Printing in labs

Papercut printing

The campus uses PaperCut to manage printing.

Printing costs $.05 per page ($.04 per side for duplex printing). You will need to visit the Business Office or the Info Desk to add value to your PaperCut account. Once there is value in your account, all you need to do is print your job to either the printer located in the lab or a hold queue. The hold queue can be used to print at a different lab or at a later time. When you print, a login window will appear where you will login with your Morris email username and password.

Printing from Residence Halls

  3. $.05 per printed side for black and white print jobs.
