Printing and copying

All printers support printing, copying and scanning in colour. They support both A4 and A3 paper formats. Black and white two-sided print-outs are standard. When using your printing account for the first time, your student card must be activated at reception.

Topping up your account

Students must pay for printing and copying. Your printing account can be topped up via an online payment system (Paypal).

Go directly to topping up (only available when you are using NLA's network) or read more about online topping up here. If you are asked about a certificate, click "Continue to this website" ("Fortsett til dette nettstedet").
Any unused printing quota will be transferred to the next semester but will not be paid out at the end of your course.

If you choose automatic colour printing, the colour price will only be charged for those pages that are in colour, and the black/white price will be charged for the rest.
