What is CAPS?

CAPS is the University of Tasmania Copying and Printing Service. The CAPS system allows printing and photocopying across multiple devices and locations from a single account. All staff and students are provided with a CAPS account but funds must be added before it can be used.

How do I add money to my CAPS account?

Money can be added to your CAPS account using the online payment service, via coin cashier units in any UTAS library, or via EFTPOS at the Client Services Desk in any UTAS library (minimum EFTPOS transaction is $5).

How much does printing/photocopying cost?

Costs are calculated per page and are based on both the size of the page and whether the document is in colour or black and white.

12¢ per black and white A4 page
24¢ per black and white A3 page
50¢ per colour A4 page
$1.00 per colour A3 page

Copyright information

UTAS photocopiers must be used strictly in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright Act. In every case the onus is on the user to ensure that copying does not breach the Act. Any infringement is entirely the responsibility of the user. There are notices near most photocopiers setting out the main points of the Copyright Act.
