Faculty, staff, students and guests are able to print to any public printer on campus from public workstations or personal devices using the PaperCut pay for print system.

  • SMU faculty, staff, and students may send print jobs to the printer queue via their SMU email account or upload to PaperCut via a web browser, following these instructions. Students pay for printing by adding funds to their SMU ID cards through SMU ID Card Services.
  • Guest researchers who wish to print or photocopy will need to set up a PaperCut account, per these instructions.
