Price Reduction in uPrint Service

We are pleased to announce a price reduction in uPrint with effect from 1 September 2017.  uPrint is a central printing service supported by ITS and is available in the Chi Wah Learning Common (CPD-1 and CPD-2), The Oval (1/F of Knowles Building), The Curve (2/F of K.K. Leung Building) and some Faculty-Based PC Laboratories.  The percentage of reduction is up to 50%, with a larger reduction in duplex printing to encourage the use of less paper.

uPrint printers supported by ITS are set to print duplex by default (except photocopying which has no default setting).  Users can change the print setting if they wish to print on one-side.

All printing charges will be deducted from users’ printing budget under their HKU Portal accounts in the equivalent amount of printing units (HK$0.3/unit).  For example, 0.67 printing units (HK$0.2/0.3) will be charged for one A4 black and white page printing in duplex after price reduction.  Users can add printing units using Octopus card through our Add Value Machines at the cost of HK$30 for 100 units. 

For the information of new students, 100 printing units will be added into their HKU Portal accounts upon creation to facilitate them in using the communal PC and printing facilities upon joining the University.  For non-newly admitted undergraduates, they will also receive 100 units at the start of each academic year.

In case you have question on the above, please feel free to contact the undersigned or ithelp@hku.hk
