Services for the BU Community: Computing & Printing

Research computers are located in the Pappas Reading Room and at the Law Annex. These computers provide access to legal resources available on-site to non-law visitors. Each computer has been profiled with a suite of software to assist with legal research.

Printing is available to Mugar Commons printers through MyPrint accounts. Local printing is available by purchasing a print/copy card.

From Library Computers:

We recommend that you select double-sided printing whenever possible to maximize your 1000 sheet per semester MyPrint allotment.
