General: Print Information for Students


All students can print from their laptop, tablet, phone etc. to any computer lab, hallway, or common area that has a printer/copy machine. Printing on campus is now managed by software called PaperCut.

Each student is allotted a print quota of 600 Black and White pages a semester. As printing Color costs 10 times verus printing Black and White your semester print quota will be debited 10 pages for each color printed page. Pages will not be refunded unless the printer malfunctions and does not print and you are still charged for the pages. 

Examples: (assume starting print quota balance is 600 pages)

  • Printing a 3 page Black and White document will debit 3 pages (REMAINING PAGE BALANCE is 597 pages).
  • Printing a 3 page Color document will debit 30 pages.  (REMAINING PAGE BALANCE is 570 pages).
  • Printing a 3 page document where 2 pages are Black and White and 1 page is Color will debit 12 pages (REMAINING PAGE BALANCE is 588 pages).

It is your responsibility to manage your account and know your balance.​​​​​​​

Setting up your print account: (This is a one-time process)​​​​

  •  In order to print you must first register your account in PaperCut.  
  • Click here to access the MyGannon Print Manager tab or register directly while on the campus network here (If you have already performed this task once then you are good to go).

Print from your own personal device (e.g. laptop, tablet, phone):

  •  Visit here at MyGannon to access Print Manager tab or navigate directly while on the campus network here. This will detect your device type and walk you through installing a Print-N-Go printer of your choice (Erie, Ruskin, Black-White, Color). 
  • Printing to Print-N-Go printers allows you to swipe and release your print job at any lab, hallway, common area printer/copy machine. This is called Mobility Print. 

Print from a Gannon owned computer (e.g. in a computer lab):

  •  Print as you normally would from within the application (e.g. File - Print). 
  • Select either Print-N-Go or Print-N-Go Ruskin for the printer selection. 
  • Visit the printer/copier of your choice.
  • Swipe your Gannon ID card on the print device.
  • Select and release your print job

Printing as a work study or a graduate assistant student:

  • Contact your department supervisor to ensure your personal 600 page quota is not charged for work study department work. 
  • Once department supervisors have authorized students to print/copy for their department, those students will need to select for every print/copy job whether the job is for a department account or for their personal student account (quota). 
  • Instructions about how to perform this task and make this selection can be found here.
