What is “Print” Quota?

“Print quota” is a term given to the privilege of printing freely in any of the computer labs at Questrom. See the following section for eligibility. All Boston University students are also given a separate print quota account at OIT’s computer labs within the Mugar Library, inquiries about which should be directed to that lab. Students are given an initial account balance by virtue of their enrollment, but replenishment to the Questrom print quota may only be extended through the addition of funds by the student. Further details can be found at our printing page.

Eligibility for Print Quota at Questrom

Fully registered SMG and GSM students are given an initial account balance according to their year of school:

Undergraduate Students

Freshmen: 600 Images
Sophomores: 200 images
Juniors: 200 images
Seniors: 200 images

Students enrolled in CORE will receive an additional 800 pages at the start of the semester they will be participating in the CORE program.

Graduate Students

MBA, PhD: 2200 Images

The full amount listed above is credited to the student account at the beginning of the fall semester, and does not replenish for the spring semester. Students pursuing minors in Questrom do not receive print quota privileges.

Students can verify current school affiliation by conducting a BU directory search. Only those students enrolled in a Questrom or Graduate program will receive print quota. Regardless of the individual scenario, it is this status code, assigned by the registrar, that determines whether our system will allow print quota to a given student. Students who feel their affiliation is incorrect, or outdated, should contact the registrar directly.

Locker Rental

Lockers are available in the Rafik B. Hariri building for all Questrom School of Business students to rent. Large lockers may be rented for $10.00 (although the quantity is limited), and small lockers may be rented for $5.00.

Locker Rentals begin on the first and second day of classes in September.   This advance sale will be cash only, and you must have your student ID with you. After these dates, locker rentals are available in the Open Access Computer lab, room 328, where cash or convenience points can be accepted.

Locker rentals are for the full academic year.

Locker rentals are administered only by the Senior Lab Coordinator, Monday – Friday. If you come in at a time when she is not available, you can fill out the locker rental form, pay and pick up your locker combination the following business day.

In order to receive a locker, you must first activate your AD account, for proof of Questrom affiliation.
