Printing on campus
Majority of the courses at IIT Kanpur require printed reports and assignments at some point. Documents like Income Certificate, Scholarship forms are only available online and need to be printed. And since most of these reports, assignments and forms are completed at the last minute, it is beneficial to know the locations in the campus where printing and photocopying services are available. Most of the hostels have a personal shop offering these services for convenience of the students, nevertheless, there are self-help points in the campus where facilities are available for free.
