Printing and Copying

Cardinal Stritch University uses PaperCut, an eco-friendly print management solution. Each time a student prints, they are alerted of their current print count and must confirm the print job before it will print.  Prints are automatically deducted from the student's PaperCut account.

The library has black and-white printers on each floor, and two color printers on the first floor.  All computers in the library can print to at least one black-and-white printer.

Printing Cost

  • Students are allotted 600 print counts per semester
  • Print counts can be used for printing or photocopying
  • Each black-and-white page is one count
  • Each color page is five counts
  • Additional print counts may be purchased in the library for $0.10 each.

Photocopying

The library has one multifunction printer that is capable of photocopying in black and white. It is located on the first floor near the reference desk.

To make photocopies, students login to the copier using their CSU login credentials.  The copier will display their current PaperCut balance.  Copies are automatically deducted from the student's PaperCut account.

Each black-and-white page costs one PaperCut count.
