CatPrints - Printing at OSCR

The University of Arizona offers a printing system called CatPrints provided by WEPA (pronounced 'Wee-Pah'). CatPrints provides all students, faculty and staff with the ability to upload/send their documents from any location (e.g., personal computers, labs, or smartphones) and conveniently print those documents at any CatPrints printing kiosk on-campus. Of the 36 CatPrint kiosks located throughout campus nine (9) are located in the Office of Student Computing (OSCR) labs. Users can also print documents directly from their USB at any CatPrints kiosk. You can release your sent documents by swiping your CatCa$h card at each printing kiosk.

  • convenience of 24/7 printing on campus
