Printing and Print Services

Printers are available for student use in classrooms, the Library and print stations in CA200.

The cost of printing is .10¢/page (black and white) and .25¢/page (colour). To pay for printing, students must load credit onto their eCards.

Printing with your eCard

You pay for printing using the balance attached to your Student ID (eCard). Learn more about using your eCard and the many ways to add to or check the balance on your card.

The cost of your printing is immediately deducted from the balance on your eCard when you select "Print" in your software. 

Note: 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 simply not print. The first step in troubleshooting an unresponsive printer should always be to check the eCARD balance.

Direct all concerns or issues regarding the eCARD system (mobile app, online systems, loading funds) to the eCARD office in Senator Burns NN104.

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

Page sizes available are:

  • Letter (8 1/2" x 11")
