Final Theses Printing Service: free copies are no longer available

Due to a large number of funding requests as well as scarce resources, the Student Parliament of the University of Ulm will, unfortunately, halt funding for the printing of theses beginning 01.05.2021. For this reason, beginning 01.05.2021, until further notice, only print jobs for a fee (without free copies) can be accepted.

Printing of theses (not dissertations)

You can print and bind theses at kiz. To a certain extent and under certain conditions, the costs for this will also be covered. Please note the following instructions for a smooth process:

  • The final thesis must be completely formatted in accordance with the applicable specifications and must be available as a PDF file.
  • Orders must always be submitted online to our order management and billing system. If you do not have a suitable terminal with online access, a PC is available at the Service-Point Print, so that you can place an order with it. In this case, please bring the thesis to be printed on a USB stick. The staff will be happy to help you.
  • Self-printing via the PC pools is not possible. Please understand that we cannot accept orders via e-mail with attachments.
  • Finishing of th orders: see above
  • In addition to the free copies, you will be charged for additional copies of the theses upon collection.

Please note that the order processing for dissertations differs slightly from that for other final theses.

Students can have up to three copies of their final theses printed free of charge at kiz. The print and binding order is transmitted directly to the order management and accounting system of the kiz via a print assistant
