Printing: How to print from a personal device with MobilityPrint

This service is for faculty, staff, student employees, and students.

ITS recommends PaperCut's MobilityPrint when printing directly from a personal computer.

Note that, depending on your role, you may need to first install the PaperCut pop-up utility on your computer in order to print:

  • The PaperCut pop-up utility is required by default for all faculty, staff, and student employees.
  • Students who have never worked on campus will NOT need the PaperCut pop-up utility installed on their computer. These students' 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.

You may download the PaperCut utility using the following links:
