Free printers still available for students – use them wisely!


The printing system of the students of the University of Helsinki was renewed last year. The former annual printing quotas were discontinued. Now you can have a printing account into which you can download money and print black-and-white printouts for 7.6 cents/page.

The University also maintained a total of 17 free printers for the use of students. These printers are marked with the red-black StudentPrintPoint logo. For now, free printers are available for study-related black-and-white printouts.

However, you should use free printers at moderation in order to save the environment as well. Please remember to check with your teacher whether you can return your course assignments in an electronic format. The University monitors the amount of printouts and will send a questionnaire to those who use the printers the most, asking for which course or purpose they have printed out the papers. In this way, the University can identify the courses which require plenty of printing as well as possible malpractices.
