According to Computer Services, "All currently-enrolled Temple University students receive a free printing quota." But free always comes with a price.
Did you notice that the cost to print a page in our computer labs is now only 7 cents, instead of 10? However, after we use up our printing quota of 300 pages (funded by the $125 technology fee included in our tuition), the rate jumps back to 10 cents per page. That's the fine print.
So now it's more important than ever to print double sided and watch how much you print, especially as midterms approach. And when printing PowerPoint presentations or class notes, print multiple slides per page, or multiple pages per sheet if your eyes can stand it.
It seems that this is Temple's way of balancing the budget.
