Student Print Accounts

To ease the cost of course-related printing for students, CBS now offers all CBS undergraduate students a $10/semester print tender account for the BioCommons printer. This is automatically supplied to students via their UCard, and lets students print up to 125 pages at no cost to the printer located in the BioCommons space in Moos Tower, in the Basement Lounge (Hall) of the Biological Sciences Center, or on the third floor of the Bioloical Sciences Center in the Learning Commons.

How to Use Your Print Tender Account

For instruction on how to print to CBS printers, click here.


CBS undergraduate students are provided $10 in the fall semester and $10 in the spring semester. Any unused balance is carried over from fall to spring semesters. The remaining balance from the spring semester is then carried over through the summer until it is reset just before the fall semester. If you exceed the $10.00 tender in any given semester, prints will be charged to your Gopher Gold account balance at the discounted rate of $0.08/page.  Print tender accounts will be reset before the next academic year (balance set to $0 and then reloaded for the fall semester).

Where to Use Your Print Tender Account

  • Moos Tower - BioCommon Student Lounge (Moos 2-585)
  • Biological Sciences Center - Basement Lounge (Hall)
  • Biological Sciences Center - 3rd Floor Foundation of Biology Learning Commons
