OIT / Libraries Printing

Anteater ID Card

Laser printing is available in OIT labs. All lab printers are managed by the printing software system and you can release your print jobs using your UCI/Campus ID card or with a purchased Guest print card.

  • Black and white printing is 10 cents per page.
  • Double-sided printing is not available in the OIT Labs but you can go to the UPS Store located at the Student Center to print double-sided documents, wide format, custom printing, etc.
  • Double-sided printing is also available from WEPA kiosks located around campus.

Printing out highly sensitive documents in labs is generally not recommended, but if you must, please make sure to pick up the document(s) right away from the print station.  Please call 949-824-2222 to report if your sensitive document is somehow stuck or didn't print out, then we will investigate ASAP.
