PaperCut is the pay-to-print system utilized by OIT to manage publicly available printers. Faculty, staff, students and guests are able to print to various public printers from public workstations or personal devices. There are several ways to submit a job to the public printers:
- Using the pre-configured printers on the public workstations in the libraries or labs (support printing files greater than 10MB)
- Sending your print job to a specific email address (from SMU Email addresses only)(File must be less than 10MB)
- Submitting your job via a web browser (File must be less than 10MB)
Once the job has been submitted, you are able to release that job from any of the public printers that support the desired output. For example, a color print job could be released from any of the color printers in the public spaces across campus. For students and guests, a charge is assessed for any copy/print job in the public spaces.For detailed instructions on printing, click here.

For duplex printing, the cost is assessed per side.
Several schools or departments have funded a print quota for their students. These are configured on an annual basis. Once the student has printed their allocated number of free prints, the costs will be assessed to their personal account. Students will be notified by their individual schools or degree programs if they have a print quota allocated to them.
The following locations are currently configured on the pay for print system.
Color printers are available in each of the Libraries: Fondren Library, Bridwell, Hamon, Business Library, and Underwood.

Faculty and Staff printing
Faculty and staff printing is covered by the University printing fund. Faculty and staff are able to print to designated printers near their office as well as the public printers. No fees are assessed to the individual faculty/staff accounts for copies/prints. For public printers, faculty and staff will need to swipe their ID cards in order to release the jobs from the print server to the public printer.
