Printing: How to Use MobilityPrint

This service is for students.

Due to the reduced number of public computers available for printing during COVID-19, we made some changes to PaperCut to make printing easier for students. All students -- except student workers -- will not be required to install the PaperCut client in order to print from personal devices. All student print jobs will automatically print when sent to a printer.

Be sure to check your PaperCut account balance often by logging in to the PaperCut user portal or OneStThomas.

Student employees, please be sure to download and install the full PaperCut Client before proceeding.
