GVPrint going GREEN beginning Fall 2017!

August 15, 2017

Over 27 million sheets were printed or copied for student use in the 2016-2017 academic year, and approximately 5 million of those sheets were never picked up. This year, you can help us reduce paper consumption in classrooms, labs, and open spaces!

The goal is to continue to offer free printing to GVSU students, but we can only do that with your help.  GVSU will implement print/copy limits on all jobs sent to GVPrint release stations (you can view this list on the IT Website under Resources/Printing).  Note that there is no limit for printing in classroom scheduled computer labs.

  • Per job limit per student – 40 printed/copied pages (if duplexed, 20 physical sheets)
  • Per semester limit per student – 500 printed/copied pages (if duplexed, 250 physical sheets)

IT will be collaborating with the Library and other departments around campus to provide weekly statistics on print/copy usage so we can monitor this throughout the year. The plan is to show the usage statistics on display monitors in the Library and Kirkhof Center as well as the IT website throughout the semester.
