Printing at the Map Room
Printing stops 30 minutes prior to the Evans Map Room closing time. Check Map Room hours before going to print your poster
Once the Map Room staff approve your poster for printing, you can leave and pick up your poster at a later time. They will hold it for you until you return.
Students who received funding in the current academic year from WISP or UGAR for research that is presented at the symposium can print their poster in the Evans Map Room at no charge.
Poster tubes are also available for purchase in the Map Room. Contact the Map Room for availability and pricing.
