Printing

Every computer lab on campus is equipped with printing, photocopying and scanning facilities, available to anyone with a myCard. Every registered student at Centennial College has a myCard account they can load with myCard General Dollars to pay for these services. For details about print services and topping up your myCard account, see mycard.centennialcollege.ca.

You can send print jobs through Web Print, from computer stations in classrooms, labs and at computer stations. There are currently 67 locations accessible to all students to send print jobs, across all four main campuses. To print in classrooms and labs, select the printer located in the room. Tap and hold your card in place at the release station to release your job. Be sure to hit "Log Out" when complete. In addition to printing, the all-in-one machines on campus allow you to photocopy and scan from (or to) a USB.  To use them, tap and hold your myCard until you see the next display screen and follow the instructions on screen. Be sure to hit "log out" when your job is finished.
