printing service

The RHRZ Druckausgabe is the central printing services division at the RHRZ in Kaiserslautern. The printing service is staffed with a wide variaty of different printers ranging from DIN A4 up to DIN A0. The service is available for both staff and students of the RPTU in Kaiserslautern.


All members of the RPTU, students and staff will receive credit points to be used for printing services.

The credit points or quotas will be awarded at the beginning of each month and can be accumulated throughout the semester.

Once a semester, on the 1. of March and the 1. of September all the accumulated credit points or quotas will be reset for student accounts (incl. Students GF) and course accounts.

The special quotas for student organisations and the staff of the RPTU will not be reset but can reach a maximum of 6 monthly quotas.

In this way the various print volumes can be balanced in a more efficient way.
