Free Print Allowance

Icon Community Use ComputingDescription
The Free Print Allowance Program allows students, faculty, and staff to print free of charge in NU Information Technology Services managed computer labs. Users can check their free print allowance using the “Husky Card Account Balances” and “Husky Card Account Transactions” applications on myNEU and purchase additional pages by using Husky Dollars.

The free print allowance account provides $120 of free printing each year for undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff. The program also allows users to purchase additional pages by funding their Husky Dollar account. Print allowances are automatically refreshed annually prior to the start of the Fall term. Unused pages do not roll over to the next print period. Dual sided printing is available in all labs and effectively halves the cost of multipage jobs.
