  2. Your printing request must be received at least two working days before you need it. For example, if you make a request on Thursday, the poster will not be printed until the following Monday.
  3. This service is for students in the Computer Science and Computer Engineering Departments. If you are in a different department, your advisor must make the printing request and state the affiliation with the Computer Science Department.
  1. To request a poster, send an email to
  2. The only acceptable poster file format is “.pdf” (Portable Document Format).
  3. Attach the poster's “.pdf” file to the email.
  4. Mandatory: The email's subject line should be: Poster printing: request from {UVA ID}, needed by {Date and time}, size {Arch D or Arch E} with or without tube. For example “Poster printing: request from abc1de needed by August 23, 4pm, size arch D, no tube”
