PaperCut is the name of the print management system that is used/available at UNTHSC.

PaperCut accounts are automatically created for HSC students.  Faculty, staff and department accounts can be created upon request. Once the PaperCut printer driver is installed on their computer HSC affiliates can add funds to their account, and access the following PaperCut functions:

  • print from a computer or mobile device,
  • photocopy, or
  • scan to e-mail.

Each printed page costs $0.05-$0.25 per side. Add print funds using the PaperCut Application.  See the complete cost per side list for more specific information.

It is not recommended to add more than $20 at a time since there are no refunds for leftover print funds.

Adding print funds for the first time?  Check out the  Add Funds to PaperCut (PDF) instructions.

PaperCut From Off Campus

To access PaperCut from a device that is outside the campus network , you will need to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection. 

Log into the VPN before sending a print job.

Print & Copy Options
  • Color printing – available at select printers, see below for details.  All printers can print in black & white. 
  • One-sided printing – Check the Print Properties before sending your print job if you want one-sided prints. 
  • Large paper – All printers are equipped to print or copy on 8 ½ x 14 (legal) or 11 x 17 (ledger) paper. The default paper size is 8 ½ x 11 (letter). 

Print, copy, or scan using PaperCut printers at the following locations on campus. Each device can print on letter, legal and ledger size paper.

  • LIB Level 2 (across from restrooms)
  • EAD Level 5, Room 520
  • IREB Level 1, Room 118
  • MET Level 1 (Montgomery Street/east entrance)

To avoid incorrect charges and paper sizes, be sure the document size is set correctly. If a document does not match one of the standard sizes (A4, Letter (8 ½ x 11), Legal (8 ½ x 14), or Ledger (11 x 17)), it will be charged at 25 cents per side (color or black & white).
