Add a printer (Windows)

Please note: Printing a page in color costs your chair 6 Rp/page, while a page in Black&White costs 1 Rp/page only!! Therefore, we strongly recommend to set the default of our printer preferences to Black&White (see further below).

Please also have a look at print.ethz.ch There, you can make a webprint and also check your printing costs, even the environmental costs of your print activity!
