IRT Announces Major Upgrade to UST Print Environment for Faculty/Staff


Beginning next week, IRT will upgrade UST’s print, copy, scan and fax environment.  New HP multi-function printers (MFPs) will be rolled out to replace current copiers.  Simultaneously, a new print tracking system called PaperCut will be implemented.

PaperCut supports the University’s commitment to cost reduction and sustainability by increasing awareness of the environmental impact of printing.  As the new MFPs are rolled out to departments, duplex printing (back to back) will be the default to reduce paper usage.  Department costs will be 4 cents per grayscale print and 25 cents for a color print.

UST computers will have the PaperCut application installed at the end of July.  A notification utility will appear each time you print, confirming the cost of the job, and will allow faculty, staff and student workers with multiple roles to assign cost to the proper account.  This utility, or “second click” print verification is in place to promote sustainability by reducing unintended prints. 

The new MFPs will be rolled out during the first three weeks of August.  IRT is offering training to department coordinators in late July. 

This transition requires that new printers are added to your computer once the MFPs are in place.  IRT technical staff will be on hand during the transition to help set up the new printers.  If you need additional assistance, contact the IRT Tech Desk.

Information on setting up printers on UST computers, as well as other helpful documentation is available on IRT’s website.
