In order to print, you will need to load funds on to your print/copy account , which is set up for all Brock students, faculty, and staff. Visitors to Brock who want to use the copiers should visit the Library “Ask Us” desk, in the Matheson Learning Commons, to learn about printing options.

Brock users pay for printing using Flex Dollars (which can be spent on goods and services across campus !) which you load onto your Brock Card in increments of $10 or more:

  1. To securely add funds online yourself , you will need a credit card (VISA/Mastercard) or a Debit Mastercard or VISA/debit card . If you do not have a credit card, inquire with your bank about setting up a debit/credit card. Simply log in with your Brock ID and click Add Cash.
  2. A third party (e.g. a parent or guardian) can add funds on your behalf using the parental deposit feature . They will need your Student/Faculty/Staff Number and date of birth.
  3. Visit the Brock Card Office (top of Market Hall Stairs) to load funds, including cash or debit, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
