Q. Why do you charge for photocopies?
I pay a technology fee at the university so why do I pay for photocopies and copies over the semester limit?
The library generously allows students to print 350 pages/semester. We charge $0.10/page after the student has used that limit. We also charge $0.10/page for black and white and $0.25/page for color photocopies.
The TU technology fee goes toward networks, computer parts, IT staffing, and other things, not just paper. Thomas University encourages faculty and students, as guardians of the environment, to reduce paper usage as much as possible by saving to a cloud or network and sharing documents online.
DropBox and GoogleDrive are two examples of document hosting and sharing programs.
