In April 2014 the USQ Student Forum agreed to support a proposal which provided a postage or printing subsidy of $50 per semester for currently enrolled students (up to a maximum of $150 per year).
This subsidy is automatically applied to every enrolled student’s print account at the beginning of each semester. The subsidy is linked to your student number and can be used to pay for print and postage through Print Express, or printing through Bear Print (the self-serve print vending solution). When ordering online via USQ Print Express, students can choose to use their credit to subsidize their printing order. At the end of Semester 3 each year any unused subsidy/credit is returned to the Student Amenities Fee Fund.
What is Bear Print and Print Express?
- Bear Print and Print Express are easy to use web-based interfaces which help you take control of your printing needs anytime, anywhere.
- Print Express is available to order additional study material, print from the study desk or print your own file.
- Bear Print is networked to a fleet of self-serve printers/copiers on all campuses.
- The instruction guide: A guide to USQ Student Printing (PDF*1.09MB) and How to release print jobs in Bear Print (PDF* 350KB) can provide further information.
