    Free, bring-your-own-paper (BYOP), black-and-white, laser printers connected to PCs are located in the following areas:

    Need to buy paper?

    Laser printer paper may be purchased in the West Coast Grocery Convenience Store (WCG 105) and the Copy Center (MAT 053). Please do not use spiral notebook paper or three-hole paper in the printers. Anything other than laser printer paper will cause printer problems that could prevent you from getting that term paper turned in on time.
