Printing Options

Paw Prints is the available print service for all of the IT Computer labs and classrooms, as well as the Centers for Academic Excellence and other specialized computer labs.

The UCCS IT Department provides printing services in the open computer labs and computerized classrooms. By default the IT Lab computers will connect to the Follow-You-Printing queue, allowing customers to collect their print jobs from any of the Follow-You-Printing Release Stations. Customers can also choose a nearby Paw Prints printer from the list of available devices, all you have to do is confirm the formatting and printer settings for your print job. Only black and white printing on letter-sized paper is supported when printing in the Computer Labs.

When a print job is sent from an IT Lab computer, a popup dialog box will appear asking you to confirm the total number of pages, single-sided or double-sided formatting, and the total cost of your print job. Once you have reviewed and confirmed the total, the print job will be sent to the printer you selected and the amount will automatically be charged to your account and be visible on your bill. New students receive their first $2.00 worth of printing for free!

If you have any custom copy and print needs,the Copy Center located in the University Center offers additional services and includes an IT Lab computer for Paw Prints.

The Follow-You-Printing queue allows you to pick up your print job from any of our Follow-You-Printing Release Stations at your convenience.

Users can send print jobs to the Follow-You-Printing queue from nearly all computer labs and classrooms on campus, as well as the Mobile-Printing website. Customers are charged only when the print jobs are released, and jobs that are older than 24 hours will be automatically deleted without charging the customer.
