There’s Finally A Color Printer In The HUB

Good news, anyone who’s ever had to print a report, project, or any other non-monochromatic document with no time to go to the library: There is now a color printer in the HUB.

Yes you read that right. Thanks to UPUA and Penn State Information Technology Services, students (and others with a Penn State access account) now have access to a color printer in the HUB. Located next to the black and white printers and computer bank (under the High School Musical stairs, across from Jamba Juice and the THON store), color prints are available for students at a rate of three sheets of your semesters allotment of 110 or for $0.15 a sheet.

UPUA originally passed legislation to fund the color printer at the very end of the 10th assembly (the last meeting, in fact). At the time, they were still evaluating potential locations, but the Technology Area under the stairs is a great, convenient choice for all students.

“This is an easy way to make the lives of students a little better,” UPUA Facilities Chair Brent Rice said. “In an area where so many students complete so many of their assignments, adding a color printer seemed like a no-brainer.”

The color printer, up and running as of yesterday, is a great resource for students and will surely be a welcome addition to those who do work in the HUB and don’t want to walk up to the library just to print in color.
