Copying and printing is done through the PaperCut Print Management System, which connects your KPU account to campus computers and MFPs (Multi-Function Printers, i.e. photocopier/printers).  You can tap your student card or type in your student number to access MFPs once you send your print job to be printed.

To add credit to your account, you must be on campus and either connected to the KPUSecureStudent network, or logged in to a campus computer. Visit KPU IT's Printing page for instructions

How to Load Money to Your Account for Printing

Paying for Printing or Copying

PaperCut IconLoading money yourself requires being on campus and payment by credit card only. PaperCut only accepts Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, or Discover cards and prepaid credit cards. Self-serve instructions to add money to your account are below.

You can also add money to your account in-person by visiting a Library Service Counter. Make sure you bring your KPU Card!  


Using Library computers

  • Double click the Papercut icon on the computer desktop (if you can’t find the icon go to papercut.kpu.ca and use your KPU login).
  • From the left hand menu choose Add Credit.
  • In the Amount to add field choose an amount from the drop down list. Online deposits are limited to: $1, $2, $5, $10, $15 and $20.
  • Click on Add value.
  • Fill out the Payment Details screen and click on Process Transaction.

 

Using your laptop or mobile device

  • Connect to the KPUSecureStudent wireless network.
  • Log into your student printing account at papercut.kpu.ca.
  • Follow the steps above

 

Check your balance on your account

Any funds you add to your student printing account but don't use remains on your account for your future use. You can check your balance by logging into your Papercut account as detailed above. You have to be on campus and either connected to KPUSecureStudent wifi network or using one of the library computers to access this site.

Once you log in to your Papercut account, funds will appear under 'Balance' or 'Netzcore'. Both amounts are seamlessly available for printing.  Funds will appear under 'Netzcore' if you add money to your account at a Library Service Counter. 

COPYING & FAXING

Copying

Go to a MFP (Multi-function printer).  They look like photocopiers and you can use it to print/copy/scan. All the machines copy in color and black and white.

Some tips:

  • To log into an MFP, tap your KPU card on the black scanner to the right of the screen on the machine (there is a red arrow on the front of the machine pointing to the scanner). Specify the settings that you want, and make copies. You'll find step-by-step instructions on the machines or on IT's Printing page.
  • You will need to have sufficient funds loaded onto your Papercut account to copy.  To add money, you have to be on campus and load credit to your account by credit card.  
  • Don't forget to log off after you're done!  Someone else could photocopy and use your funds by accident.

Faxing

The library does not offer access to fax machines. The KSA offers free local faxing to students.  

SCANNING

Scanning

There is no charge for scanning items in the Library. All of the MFP (multi-function printer) machines default to scan in colour.  You have two choices: you can scan and send your material to your KPU email address or you can scan to a USB stick.

Some tips:

  • To log into an MFP, tap your KPU card on the black scanner to the right of the screen on the machine (there is a red arrow on the front of the machine pointing to the scanner). Specify the settings that you want, and scan your documents. You'll find step-by-step instructions on the machines or at IT's Printing page
  • Don't forget to log off after you're done!  Even though scanning is free, once you are logged into the machine, someone else could photocopy and use your funds by accident.

PRINTING

Printing

You have two choices for sending a print job to a library MFP (Multi-function printer).  You can send your print job from a library computer or you can send your print job from your personal device.

Full instructions on how to print or scan can be found at IT's Printing page. 

Some tips:

  • Black & White, single sided 8.5"x11" are the default print settings. If you want colour, double sided, and/or 11"x17, make sure to select the colour printer and correct settings from the Print Menu before you send your job to the MFP.
  • You will need to have sufficient funds loaded onto your Papercut account to print from any campus MFP.  To add money, you have to be on campus and load credit to your account by credit card.  
  • To log into an MFP, tap your KPU card on the black scanner to the right of the screen on the machine (there is a red arrow on the front of the machine pointing to the scanner).  Don't forget to log off after you're done!  Someone else could photocopy and use your funds by accident.
