Printing from Personal Devices

Before printing to our self-service printer, make sure to choose the correct printer queue:

  • SICTR-2114-BW-Pickup: for 2-sided black and white print on 8.5"x11"(letter) or 11"x17"(ledger) white 20# paper
  • SICTR-2114-Color-Pickup: for 1-sided color print on 8.5"x11"(letter) or 11"x17"(ledger) white 20# paper
  • SICTR-2114-Resume-Pickup: for 1-sided black and white print on 8.5x11 (letter) on resume paper. This printer queue is only supported during the Quick-Print Center business hours.
    • *Default and most popular paper is a 70# Natural Opaque Text, but other paper options are available during normal business hours, just ask at the window.
    • When printing to this queue, it is required that you select the “bypass” tray, to ensure your file prints on the correct paper. If you have trouble with this, please visit the Quick-Print Center walk-up counter.

Using PaperCut Printers

Print jobs are limited to 99 pages. For larger print orders, please visit our print order page.

To print your documents, go to the SICTR-2114 printer (located outside of Room 2114 in the Student Innovation Center) and login with one of these methods:

  • Tapping your ISU Card on the reader
  • Scanning the QR code
  • Manually using your email address and password on the touchscreen.

All of your queued documents should immediately begin printing after you login.

You have up to 2 hours from when you submit your document to print it. Your document print job will be cancelled automatically if you don't login to the printer to complete the printing. Print credits/units are charged each time you print a document. If you need assistance, please ask for help at the Quick Print Center in Room 2114 Student Innovation Center.
