Follow these instructions if you are a guest at SPU and would like to print or use the public copy machines. If you have trouble with your account or need to purchase PaperCut Guest Printing Dollars, stop by the Library Circulation Desk or Tech Desk for assistance.

  • Users must have PaperCut Guest Printing Dollars added to their account in order to print or copy
  • Cards may be purchased at the Library Circulation Desk and Tech Desk
    • Cash Only
  • You do not need PaperCut Guest Printing Dollors for scanning, but will need a PaperCut Guest Printing Credential for accessing the MFP
  • For each job submitted, you will need to log into PaperCut with your PaperCut Guest Printing Credential

Costs for each service for guests:

  • Black and White (print and copy) - $0.10 per impression
  • Color (print and copy)- $0.25 per impression
  • Scan - no charge, unless you print

All print jobs will default to black & white, unless otherwise specified. To view instructions on how to change this setting per job printed, go to our Advanced Settings page.

How To:
  1. Create a guest credential by going to print.spu.edu. Select the Register for Guest Printing Account (non-SPU) and follow the instructions on the screen.

    If you have already done this, proceed to the next step.

  2. On an SPU Kiosk computer, open the document you would like to print and click File -> Print.

  3. In the print dialogue box, make sure the SecurePrint printer is selected.

    If you do not have a PaperCut Guest Printing Credential, click the Register Guest Printing Account (non-SPU) and follow the instructions on the website.
  6. Click OK to continue.

    Note: Your print job will not print until you go to an MFP and release the job. The print job is tied to your account and cannot be printed by anyone else.

  7. Go to any Public MFP on campus and log in with your PaperCut Guest Printing Credentials. Upon login, you will be presented with your SecurePrint queue and may release the queued print jobs.

  8. Tap a job to print.

Common Problems:

All SPU Kiosks are set by default, to use SecurePrint - which requires a PaperCut Guest Printing Credential, for logging into the MFP to release the job. All jobs will default to black and white prints.

In order to use the copy, and print or scan to USB, you will need to log into the device via your PaperCut Guest Printing Credential.
