PaperCut Printing

PaperCut is a print management software that has been implemented at Hawkeye to bring awareness to printing cost and conservation and to begin shaping improved printing behavior.

All registered Hawkeye students will be given a $25 print/copy quota per semester. As you print or copy the cost of your print/copy job will be deducted from your print balance.

Guests may purchase pre-paid Print Cards at the Hawkeye Library.

Cost to Print or Copy

The cost to print or copy is calculated per piece of paper used.
