When you become a student, you receive a PaperCut account that is linked to your student card. The PaperCut account allows you to load credit so that you can pay for printing and photocopying on campus.

When you print to any printer on campus, the appropriate cost is deducted from your PaperCut account.

Please note that credit on your PaperCut account is non-refundable, but can be transferred to another student. Should your account be inactive for more than two years, any remaining balance is considered unclaimed and can't be transferred.
