Printing, Scanning & Copying


Printers are available for all patrons. Each page impression costs 6 cents.  The cost is deducted from your GoCard or from a Georgetown University Debit Card.

Color printing is available on the Altalink C8055 Xerox copier / printer that is located in the Loewinger Lounge of the Bob Oakley Reading Room.   Each color page impression costs 20 cents.  Clients need to select the “GU Color Printing” option at the time that the print job is being sent. If pages sent to be printed are both color and black and white, only the color pages will be charged the higher rate of 20 cents, others will be printed at 6 cents.

Instructions on how to send and retrieve print jobs can be found by each print station.  Complete instructions on using the public printers are provided by the Law Center Information Systems & Technology (IST) Department.

GU Guest Debit Cards may be purchased at a GoCard Deposit Station for $1.  Money can be added to the cards at these same stations using $1, $5, $10, & $20 bills, but no change is given. Members of the Georgetown Community can add money to GoCards online. GoCard Deposit Stations are located at:
