Printing quota and price list

Basic quota is 4 € and it is paid by the University. If needed, you can buy more in the web store. Price for one page: black-and-white 0,025 €, color 0,136 €.

A printing quota is student's printing balance in euro, and it is a sum of a basic quota and an additional quota.

These terms are in use when we are talking about what you will get with your quota:

SHEET = both sides of paper

  • dual printing (default)
  • size could be A4 or A3 (default is always A4)

PAGE = one side of paper

  • printed only on one side of paper
  • size could be A4 or A3 (default is always A4)

Basic quota

The basic quota is the euro-denominated part of the student's printing quota paid by the university.

  • At the moment 4 € will be the start situation of new student accounts too.
  • At the beginning of each term 4 € will be added to the student's basic quota in case she/he has used print services during the previous term. This setting is made 1.1. and 1.8.
  • So the basic quota is not expanded if it has not at all been used during the previous term.
  • The addition of basic quota does not affect the possible additional quota which will remain unchanged when the terms change.
  • The basic quota that was not used is not paid in any situation as money to the student!
  • The students of the Open University do not have the basic quota.

Basic quota is enough for printing of :

  • 80 black-and-white sheeds, which are printed with black on both sides of paper. This is a default setting when printing from workstation.
  • 160 black-and-white pages, which are printed with black on one side of paper.
  • 14 color sheeds, which are printed with colors on both sides of paper
  • 29 color pages, which are printed with colors on one side of paper

Additional quota
