Print via Campus Computers
Students may print directly to nearby printers when logged into campus computers in the library or the computer lab. The location of the printer is in the printer name.
Print via File Uploads
You can print simple what-you-see-is-what-you-get PDFs/MS Office/picture files (no duplex, PowerPoint handouts layouts, custom range, orientation change) by uploading the files to the library's Web Print website http://webprint.uwest.edu (you must be on the campus student wifi network UW-STU). Log in with your library account and you will be prompted to pick a printer and upload the files to print.
Print via Email Attachments
As long as you can send an email (via computer, laptop, tablet or phone), you can print simple what-you-see-is-what-you-get PDFs/MS Office/picture files (no duplex, PowerPoint handouts layouts, custom range, orientation change). Compose a new email with your @my.uwest.edu* email and attach your document(s). Send this email to the printer's email:
email@example.com - Black and white printer at the library.
firstname.lastname@example.org - Color printer at the library.
email@example.com - Black and white printer at ED233.
firstname.lastname@example.org - Color printer at ED233.
email@example.com - Black and white printer at Dorm A.
firstname.lastname@example.org - Black and white printer at the Rec Center.
*If you send via a non-UWest email address, you will receive a reply email with additional instructions to link your print account to that email. You must be on the campus student wifi network UW-STU to do this. However, subsequent printing via this email will no longer require campus wifi.
Print via Personal Laptop w/ Papercut Installation
If you want to print from your own laptop with all the custom features of printouts (duplex, paper orientation, size, etc.), you will need to setup the printer(s) and the Papercut printing program on your computer:
Windows (Open this file. Win8/10: Select the small 'More Info' link and 'Install Anyway' and follow the instructions on screen) | MAC (Manual setup instructions)

Guest printouts are released at the library circulation desk.
