Students can print for free in the Center for Student Life & Leadership Development, in Building 5 Room 354, across from The Grove. Students can print up to 150 black & white pages each semester, with color copies counting as 3 pages, and 11x17 copies counting as 1.5 pages. Students will need to show their valid Cañada Student Body ID Card to access printing services whenever Student Life is open. Whenever Student Life is closed, students can print for free in the Library, when the library is open. Check in at the circulation desk in the library for more information. If you have questions about free printing through the Center for Student Life & Leadership Development please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
