Siena has an exciting update to printing for Fall 2020!
In a continual effort to support Siena College’s mission of sustainability, Community Living and ITS have been working together to enhance the printing experience for the Siena community while also limiting the amount of waste. The campus currently uses methods such as automatic double-sided printing and has successfully implemented print release stations for printing in student public spaces and resident student spaces to help cut down on waste. Print release stations have also been implemented for black and white printing in several resident student areas.
This summer, print release functionality has been implemented in the remaining resident student areas and student public spaces using the print system PaperCut. Print release functionality is also being simplified and it is now possible to release your print jobs from your mobile device as well as the existing print release stations.
Printing is easier and faster than ever. Siena’s printing service, PaperCut has been upgraded to a new version that allows for native printing from your macOS, Windows, iOS, Android, or Chrome device. Learn how to set up to print from your device to campus printers. Note: You MUST be connected to the eduroam wi-fi network to print from your device. Instructions vary depending on the device OS, but the basic idea is the same: set up the printer once, then you can print to and release your job at one of 12 release stations around campus.
All printing is free. Every user gets an initial $50.00 credit and then gets an additional $10.00 per month. The maximum carryover each month is $100.00. The dollar amount is present so that you are conscious of your printing. Black and white prints deduct $0.08 per page and color prints deduct $0.15 per page. Each user is unrestricted which means printing is allowed even if the balance falls below $0.00.
