Printing at Syracuse University
The sections below will provide details about your student account while on campus, how to manage your account including how to go about printing as well as additional support information. If you require further assistance, do not hesitate to contact the ITS Help Desk with any additional questions about printing at Syracuse University.
Student Print Accounts
Students are provided a $20 credit at the beginning of each academic year in August (this $20 credit covers the next 12 months) for printing services in the ITS public computer labs. Within the print management system, students are able to review the activity of their $20 quota or add funds through Cashnet. Note that students can increase their balance with either cash or a credit card. Full instructions on managing the print account, including adding funds, can be found on the Print Account Management Interface page.
Alumni, Retiree and Guest Print Accounts
Alumni who have graduated in the last 18 months can still log into ITS public lab locations. These alumni, however, will still need to create a guest account if they wish to print and will not be able to print using their previous NetID and password.
