In addition to physical labs, we also host a virtual lab that can be accessed from anywhere in the world, 24/7.

Most labs offer both color and black-and-white printing. Black-and-white printers generally charge 5 cents per page/side. Most color printers charge 25 to 40 cents per page/side. Charges for student printing are subtracted from the students pre-paid print credits. If you need to request a refund of your pre-paid print credits after graduation, use this online web form. For more information on printing at SOU, visit the Paper, Printing and Copying section of our online knowledgebase.

“Special” print jobs can be submitted through the Digital Art Printing and Labs website.

Assistive Technologies

All student-use computers in our labs have assistive technologies built in to provide a better user experience for students with additional accessibility needs. Several of our general-use labs, including the Hannon Library Reference area, the Main Computer Lab, and the Commuter Resource Center in the Stevenson Union, also have adjustable-height desks for wheelchair access.
