Printing & Study Spaces

Full-time undergraduate students receive $25 of printing funds on their Papercut accounts in the spring and fall. Part-time and graduate students do not automatically have funds added to their printing accounts.

  • Cash may be added to a student printing account at either library circulation desk during regular hours (weekdays 7:30 am-5:00 pm in the Fall/Spring, 8:30 am-5:00 pm in Summer/intersessions). Kiosks are also available on the first floor of each library for adding exact amounts of cash and coins to printing accounts (no refunds or change will be given).
  • Credit cards can be used to add funds to student printing accounts, although funds will not be available for immediate use. Funds are applied to printing accounts Monday-Friday between 8:30am-5:00pm. You will receive an email confirmation when funds have been added to your printing account. To add printing funds using a credit card, click here.

Printing funds are non-refundable. All student printing quotas are reduced to zero at the end of the academic year (the weekend of Commencement). Funds added after Commencement will remain on student accounts until the following year at Commencement.

How much print quota is deducted per page?

Black and White: 5 cents per page (4 cents/side for double-sided)

Color: 20 cents per page (15 cents/side for double-sided)

Where can I print?

Printing is accomplished by printing to a virtual queue (e.g., ToshibaBW, ToshibaColor, HP-BW, or HP-Color) and logging in at corresponding printer. To log in, swipe your Sage ID card, or type in your username/password or Sage ID number (“PIN Code”).
