  • IU Print is a global print environment implemented on all IU campuses. At Indiana University, student printing is funded through the Student Technology Fee, historically enabling more than 85% of students to print at no additional cost. Registered students and faculty are automatically able to use print services at any campus.

  • You simply select the document you would like to print and press print in the application. You can send multiple documents to the print queue.

    • Swipe your RedHawk Card at any Ricoh Multifunction Printer (MFP) to log into IU Print.
    • Or Use your IU Credentials to log into the Release Station on the Library 3rd floor.
    • Select the print jobs you would like to print, and press PRINT.
    • Finally, cancel any unwanted jobs or let them expire.

    Print jobs are automatically removed from your print queue after 4 hours. If you have any questions, ask the on-duty Consultant in the STCs or the Library Information Commons.
