Printing from Personal Laptops

There are several printers around campus provided for student use. Staff, check with your department about printing from your personal computer.

Most printers are black and white. A color printers is available downstairs in the Library near Media Services - use the WhalePrint system to print color.

All printing is double-sided because of Alaska Statute, Sec 44.99.020, which requires government institutions to print on both sides of the paper. There is no direct charge for printing to most printers, so please do not over-use the printers by printing multiple copies or large documents.

This new service provides the same printing capabilities while providing a more efficient method for tracking and billing print jobs.  WhalePrint is currently available downstairs in the library. For support, please contact the Classroom Technology & Library Support Desk or Media Services staff.

How the WhalePrint System Works

  1. Users print from their workstation to the appropriate laser printer. 
  2. Visit the Print Release workstation near the printer you selected. 
  3. Swipe your departmental or student WhaleCard at the release workstation, select the print job from the list and click "print" to release the print job. 
    • Departments may elect to leave a copy of their WhaleCard at Media Services to expedite print job processing.  Please contact Media Services for more information.    
    • All students receive a complimentary $12 allotment per semester.  
    • Cost per letter page of printing: B/W: $.10 Color: $.25.

You will only be charged for print jobs actually released. 

Tracking and billing of print jobs will now be managed by the UAS Business Office. Students can recharge their WhaleCard at the UAS Student Accounts Office (Novatney Rm 215).
