Black and white double-sided printing is covered by the student technology fee. The expectation is that students will not use printers to make copies. There is a copy machine in the Student Union and a few copy machines in the Library on the Denton campus.

Color printing is $0.40 per page and currently available in the Denton library computer lab, the MCL Megalab, the Dallas Computer Lab on the 6th floor, and the Houston Computer Lab. BYOD printing is also available in the Megalab, Guinn Commons Lab, Woodcock Hall 107, Blagg-Huey Library, Dallas Computer Lab and Houston Computer Lab.
