out. 

Based on what others have  stated I think our  cost of color pages might be too low. 

Also note that  we charge per sheet, so a duplex printed sheet cost the same as a single side page to  encourage the students to  save more paper.

When faced with budget cuts, we really had to focus our attention on services that are essential to the University's mission. In addition, we wondered if there was more we could do to support our University's sustainability effort. Eliminating free printing enabled us to maintain staffing to support students, while also decreasing wasted printing by forcing students to realize the full cost of printing. We set prices to cover the cost of replacing printers, maintaining Pharos software, and repairing/supplying printers. Our current price per page is at http://www.uta.edu/oit/cs/computerlabs/pharos-printing/prices.php.
