ICS, Papercut, Technology Services ICS Printing Instructions

This page contains instructions for using ICS printers on the Urbana-Champaign campus.

You can print to the ICS lab printers from anywhere -- whether from an ICS lab or from your personal desktop, laptop computer or mobile device at any location. When you send a print job to an ICS printer, the job is queued until you come to the lab and release it from the printer by entering your NetID and ICS password.

Web Print

Web Print is a service to provide printing from laptops without the need to install print drivers. This feature is available at the Technology Services computer labs. Visit https://papercut.ics.illinois.edu and select Web Print on the left-hand side to upload the file and select the desired printer. Web Print utilizes the printer defaults and does not allow customization.  

Native Printing

Native printing adds the printer directly to your computer or laptop. It offers more options, but is more difficult to install. If you would like to use native printing then please follow these instructions.

Note: If printing from off-campus or Orchard Downs please connect using the VPN client.
