Computer, Printing, & Scanning Services

Tateuchi East Asia Library is closed to the public through April 2023 due to the ongoing renovation project. Please see Tateuchi East Asia Library Closure update for more information on accessing the library space and materials.


The Tateuchi East Asia Library has several Access+ workstations near the Information Desk on floor 3.  These workstations require log-in with UW NetID.  These computers offer access to e-mail, the internet, databases and online resources available through the UW, and are equipped with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access, as well as a number of other programs.  (See the full list of hardware/software here.)

In addition, there is a bank of computers available for public use (UW log-in not required) near the Information Desk on floor 3.  These Guest Research Stations provide access to library resources, limited access to the internet, and offer read-only versions of the Microsoft Office suite of software (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.).  See hardware/software details here.


Public printing is available to self-service black-and-white or color laser printers near the Information Desk (3F).  Print jobs are held in the print queue for 24 hours.  All campus printing is on 100% recycled paper and defaults to double-sided.  (Users may also select single sided printing.)

Mobile/Wireless printing

Users with UW NetID may log into print.uw.edu to upload documents and print directly from their own laptops.

Paying for Printing

  • Black-and-white prints are 12¢ for a single-sided page and 23¢ for a double-sided page.
  • Color prints are 75¢ for a single-sided page and $1.50 for a double-sided page.
  • UW students, faculty, and staff, pay with your UW Husky Card.  Add funds to your account on the Husky Card Account website, at add-value stations located at Suzzallo/Allen Library, Odegaard Library, Health Sciences Library, and William H. Gates Hall, at the Husky Card Account office below the Odegaard Library, or at any residence hall front desk.
  • Non-UW users may purchase a $5 Dawg Prints Card that may be used for campus printing, photocopying, campus food services, and more.


Self-service scanning is available on floor 3, near the Information Desk.  Three Access+ workstations (limited to current University of Washington students, faculty and staff) are equipped with scanners.  There is also a Dawg Prints scan station, which offers a slightly larger scanner.

Scanning options:

  • To a USB drive (cannot be a Mac-formatted drive)
  • To a print station
  • To e-mail (non-UW users should ask staff for a temporary NetID)
  • To mobile device
  • To Google Drive


We no longer have a photocopy machine.  You can scan your document(s) and send directly to a print station.


Wireless internet access for University of Washington students, faculty, and staff is available throughout the Tateuchi East Asia Library.  (For more information, see ITConnect's page on Using Wi-Fi at the UW.)  Non-UW users may request a temporary NetID for wireless access.
