Print From Anywhere



KU’s Print from Anywhere service allows you to print from your personal computer, laptop or mobile devices to multifunction printers located in computer labs, libraries and other campus locations. To print, you login to the service and select the building where you want to pick up your documents and upload your file(s). Your uploaded document(s) will be held in a queue for two hours, allowing you to release your print job at any printer in the building you selected. To release your print job, go to any printer in the building within two hours and follow the regular log in process.

Printing or copying costs $.08 per page for black and white and $0.48 for color. You can pay with funds you add to your KU Card (Beak 'em Bucks), or by purchasing printing credits ($1.00 minimum). See Visitor Printing for instructions for purchasing printing credits.

Before printing, decide whether you need your document printed in color or black & white. If there is ANY color in the document, you will be charged the color price. If you want it to print in black & white, be sure to change your printing settings to print in either gray scale of black and white.
