Printing in Kapoor Hall

See Printing at Kapoor Hall to enable printing from personal computers to the public printers in rooms 260, 340 and 440.

All UB SPPS students receive an allocation equivalent to 1,000 single-sided pages  fall and spring semesters. When a student prints to any printer connected to our internal print server (Klonopin), the print job is subtracted from their quota. 

Student print quotas will not roll-over from semester to semester; you will receive a new quota each semester.

Once you exhaust your printing allocation, you will need to use iprint@ub at any UB public computing lab. The iprint@ub allocation is the dollar equivalent of 650 single sided pages for the fall and spring semesters, and 200 single sided pages for summer session registrants. Allocations roll over between semesters, but not between academic years. Should iprint@ub allocations be exhausted, additional pages can be purchased using Campus Cash, or copier debit cards in the libraries.

The following printers can be accessed from personal and lab workstation computers:

  • K130: Gumtow Library
  • K252: Model Pharmacy
  • K268: Cecil and Violet Newton Computer Lab
  • K345: Milo Gibaldi Computational Room
  • K340: 3rd Floor Lounge
  • K440: 4th Floor Lounge

For Pharmaceutical Sciences graduate students: the Departmental photocopier and printers are not to be used for copying and printing personal items. It should be used only for departmental activities, which include your research work, but not your individual course work, unless specifically approved by a faculty member. If you are unsure, please check with your advisor.

UB provides comprehensive information for all campus based IT services and support areas including: account information, wi-fi, teaching technologies, file storage and sharing, hardware, software, other campus based computing sites, email, calendars and social media.
