Two self-service black and white photocopiers are available. Photocopying is 13¢ per page with a copy card or 15¢ per page with coins/bills. Both copiers accept Stanford ID cards and copy cards. One of the copiers accept coins, $1 and $5 bills.

How to pay for printing and photocopying

Students may enroll in the Stanford Card Plan and use a Stanford ID card as a debit card for printing or photocopying. Faculty and staff can add value to a Stanford ID card at a cash-to-card machine. Visitors may purchase a copy/print card at any cash-to-card machine for $1. Additional funds need to be added for print/photocopying use. The nearest cash-to-card machine location is Swain Library.
