Introducing PaperCut: The New Student Printing Platform

Southwestern Law School is thrilled to announce the introduction of a new student printing platform, PaperCut. PaperCut will make printing on campus easier than ever! 

PaperCut introduces several enhancements to your printing experience:

  • Tap to release: Once you link your student ID card to the PaperCut platform, you can go to any of the PaperCut Konica Minolta copiers or print release stations located in the Library or Student Business Center, tap your student ID, and release your print job(s).
  • Web Print: This allows you to submit documents from your own laptop and then release and print them on one of the PaperCut copiers or printers once you come to campus.
  • New equipment: All new PaperCut Konica Minolta copiers and HP Printers, each able to print color.
  • Cashless system: No more looking for coins in the couch.  Using your Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or America Express, you can quickly reload credits to your PaperCut account in the PaperCut platform.

What should I do first?

One of the new features that makes printing or copying easier and more streamlined is tap to release.  Tap to release just needs a quick one-time setup to link your student ID card to your PaperCut account.

Watch the video below for more details.

Where can I print on campus?

Konica Minolta copiers are located at the following locations:

  • Library Circulation Photocopy Room
  • Library Reference Photocopy Room
  • Housing Business Office

HP Color LaserJet printer locations:
