The Student Printing Service is the installation, configuration and troubleshooting of the PaperCut wireless printing service which allows students to print from their personal computing device on the campus wireless network to university owned printers using their print quota.

Each student begins the semester with a $20 balance in their print quota. The total number of printed pages this will supply depends on what type of printing (black and white, color, single sided, double sided) is done. You will be able to view your available balance from any computer lab on campus. If you need to print more pages than your initial allocation will allow, you may purchase additional non-refundable credits in $3 increments at the following three locations:

  • Office of Student Accounts, G-140 Willimans Center, M-F 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., cash, check, or credit

  • Reed Library Circulation Desk [library hours], cash, check, Fredonia Debit Account and FREDFunds

  • ITS Service Center, W203 Thompson Hall [its service center hours], Fredonia Debit Account and FREDFunds only

Reed Library, ResNet Office and the Thompson Hall ITS Service Center have color printers.

Students may purchase additional pages in $3 increments at the following locations:

  • Office of Student Accounts, 306 Maytum Hall, M-F 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., cash, check, or credit

  • Reed Library Circulation Desk [library hours], cash, check, Fredonia Debit Account and FREDFunds

  • ITS Service Center [its service center hours], W203 Thompson Hall, Fredonia Debit Account and FREDFunds only

At the time of payment you will receive a "PrintQuota TopUp Card" with the value of the card, a code, and a web address. Access the web address and then enter the code from the card to increase your quota accordingly.

The G22 McEwen, ResNet Office, Reed Library, ITS Service Center W203 Thompson, and 122 Houghton lab printers are set up to print double-sided.
