Printing at Lehigh Sites
Lehigh recognizes both the importance of printing to its students
and the need to reduce unchecked waste. Each August, all Lehigh
users - faculty, staff, and students - are given a public site print allowance of $75 for the year,
at no cost to them. Statistics show that this allowance meets the
printing needs of most Lehigh students. The printing allowance
also helps to make a dramatic difference in reducing paper waste
while at the same time contributing to Lehigh's efforts to foster
a sustainable campus.

Fall of 2011, LTS has seen a significant decrease in the amount of

of all users did not reach or exceed their print allowance
during the past school year. The chart below displays the printing
