To ensure that supply is used for printing and plotting in a meaningful way, the Gauß-IT-Centre raises the charges for all printed materials. They serve as a regulatory, and are relatively low and essentially cover the cost of materials.
The websites for the cost of printing can offer a comprehensive overview of your account balance as well as the print jobs generated by them and their cost. In particular, you can find out all about your printing costs account and how the whole process works and what the printouts cost.
As user, i.e. as student or institute-employee, you can view your account

If required, switch over to individual payment from payment by the institute (only as institute-employee).
As DV-coordinator, you can
request the creation of a printing account for your institution.
accept all accounts of your institute or your department (also the accounts for computer).
grant your staff members permissions to use the accounts of your institution, change or revoke the permissions to these accounts.
