Paying for and receiving your print

After you click Print, your print is sent to the front desk.
You will need to give the front desk the TigerCard you are using to pay along with the following information:

  • The LSU ID that is logged into the computer that you printed from (eg. jsmith1).
  • The size, paper type and page count of your print. You will have to give this information for all paper types and sizes.

The desk worker will send your print to the printer you chose.

  NOTE: A print can be sent to another printer of the same type by the desk worker, effectively changing the paper type.
  NOTE: A print sent to a black and white printer will not regain color if changed to another printer by the desk worker.

You may request a refund via PaperCut if your print is incorrect or misprinted due to a printer/computer error. All refunds must be approved by a worker at the front desk.
