1. e-mail them to (include your department and quantity of copies needed in the e-mail) You will receive an e-mail when your copies are completed and ready to pick up in the DSB. 

2. Stop by the DSB any time during our open hours to copy them yourself.

3. Stop by one of the university copy centers with your department budget string number and have them make copies for you.

The DSB only has black and white copying capabilities! It is standard procedure for the DSB to make all copies on white paper. Multi-page documents are printed double sided and stapled. If you would like colored instead of white paper, we do have a small selection, please request when e-mailing your copy request.

Reservation Restrictions

  • User may book a piece of equipment up to 10 hours per week.
  • Reservations can be booked online up to 2 weeks in advance.
  • 15 minutes is required between reservations for processing.
  • Reservations can be made in 30min, 45min, and 1 hour slots
  • Users must be present within 10 minutes of their reservation time or their reservation will be canceled.
  • Up to 2 back-to-back reservations may be made but there must be a 15-minute processing time between reservations. The user may stay at the printer during this 15-minute time. Example: if you want to use a printer from 11:00- 1:00 you will make one reservation from 11:00-12:00 and the second reservation from 12:15-1:00.

User Responsibility

  • Users are responsible for finishing using the workstations at their scheduled reservation end time, this includes prints being completed by the printers. The larger the print the longer the printer takes to print it.
  • Prints on the small printers should be sent no less than 10 minutes before the end of their reservation and prints on the large printers sent no less than 30 minutes before the reservation end. Larger prints may require more time to print!
  • All prints will be paid for at the time of printing, either by a class fee or pay-as-you-go. For pay-as-you-go the DSB technicians will supply students with a bill that must be paid at the photo crib before the prints can be taken from the DSB. Or students may use their Gopher Gold/U card if there is money on the card.
  • No prints leave the DSB without being paid for!

  • 4880/4900 sheet printers print sheets of paper up to 17" wide
  • 7900/P700 roll printers print on 24" rolls.
  • 9800/9900 roll printers print on 24" or 44" rolls. Sheets may also be put in these printers, but paper registration is more difficult.
You must choose a printer that prints on the media you will be printing on as the inks are different for matte paper and luster paper. This is marked on the checkout site.
