Printing Guidelines for Open Labs

Listed below are several guidelines for printing on campus. These guidelines are also posted next to lab printers.

  • All printing must be school related.
  • All Conestoga College students, faculty and staff have a Print Balance of $60 attached to their ONEcard.
  • This Print Balance renews at the beginning of every semester. 
  • Maximum print job size is 50 print pages  (50 Pages single-sided prints, 25 double sided prints)
  • Maximum number of copies per print job is 2.
  • If you need to print more than 50 print pages, break your document down into smaller print jobs.
  • Where possible, practice paper conservation:
    • Use double sided printing
    • Print multiple pages on a single sheet

All print jobs are recorded. Conestoga College reserves the right to restrict a user's printing if inappropriate printing is occurring.

Printing Rates

All students are allotted a $60.00 Non-Refundable Print Balance at the beginning of each semester. Once your Non-Refundable Print Credits reach ZERO – print charges will start deducting from your CONDOR CASH (ONECARD) account.

To continue printing, add funds to your ONECARD
