Computer Labs

See Computer Labs for information on Kapoor computing sites and other campus computing sites.


The Center for Educational Innovation provides opportunities workshops, speakers, programs, discussion groups, and consultations for faculty, staff, and students. These services are intended to help the teaching and learning process, develop skills and methods to enhance teaching and learning, and include the latest developments in information technology and media to enrich course content and presentation and enhance the student’s educational experience.


See Kapoor Hall Printer Mapping Instructions 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 during each of the 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. All balances carry over from fall to spring semester only. 

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
