Connecticut College uses a print system, PaperCut, to enhance functionality, simplify maintenance, and to provide additional services. The Xerox printers/copiers/scanners, also known as Multi-Function Devices (MFDs), are located in the Shain Library, Greer Music Library, the Language & Culture Center, in many academic and administrative buildings, and in the College Center at Crozier-Williams.
Printing from the computer stations
When you print from any College network connected computer, your print job goes to the PaperCut print queue. You can then print your job from any one of the MFDs on campus.
General instructions on retrieving and releasing your print jobs at the MFDs are available here: Retrieving Your Print Jobs (PDF).
Staff and faculty must have an accounting code associated with their College username in order to print. If you do not have an accounting code set up, please place a Web Help Desk request on CamelWeb.
Printing costs are $.09/double-sided B&W sheet and $.05/single-sided B&W sheet; for color printing the cost is $.18/double-sided sheet and $.10/single-sided sheet. At the MFD, you can choose to proceed with your print job or delete it to avoid incurring a fee. Your print job remains in the queue for 24 hours.
Double-sided printing is the default for black and white; you can change to single-sheet printing at the MFD. Single-sided is the default for color prints.
Printing from campus offices or the campus wireless network
Users can email black and white documents to email@example.com and email color documents to firstname.lastname@example.org as long as the attachments do not exceed Google's sending limit of 25 MB. Documents attached to the email must be in the following formats: Microsoft Office Suite, PDF, or graphics files. Users can then log on to a MFD in any location to print the document. Faculty and staff that use a college-issued computer will see the PaperCut follow me printer in the printer list. In addition, College networked computers must either have the task bar popup installed or the PaperCut client software installed to ensure proper printing results.
Scanning a document to your email
Each MFD has the ability to scan a document into a digital PDF format and email it to your email address or any other @conncoll.edu email address. There is no charge for scanning services.
College computers issued to faculty and staff may be configured to print to departmental printers. The printer drivers will be installed when the College-issued computers are deployed. The official print solution at the college is the Xerox Multi-Function Devices (MFDs). Departmental printers will not be replaced when they reach end of life. If a department requires a stand-alone printer, that printer will be purchased using departmental funds. The purchase should be coordinated by the Computer Support Services Manager. The printer will be directly connected to a specific computer and will not be available on the wireless or hard-wired network.
The department would be responsible for all troubleshooting and maintenance of the printer. An HP laserjet printer with a three year warranty is recommended.
