Printing at Carleton

Printing at Carleton is very different from printing at home or even printing at another school. To successfully print at Carleton, you will need to be familiar with software or printing methods that you may have never interacted with. That's why this page exists! This page serves as a helpful guide to printing at Carleton, and can be useful to students, staff, faculty and guests.

Please note that this page is meant to be used as a reference guide, and may not be able to answer very specific questions. For example if you were doing a Fine Arts project and needed to print out an image, this page would be helpful for answering the question, "What file types can I print off while using WebPrint?", but it would not be helpful for answering the question "What file resolution would be best to print this image in?" or "What file type should I print this image in?". But don't worry if you have these types of questions, because you have several resources to help you:


This Page

How do I scan at Carleton?

How do I use WebPrint?

Your Professor

I'm having trouble printing from a department specific application!

What file type is best for this assignment?

ITS Helpdesk

The printer in the CMC lobby won't turn on!

PaperCut keeps saying my account is locked!

Reference Librarian/ResearchIT Desk

The printer on 4th Libe won't turn on!

I need help printing/scanning something from microfiche!


Don't know what resource to check? Don't stress yourself out. If you ask any of these resources for help, they should be able to point you to the right place.


General Printing Guides


Frequently Asked Questions
  • Web Print vs. Client Print: Which One Should I Use?

    • That depends on your particular situation. Please consult this guide to determine which system to use.
  • How do I Print from a Mobile Device?
    • ITS is still perfecting a stable way to print from mobile devices. Regardless, there is a guide here that details some possible ways to print. Please note that mobile printing will only work for students and faculty at this time, as all current methods require a Carleton username and password.
  • How do Student Workers Print?
    • The printing process for student workers has changed in recent years. ITS has created a detailed guide for this process, which can be found here. Please note that student worker accounts (accounts that have the prefix "stu_") are no longer supported, and all student printing must be done with a regular Carleton account.


If you cannot find the question to your question after reviewing this guide, contact the ITS Helpdesk at x5999.
