Labs and Computers

At the Edwards School of Business, we provide computers dedicated to only Edwards students.  These computers are located in various labs, rooms and boardrooms around the building. Every computer in the Edwards School of Business is exactly the same and were last upgraded in 2014.

Initially, each student receives 100 pages in their account for printing in Edwards Labs. This is not "free printing", but is given to you to cover printing costs incurred due to mistakes made by our hardware (low toner, paper jams, etc). Printing costs $0.10 per page for black and white, and $0.25 per page for colour printing. Additional pages can be purchased at the Printing Kiosk in Room 143 Commerce.

The computers in each lab are configured to print by default to the printer located in that lab. Printing pages in Edwards can only be used in the Edwards computer labs. Printing is not transferable to other labs in other Colleges. If you need to print in other Colleges, you will have to purchase printing specifically for that College.

On every desktop in the Edwards computer labs, there is a tool called 'PAS Client tool' which indicates your current printing balance. You can also check this on-line by clicking on the PAS tools. Your print balance in PAWS is not the Edwards School print balance. This is for the greater University's print system and is not part of our system.
