General Information

Printing is currently offered for students, faculty, and staff in the Theatre CAD Lab in KCPA 4-114. Printing is facilitated and managed through the use of networked printers, server-based print queues, and PaperCut software. Printers are available from lab computers and can also be added to personally owned computers (see below).


PaperCut is used to charge users appropriately for printing and help track and monitor printing systems. When users print to Theatre lab printers they are offered the opportunity to review and confirm charges before releasing their print jobs for printing. Lab users are charged as follows:

  • Students: Student printing is charged to their PaperCut "Billing" account. Charges are transferred to their Banner SAR account on or before the 1st of each month.
  • Faculty and staff: Theatre faculty and staff print for free in the Theatre CAD Lab.
  • Shared accounts: Select users may be allowed to charge their printing to shared accounts for productions, projects, or classes, when appropriate. Charges will be audited. Please see Cindi Howard from KCPA/PASC to request a shared account.

Please see the PaperCut user web interface for your balances and print history and to accept charges and release jobs for printing.

For more information on print charging, please see our documentation on PaperCut.

Please see printing with PaperCut for step-by-step instructions on printing with this system.


Requests for refunds should be made through the Department of Theatre. Please visit the Theatre main office in KCPA to inquire.

BYOD Printing

Self-service printer connection instructions are provided for users who wish to manually connect to printers from University-owned/Technology Services at FAA-managed devices or personally owned devices. Technology Services at FAA cannot guarantee that users will be able to print from personally owned or non-Technology Services at FAA managed devices. The user assumes all liability associated with printing from personally owned devices.

Users may want to install the PaperCut Client on their BYOD devices. It is only strictly necessary for users charging to shared accounts as users can access the hold/release queue via the PaperCut user web interface. Please see our article on the PaperCut Client for a download link, installation instructions, and more information.

Instructions for installing printer connections on BYOD computers are available at the end of this article. It is possible to add these printers to your computer as follows: Mac (SMB) and Windows. If you do not see your printer listed or would like additional assistance, please make an Technology Services at FAA Help Desk Ticket. Please do not add any queues for lab printers that are not listed in this table without consulting with Technology Services at FAA. Queues that are not listed may be disabled without notice.
