Student Printing

Printing is available to currently enrolled students at VIU. Note: VIU has temporarily made printing free of charge for students.

In the Library and VIU Library Commons, you can print on transparencies or photo-quality paper in either black & white or colour. Transparencies and photo-quality paper (semi-gloss)  are available for purchase at the Service Desk. Library staff will help you print your documents on special media.

Double-sided printing can be done on both colour and black & white printers in the Library and VIU Library Commons.

Detailed printing instructions are available in the Library and in  PDF format at the bottom of this page. As an alternative to do-it-yourself printing, VIU's Printing and Duplicating Centre offers printing services.
