🚨 The Library does not currently support printing or copying by visitors to SAIT.

Troubleshooting and printing support

Printing requests using empty eCARDS do not activate a message or notification for the student — the printer will not print.

The first step in troubleshooting an unresponsive printer should always be to check your eCARD balance.

Direct all concerns or issues regarding the eCARD system (mobile app, online systems, loading funds) to the eCARD office.

For physical printer issues — paper jams, paper shortage, toner or device service requests — contact the ITS Service Desk.

Printing services at the Library

The Library has multifunction devices (MFD) for printing, copying and scanning — two on Level-1 and one on Level-0.

Our MFDs default to black-and-white, double-sided printing. You can select colour printing and change other options in the print settings of your software if needed.

Page sizes available are:

  • Letter (8 1/2" x 11")
  • Legal (8 1/2" x 14")
  • Tabloid (11" x 17")

A "page" is one side of a sheet of paper.
