BeaverPrint

In our continuing effort promote sustainability, OSU has implemented a print tracking system called BeaverPrint throughout campus. This system provides secure print release of print jobs and tracks usage of each printer. Students can release their print job at any printer simply by swiping their OSUID card at a print release station. The process allows students to review their queued print jobs, delete incorrect print jobs and release any of the print jobs in their queue. Whatever your device, wherever you are, you can print your work to any BeaverPrint printer on campus.

BeaverPrint printers are currently located in following places:

Below you can find quick information on how to use BeaverPrint to your advantage:
