Printing Quotas

Coursework students enrolled in the School of ITEE are eligible to use School printers for their work, in accordance with the School's guidelines on usage conditions for laboratories and facilities.

Students are either given five pages of print quota per ITEE enrolled course (after the HECS census date) to reimburse the costs for printing a course profile or will be provided with a free course profile print facility on the web.

Extra print quota can be purchased - please refer to the Purchasing Extra Quota section on this page. Any unused start up quota will expire at the end of each semester. Extra print quota that is purchased by students will be carried over for as long as the student has a valid ITEE student network account. Any unused quota will not be refunded.
