The Lab is for Students
A Teaching Lab and Printing Facility Serving the Rutgers University – Camden Community

 

The VMPA Lab was created for students like you. Our location on campus and prices make us an easy and economical choice for students. No more driving off-campus and paying higher prices. You are why we created the VMPA lab!

We’re here to help execute your ideas and projects by printing, cutting, binding, or reproducing multiples. We have a variety of paper choices and sizes. We can help guide you through the process of prepping and uploading your files (see below). Like anything good, it takes time, so plan accordingly.

Printing will sometimes be part of your class, so make sure you speak with your professor. But you can also print personal projects that are just for you! We take a variety of payment options to make it easy for students from RUExpress to credit cards.
