Copying & Printing at UBC Okanagan Library

There is a one-stop solution for adding money to your pay-for-print account: a station located next to the photocopiers on the first floor of the library. The station allows you to add money to your account for both photocopying and printing. It accepts coins and older bills, but currently does not take new bills.

Three black-and-white printers, two black-and-white photocopiers, and one colour photocopier/printer are available for student use. For instructions on double sided printing and other green printing tips, see our Green Printing Guide.
