Print & Pay
Whether last lecture’s slides, handouts or posters needed for presentations or your final thesis – there is no way getting around printing in everyday life at university. However, buying your own printer or spending a lot of money for printing is unnecessary, because with Print & Pay we offer a low priced and comfortable alternative to students and WWU-employees available at many WWU locations.
