UNLV Computer Lab Rules


Each computer lab is equipped with a B/W laser printer (some labs have color printers).

  • When your account is created, you are given a $1 credit towards printing. Black and white prints cost 3 cents each. Color prints cost 40 cents each.
  • When that initial $1 credit is extinguished, you will need to add funds to your RebelCash account, and all printing in the labs will then be charged to that account.
  • After sending your print job to the printer, you need to login to the print system to approve and release your print job.


Each computer lab is equipped with scanners. Scanning instructions are attached to each scanner lid.
