Additionally, CILS is responsible for managing the system for printing in the Computer-Integrated Classrooms and many other departmental computer labs and classrooms. Currently we charge only $.10 per letter-sized page. All of our printers are laser printers and most of them are full color laser printers.  In Patton Hall 316 and Bishop-Favrao Hall 330 we offer large format printing at a slightly higher rate.

All printing is paid for by swiping your HokiePassport at the available PrintStation where your HokiePassport account will be charged the necessary amount. For information about how to add funds to your HokiePassport account please visit
