Pay Printing in the Library

The library provides access to Creative Communications' pay printing system, colloquially referred to as 'Pharos.'

By default, all Library computers print to the LEARNING_COMMONS_DOUBLE_SIDED print queue. The printer that can print these jobs is only located in the Library and the print jobs are double-sided by default. If you want to print single-sided, simply choose the LEARNING_COMMONS_SINGLE_SIDED print queue.

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 Library's add-value station which is located near the printers, 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
