Printing

The Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering Learning Resource Center provides printing from the lab computers. The resources provided by the lab are restricted to Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering students, faculty, and staff and students currently enrolled in any CAEE course.

All CAEE students will be allocated a $40 print quota to print to the black/white LRC printers and large format plotter. Effective Fall 2016, color printing is no longer available under the quota system. Once you run out of your print quota,  ITS black/white and color printers are available in the LRC (2.206). "Bevo Bucks" (http://www.utexas.edu/student/bevobucks) are required to use these printers. More information can be found at http://www.utexas.edu/its/utprint.
