How To - Printing

    Printing with your student account

Your SSE Riga student account printing can be managed at!
On you can check your SSE Riga student account balance, see your recent print jobs and submit a document for Web printing (see below).

During studies at SSE Riga, students will be able to print at school premises using their individual student accounts. Student account is used whenever students print from a computer in PCLab, SSE Riga Library or use web printing.

    Printing credits

SSE Riga student accounts use credits to "pay" for printing at SSE Riga premises. All SSE Riga students, including Exchange and Year4 students, receive 2.50 additional credits (equivalent to 250 printed pages) at the start of each semester, up to a maximum of 10.00 credits (equivalent to 1000 printed pages). Printing costs 0.01 credit per page (single or double-sided). All printouts will be automatically deducted from your account. Once a student has depleted their printing credit, it won't be possible to print any more using the student account.


  • When printing a document the credits will be automatically deducted from the currently logged on student's account. You should be cautious not to leave your account logged in on a public computer!
  • Avoid unnecessary printing and conserve paper when printing is a must. Powerpoint slides/PDF presentations can be printed 2, 3 or 6 per page. Print on both sides whenever possible!
  • Additional credits can be bought at the SSE Riga Library (Walenberg building, 6th floor) at a rate of EUR 0.07 per credit.
  • You can check your account balance at

    Web printing - Printing from your own devices

Students can send documents to be printed out in PCLab from their own devices using site.
You can send documents to be printed from any computer/tablet/phone connected to our school network. The printing menu is very simplistic - you cannot print specific pages or make adjustments like printing 2 pages per page. All documents will be queued up and you can  release/collect them whenever you are at the PCLab printer.

To print a document using Web printing:

  1. Go to and login with your account info
  2. Go to Web Print section -> Submit a Job and upload your document
    Once uploaded, the document will be sent to a printing queue in PClab where it will stay until released
  3. In PCLab, scan your SSE Riga student ID card at the printer and release your submitted documents for printing
