Print Allowance

Northeastern University offers all students and full-time faculty and staff a free print allowance to make printing more convenient. The print allowance can be used at Snell Library and various other locations throughout campus.

Print Allowance Allocation

All active Northeastern students and full-time faculty/staff get $120 worth of free print allowance or the equivalent of 1200 pages per academic year. The print year is based upon the current academic calendar, which is fall through summer 2 semester. There is no rollover of prints and you cannot accumulate pages across print periods.

If you use all of your printing allowance during the allotted time period, the printing system will automatically default to Husky Dollars. If you run out of both your print allowance and Husky Dollars, cash may be used as an alternative. You cannot borrow prints from a future print period.

You can check your print allowance anytime through the self-service tab under Husky Card Account Balances in your Student Hub portal.
