Printing in the Pharmacy Building

See Printing in the Pharmacy Building 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 SPPS printing allocation, you will need to use UB Print Anywhere (powered by Wepa). Quota and print kiosk location information can be found at:

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

  • Room 260: Gumtow Library
  • Room 252: Model Pharmacy
  • Room 268: Cecil and Violet Newton Computer Lab
  • Room 345: Milo Gibaldi Computational Room
  • Room 340: 3rd Floor Hallway
  • Room 440: 4th Floor Hallway

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.
