Study Spaces & Copy Machines

Summer Quarter Printing

As the college manages its COVID-19 response, it realizes that open printing services are not available to students. Students have the following options for printing:

  • If you are attending classes on-campus during Summer quarter, faculty have been asked to print materials for you.
    • Offices, including the library, are not open to assist you with printing.
  • If you are not attending on-campus classes, and you need to print, it is suggested that commercial services or copy centers are used for printing.
  • If you need printing due to accommodation, please contact Mony Loeum. Your materials will be printed on campus and mailed to you.

Open Lounge Areas and Study Areas

Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) has designed numerous spaces on our Kirkland and Redmond campuses that are available to all students for relaxing and gathering. These areas are specifically designed for student groups for hanging out or meeting up with a study space. Spaces are located throughout both campuses. We encourage you to explore our campuses and find a space you that works for your needs. Office of Student Life staff manages many of these areas, if there are problems with these areas please report any issues to East building, E128.


Currently, all printing locations are closed until further notice.

Copy Machines

Top-Off Printer/Copy Cards

At the start of each quarter, LWTech students receive a $5 credit for their printing/copying needs. With the current $0.05 per black and white copy charge, the $5 credit equates to one hundred (100) black & white prints/copies. The color copy charge is $0.21 per copy. Students can add copy credits to their account by purchasing copy/print Top-Off Cards at the LWTech Bookstore during regular business hours.

Students at the Redmond campus can purchase Top-Off Cards from a staff member at the front administrative office from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Top-Off Cards may be purchased in $1 and $5 denominations. Purchased credits are added to your copy/print account via an online process with instructions. Computer terminals in the Library are available for adding credits to your account.

Top-Off Card credits expire at the end of each quarter and do not carry over to the next quarter. Top-Off Cards are not available at the Kirkland Campus Library, so please plan ahead for weekend copying needs.

For questions or technical support, please contact the Student Helpdesk in the LWTech IT Services Department. The Student Helpdesk can be reached by telephone at (425) 576-5865.


For a fee, printer and copy machines are available for use for students. If you have issues with the copiers, please visit the reference desk (Library) or Office of Student Life (East Building, E128). All students need a print card, which doubles as your student ID. Pick up your student ID from the Information Desk in West building, W201. If you have troubles with the copy machine contact a staff member for assistance.
