New to Watzek?: Technology


Watzek has three printers. The reference printer is located near the PCs in the atrium. The Watzek printer and Watzek color printer are in the lab with Macs and PCs (to your right when facing the central staircase in the atrium).


Both Mac and PC desktops are available on the second floor of the building. No log-in is required.

Scanners and Copiers

Two black-and-white photocopiers are available. Purchase a copy card for $1.00 or $5.00 at the service desk.

Additional smaller scanners are connected to Mac desktops.
