Printing Policy for current Caltech students, faculty and staff
Free-printing allowance: $25 per calendar quarter
10¢ per sheet for black and white
20¢ per sheet for color
Two-sided printing (aka ‘duplex’), where supported, is at no additional cost per sheet.
Maximum single print-job size (because of printer limitations) will be 200 pages or 100MB, whichever is less.
Charges exceeding the free-printing allowance will be charged to your Bursar’s account or to a PTA account at the end of the calendar quarter. All printing will be charged.
Printing Policy for other borrowers
If you hold a Library Guest account, you are prohibited from printing.
Policy revised: March 5, 2013
Duplex printing is only supported at the Sherman Fairchild Library.

The library strongly encourages patrons to monitor their printing allowance. Patrons should print only for themselves. If a file must be printed for each member of a group, please inform group members of the file's network location, and let each print their own copy using their personal printing allowance.
Excessive printing may result in the library contacting patrons to ensure understanding of the policy.
