Printer Locations

Bender Library has three, high volume black and white printers and one color printer located on the lower level. Every computer in the library prints to these printers. There is also a quick print station downstairs with six computers, which patrons can use to send print jobs. The Graduate Research Center, accessible from both the SIS terrace level and the Library's lower level, also has a high volume printer/scanner.

Printing with Papercut

Patrons will use a cloud-based system (Papercut) to print, whether printing from library computers or laptops. This system does not require installation of printing software. Please follow these printing instructions on how to use the system.

  • Black and White Printing: 10 cents per page
