What are the printing prices and policies?

  • Print costs for single-sided b&w letter-size pages are $0.12 ($0.23 per sheet for double-sided printing) or $0.50 for single-sided color ($1.00 for double-sided) letter-sized printing.
  • University of Washington students can use their Husky Card to pay for printing. Husky Card holders can add value to their card either online using a credit card, or with cash at the vending machine in the Library. (Contact Housing and Food Services on the Seattle Campus for Husky Card account issues at 206-543-7222.)
  • Cascadia students and public patrons can purchase and add value to a Dawg Prints Cards from the vending machine in the Campus Library Information Commons. (Cascadia students may already have a printing allocation they can use in the Learning Center, or at printers located in Cascadia buildings, as determined by fees they may have paid.)
  • Refunds are not available on the Bothell Campus. If you experience any printing problems in the Library, please ask a Student Technology Consultant for assistance. To request a refund credit, go to the Dawg Prints refund page.
  • For more information on the Dawg Prints program, including system status alerts, how to print from your own laptop while on campus, the MobilePrint program, and all Dawg Prints printer locations, visit the Dawg Prints website.

How do I print?*

  1. On Library computers, select File and Print in whichever application you are printing from. Select the printer appropriate for your print job. You MUST provide a UW NetID or specific owner name in the "Print Job Details" dialog. (You will enter this NetID or name at the Release station to see your print jobs!)
  2. Do NOT print MS Office documents (Excel spreadsheets, Word Docs, etc.) or PDF's from any web browser!  Open the file in the appropriate application and print from there.  (Web browsers may cause format issues that prevent the pages from printing.)
  3. If you want to print from your own laptop, you can use the MobilePrint feature (UW NetID required), or go to https://finance.uw.edu/c2/printing-copying/dawg-prints-printer-locations and type "Bothell" in the keywords box.  Install the driver for your Operating System, and print as above. (For issues with driver installs, see the Troubleshooting page)
  4. Go to the appropriate Print Release Station (Color Printing only available in the Library, so prints submitted to the Color Printer will only show up on the Color Printer Release Station).
  5. Type in your UW NetID or the owner name you used when you submitted the job.  Then, when prompted, swipe your Husky Card or a Dawg Prints Card for payment.  Only your print job(s) will be listed in the queue associated with the specific UW NetID or name you entered. (Print jobs expire after 24 hours)
  6. Select your print job, and verify the correct number of pages and the correct amount being charged!
  7. Click the Print button. Collect your printed pages and verify that you only have the pages you printed!
  8. Select the Logoff button to keep others from using the money on your card account!

How do I make a photocopy?

  1. There are no photocopiers in the Campus Library for public or student use.  See the Scanners tab for more information.
  2. Staff and Faculty with their own accounting code may be able to use the Managed Print Services Copier in the Library Administration Suite.

Did you know....

Cascadia students pre-pay quarterly for printing at printers located in the Cascadia buildings, including the Learning Center (CC2-060), and at breakout areas in CC1, CC2, and CC3 that include both computers and printers.  A Photocopier that accepts cash is also available in the Learning Center.
