Students can print to the STEP Lab printers on the 1st floor from any STEP Lab, Reference Online Center (ROC) Lab, and Graduate Student Lab computer and from any mobile device (PDF) using PaperCut.

PaperCut is a print management system designed to reduce costs associated with excessive printing. Every student receives an account credit of $25.00 per semester. At 10 cents per page, this gives each student the ability to print 250 pages.

You can access your account by clicking on the 'Details...' link in the PaperCut window on the lab computer desktop or by going to PaperCut. Use your ULID and password to log in. The website shows your summary, environmental impact, transaction history, printing rates, recent print jobs, and how to add credit to your PaperCut account with Cajun Cash if you need to print more than 250 pages in a semester.

Find more information on printing with PaperCut at the University IT Service Desk or STEP Labs.

Students, faculty, and staff can print from mobile devices when connected to the University's Wireless Network. Review the instructions for printing from mobile devices (PDF).
