Pay Printing in the LARC

The Learning and Research Commons provides access to Creative Communications' pay printing system, colloquially referred to as 'Pharos.'

By default, all Learning and Research Commons computers print to the UW Tacoma Double Sided print queue. The printers are located on the first and second floor of the Snoqualmie building.

If you want to print single-sided, simply unselect the "double sided" check box in the print dialog.

Most people know about the printer on the 1st floor but the Teaching and Learning Center also has a release station in their area, if you see a queue forming at the printer downstairs, try the printer upstairs!

To pay for these jobs you will need to add money to your Husky Card (Student ID) either by adding cash to the card at the LARC's add-value station which is located near the printer on the 1st floor, or by adding funds online with a credit card.

Color Printing on Campus

Color printing, poster sized printing, and other specialty jobs are handled by the UW Tacoma Copy Center which is is located in MAT 053 in the alley behind the Harmon building. 

Not only are they the only location that provides color printing/copying but the Copy Center's pricing is cheaper than the Pharos system and you can pay using cash, debit, or credit card.  Husky Cards are not accepted.

You can either take your job over to the copy center on a USB drive or you can email the job to uwtcc@uw.edu
