If you are working at a library work station, the print dialogue box will display BCBlackWhitePrintQueue or BCColorPrintQueue. Select the option you need, go to the nearest print area, and swipe your BC ID at a print station. On O'Neill 3rd floor, there are 5 black and white printers and 1 color printer. On O'Neill 1st floor, there are four black and white printers. The Digital Studio (2nd Floor) has one 1 color and 1 black and white printer.


Select BCGuestPrintQueue in the print dialogue box. Name your print job. At the print station adjacent to the guest workstations, swipe a printing card (available from the card vending machine in the 3rd floor technology area) and click Print. Print charges for guests: $0.15/page.

Remote Printing

If you would like to print from your laptop or other device, follow the remote printing instructions. These remote printing settings allow you to print to any of the major computer labs and libraries on campus from your own computer.

Student Printing Charges

Black and White: $0.03/page (= 500 pages)

Color: $0.50/page (= 30 pages)

NOTE: Don't get burned by color printing! Black & White and Color prints are both charged to your Print Bucks quota ($15.00). You can exhaust your entire Print Bucks quota with just 30 color prints! If you need to print many pages in color, consider using Eagle Print, where color prints are $0.25/page.

Two black and white pages, printed double-sided, are charged as one page. (Make sure the print dialog box is set to "duplex" or "print both sides".) Two color pages printed double-sided are charged as two pages. You can view your print usage by clicking on Eagle One Card Activity Summary in the Agora portal. For questions about the printing policy, please contact Student Services in Lyons Hall at ext. 2-3300.

If you are running into technical difficulties in O'Neill, please visit the technology information desk on the 3rd (main) floor near the printers. In other libraries, please visit any service desk. If you are not in a library, please call the Technology Help Desk at 617-552-HELP (4357).
