Students taking courses for credit and paying the tech fee) have $50 each semester for printing and copying.
Students in CUNY Start, CLIP, College Now, and Early College (Lincoln Academy and HERO) have $10 each semester.
Please note: your print/copy account will be emptied by IT at the end of each semester, so you can't carry over money from term to term.
Each black and white page costs 10 cents. Each color page costs more (15-30 cents per page).
Printing in the library defaults to printing both sides of the paper, to save you money and to conserve paper. If you prefer to print only on one side, you can choose one-sided printing from the print options menu.
You can add money to your card if you need to by using the machine on the top floor of the library, in the Reserves Room (room with the photocopiers). Please be careful when you add money, to make sure it goes into your printing account and not the cafeteria account.

While classes are online and most spaces on campus are closed, here is information from Hostos IT about how you can print:
The college has created a temporary “Print/Copy Site” in the C building on the ground floor.
In order to comply with the CUNY Safe Campus guidelines, the location has been set up with 12 socially-distanced workstations and one Color and one Black-and-White printer for our students.
Appointments will be necessary in order to access this service.
What will I need to use the printers?
You will need at least your Hostos e-mail address, preferably your Hostos ID card, and funds available for Print/Copy in your Caiman Card account. The college assigns your account funds at the start of each semester to allow you to Print/Copy.
What if I use up all of the college assigned funds?
You can add more funds to your Caiman Card by either downloading the app or logging on to this website with your Hostos e-mail and password. Please note: for your initial deposit, you must log in to the website; you can use the app later for adding more funds or checking your account balance.
