What is PaperCut?

As part of the In-Campus Copy and Print Services at MSMU, the printers are run by ARO Print Services through the Mail, Graphics, & Student Print Services Department using the PaperCut application.

PaperCut is a print management software package that allows you to print from all library computers, campus lab computers, or from your personal laptop, desktop computer or tablet.

At each print station, students can:

  • obtain printouts
  • make copies
  • scan to a USB flash drive

After sending a document to print, log in to any copier on campus, and your print job will be waiting there for you to release it.

All active MSMU students with university-issued ID cards are automatically provided with a PaperCut account.

You must have funds in your account to make copies, print, or scan.
