St. Ambrose University transitioned to a managed print environment prior to the 2010-11 school year in an effort to reduce waste and cut campus printing costs. Ths successful effort has provided campus with more environmentally friendly and cost effective printing.
Additional realized benefits include: Secure, confidential printing
Print costs are determined by printer selection. Each lab is configured to default to the nearest black-and-white printer if available. Color printers will be designated by the "Color" tag
Print jobs that fail to properly print due to a printer mechanical defect will be issued a credit refund. This includes pages printed with visual defects such as streaking, faded ink, or failure to print. Jobs printed in error due to user oversight will not be refunded. Please be sure you verify page totals before confirming print jobs.
Please be prepared to provide the IT department staff with details of printer location, date/time, problem description (errors), Filename of printed document, and bring in the misprinted pages if applicable to the IT service desk. Refunds will be provided on a case-by-case basis within two business days.
