How does Uniprint work?

Detailed directions will be available at each workstation and the print release station.

Use the normal print commands on your PC or Mac. Some locations will offer color laser printing, if you would like a color print, select the color printer from your application's print menu. If the printer(s) supports Duplex printing, this will be used as default setting.

When you are ready to pick up your print job:

  • Go to a print release station and log in there using your UAA Username.
  • Swipe your WOLFcard, or your Consortium Library Copy Card through the slot on the print release station keyboard. A list of documents you have sent to be printed will be shown. Select the document you want to print, review the estimated cost to print it, and click on "Print".

Your job will be deleted from the print queue if you do not release it within two (2) hours of submitting it.

You must release your print job at the site that you submitted it. For example, if you submitted a print job in Student Union Open Computer Lab, you must print it there -- you will not be able to print it in Consortium Library.

How much does it cost?

UAA Students attending classes at the Anchorage, Chugiak/Eagle River, Elmendorf, and Ft. Richardson campus' that have paid the UAA Technology Fee will start the semester with a credit of $10.00 in their Uniprint accounts. This is a non-accumulating credit.

Printing costs are:

  • Regular Black & White Laser prints: $0.08 ea.
  • Duplex (double-sided) Black & White Laser prints: $0.14 ea.
  • Regular Color Laser prints: $0.28 ea.
  • Duplex Color Laser prints: $0.53 ea.

Paying for Sheets Over the initial Credit

If you use your WOLFcard to release print jobs that have an associated charge, you must have a balance of WOLFbucks sufficient to cover the print job. You automatically have a WOLFbucks account if you have a WOLFcard, but you must deposit funds to activate it. Please note that Dining Dollars are not usable for printing costs.

You may add funds using the self-service Value Transfer Stations located at the following locations:

  • Commons Lobby
  • Consortium Library
  • Sally Monsourd Hall
  • Student Union (formally the Campus Center)

Alternitivly you may visit the WOLFcard Office located in the University Center, or call 786-HOWL (4695) and charge your credit card (between 9:00am - 5:00pm weekdays).

If you use your Consortium Library Copy Card to print, the balance on it will be debited for the cost of the number of sheets you print.

Technical Difficulties

If your print job experiences technical difficulties (paper jams, toner streaks, etc.) you will not be held accountable for the print costs. Those print jobs that are affected can be resubmitted at no cost to you. To have the print job reprinted without cost please take your ruined copies to the location's staff/Lab Consultants.

Reprints will not be done for printouts made by mistake, blank pages, or for materials such as web pages that, due to layout or design, are difficult to read, don't contain the information you want, or have large areas of blank space.
