Paying for Copies


Each student is given 400 Print Credits or $20 worth of printing each semester for free. Credits rollover to the next semester, but not to the next academic year.

If you run out, you can purchase more credits at the library circulation desk (cash only).

OWU Printing Services Policy


At this time we only accept cash for copies. If you don't want to worry about carrying cash, remember, scanning your document to email is free. You can then use your print credits to print out the copies you need.


Students can be reimbursed for bad prints caused by the printer, including unreadable text or damaged paper. See a library staff member for reimbursement.

You cannot be reimbursed for: 

  • blank pages at the end of a document
  • print jobs you decide not to take
  • printing the wrong document or other user errors

Specifications and Troubleshooting

Library printers only print to the following paper sizes: 

  • Letter 8.5 in. x 11 in.
  • Legal 8.5 in. x 14 in.

Other paper sizes and weights of paper (like card stock) cannot be used in Library machines. To use those see Special Print Jobs.

Prints jobs can be slow when trying to print large files, docs with many images, or if there are several users attempting to print at the same time. 

If you have any questions or concerns about your print job, please ask Library staff for assistance.

If you have a print job that requires special paper or otherwise goes beyond simple document printing, contact the Print Services and Duplicating Department.
