Campus Printing

Black and white printing

WSU has approximately 90 black and white laser printers available to students.

  • Student printers are available in every classroom building.
  • Student printers are available in each of the residence halls.
  • There are nine high speed duplex printers in the Krueger Library. 
  • Four printers are available in Kryzsko Commons.

ITS, working with Student Senate in support of the university’s sustainability initiatives, implemented  new guidelines for student printing on the WSU campus. While most students kept their printing to a minimum last year, some printed over 3,000 pages. Excessive printing by a few students can quickly consume the printing resources for all students. To promote conservation, control rising printing costs, and avoid increasing the student technology fee, each student will receive a balance of 1,000 black laser pages at the beginning of each semester, effective fall semester 2010. Additional print allotments will be available for purchase from the WSU Technical Support Center. It is $5.00 for an additional 125 pages.

Winona State University provides media color printing services in Library 105 at the Digital Learning Commons. Any print job under $20.00 will require use of the purple pass. If you do not have money on your purple pass, you will need to go the Warrior Hub to add money. Media printing includes color printing, color copies, poster printing and lamination. All unusual or large printing or laminating projects are subject to set up fees. There will be a charge of $15 per 30 minutes for set up. Please have printing files ready and in the correct format (PDF) prior to submitting the printing request to avoid charges. If project is not picked up within 30 days, it will be recycled.

Printing requirements:

  • All print jobs must be sized by you to the “final” print size you want. We will only print the document(s) in the size you give us because we do not do any resizing for you.

Students can no longer send their color printing directly to the color printer. If you come to the Technical Support Center to print, you will be asked to email your document to mediaprojects@winona.edu or save it to a USB key.

The majority of small individual color printing projects can usually be turned around within a very short period of time, larger projects may take longer, so please allow enough time for your project.
