Copy, Print, Fax, and Scan

The University of Chicago's printing service is available at all campus libraries, residence halls, and the Arley D. Cathey Learning Center.

See the Printing in the Library video tutorial for a quick introduction.

Adding value to a UChicago Card or Campus Card

To copy, print, fax, or scan, users must first add value online to their UChicago Card or Campus Card, using a debit or credit card (via PayPal).

Eligible users with older library cards may visit the ID & Privileges Office to receive a Campus Card.

Visitors who are ineligible for a UChicago Card or Campus Card may purchase a copy card.

Printing options

Users may print documents via web printing or from Library computers.
Supported file formats: .pdf, .doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, .xls, .xlsx, .htm, .html, .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .pub, .rtf, .xml, .xps

Submitting a print job from laptops or mobile devices (web printing)

Web printing allows users to print to copy/print/scan stations from any computer or mobile device. Users can log in with their CNET ID and password or, for visitors, the PIN number located on their purchased copy cards.

Submitting a print job from Library computers

Users with UChicago Cards or Campus Cards may print to copy/print/scan stations from Library computers by selecting the print option from any print-capable program and selecting the "Secure_Printer on uniflow" printer from the print dialog box. The print driver for the system will automatically install the first time a user logs in to a given Library computer.

Visitors with purchased copy cards must use web printing to print from Library computers.
