Print, Copy & Scan



Printing, copying and scanning services for students, faculty, staff and campus visitors are available in many central campus locations such as computing labs and libraries via your KU Online ID.

See Campus Printing & Copying Locations for a list of computer labs that have multifunction devices (MFD) that can print, copy and scan on one device. KU uses a tracking program connected to the KU Card system to identify users and track printing costs.

Printing for Students

Students can print from computers in open computing labs and all library locations across the KU campus (see locations) using their KU Online ID. You also need available funds in your Beak 'Em Bucks account on your KU Card. When you log into a computer in these open locations, you will see the amount of free printing or Beak 'Em Bucks funds available to you. Be sure to log off the computers when you are done, so that others do not use your account to print.

What is Express Printing?

Express or Quick Print workstations allow users to print quickly from a USB drive, email attachment or web storage without logging in to the computer. Users must provide a KU Online ID and password when prompted, and their KU card must have sufficient funds to print. Usage of the Express Print station is limited to a maximum of five minutes per session. See Print, Copy & Scan Locations for a list of locations that have Express Printing workstations.
