How do I print from a computer lab?


The University of Montana uses a printing system called PaperCut in many locations across campus. PaperCut is a powerful software system that allows you to submit print jobs from certain computer labs on campus or a personal device and send the print job to the most convenient PaperCut printer for you. You use your NetID and password to login and print when using PaperCut. Though you do not swipe your Griz Card to print when using this system, you do use the UMoney account that is held on your Griz Card.


Go through the pop up messages on the lab computers when you send a print to the printer. Ensure you have a balance on your Griz Card that is enough to cover the price of your print job. If you need to add funds to your Griz Card you can deposit money to the UMoney account by following this link to Griz Card eAccounts.

Printing from a Campus Computer

  • Log in to the computer using your NetID as your username and your NetID password as your password OR log in with your NetID when prompted by the PaperCut system.
  • When you go to print, a PaperCut box will pop up automatically.
  • Print to the printer that you would like. Please ask the lab monitor/front desk assistant if you are unsure of which printer to select.
  • Your print job should automatically print. 

Printing from a Personal Device

  • To print from a personal device, you must access the online PaperCut portal to upload your print job.
