WolfPrint User FAQ's

If you are unable to find the answers you are looking for here, please submit a help request by using the Report a Problem form.


Where can I find a list of publicly available printers?  
Under normal circumstances, you shouldn't need a list of available printers. Most labs are configured so that all of the workstations in that lab point to the correct printer (i.e., the one that is located in the same lab). However, if you need to print to another lab, see the List of Publicly Available Printers.

Why do I have to pay to print and how much does it cost?
WolfCopy provides customer service representatives to cover each of their accounted printers on campus.  They support the hardware and consumables for the accounted printers located in the Unity public computer labs.  These employees are available from Monday through Friday, from 7:30am until 4:30 pm.  WolfCopy also also provides a technical support staff member who monitors the network connectivity of the printers and provides printing support to students as needed.    The print quota fees help pay for the supplies, repairs, an technical support needed to maintain the service.

How am I charged for printing?
WolfPrint uses PaperCut's print solution for accounted printing.  PaperCut works by intercepting print jobs as they pass into a print queue and extracts job information such as page counts.  It calculates the cost of the print job and deducts the funds accordingly from your allcampus account.  

How do I fund my AllCampus account?   
Deposits may be made via cash or check, by mail, online or in person to your allcampus account. Deposits will be available immediately upon receipt. There is no minimum deposit required, but your balance cannot exceed $1500.  For more information on funding your account, please visit their website.

What is PaperCut Print Credit?
PaperCut Print Credit are funds that can be used for printing only.  These are either funds that were carried over from the legacy WolfPrint system or refunds for print jobs in the new system.

What if I don’t have any money and still need to print?
If you are unable to add funds to your AllCampus account and do not have PaperCut Print Credit, you will not be able to print.  Please be sure your AllCampus account has sufficient funds for printing.

Why is my AllCampus Account Inactive and how do I print?

If you receive an error message when trying to add funds to your allcampus account, that your status is "inactive", this means your ID Card has expired and you need to get a new one.  There is no fee for a new card for registered students.  Contact Wolfpack One Card for assistance (919) 515-3090.

Can I print using my laptop or other portable device?
You can print only Adobe (.pdf) files to WolfCopy printers from your laptop using Web Print.  To access Web Print:

  1. Go to the WolfPrint login page for PaperCut.
  2. Enter your Unity ID and password.
  3. Select Web Print from the left menu.

WolfPrint doesn’t currently support printing from other portable devices.  

Can I print or check my printing account balance from off campus?
Yes, but you will first need to establish a secure link to the campus network by downloading and installing Virtual Private Network (VPN) software on your computer. To obtain a free copy, go to VPN Manual Instructions and Downloads.  

What is Web Print?
Web Print is a driver-less printing service that allows users to print by uploading documents from a Web browser. No client software or driver installation is required. Web Print provides a simple way to enable printing from your laptop.

How do I clear the print queue if my print job is stuck?
Users currently do not have the ability to cancel a print job from a print queue if it is stuck.  If you are charged without receiving your printout, you may request a refund.  If a print queue is jammed up and no jobs are processing, please use the Report a Problem link on the left side menu in PaperCut Web interface.  

What if I’m not satisfied with my printout, can I get a refund?   
Yes, you can request a refund for an unsatisfactory print job as follows:

  1. Go to the WolfPrint login page for PaperCut.
  2. Enter your Unity ID and password.
  3. Click on the Recent Print Jobs link on the left menu.
  4. Select the [request refund] link in the status column for the print job you want refunded. 
  5. Fill out the form provided.
  6. Click Send. An administrator will respond to your request.    

What happened to WolfPrint; what has changed?
WolfPrint has been updated!  WolfCopy will continue to provide the hardware and support for the account printers on campus, and OIT will continue to provide the support for the backend technologies.  We’re introducing PaperCut to process the accounting function of the wolfprint service.

Where are the funds from my old print quota account?
Any unused print quota from legacy system has been imported into your PaperCut as Print Credit.  These funds can be used only for printing.

Can I still request an IOU?  
The IOU feature is no longer supported.  Please make sure you have funds in your AllCampus account to use for printing. 

How do I request a Shared Account to fund student accounted printing?

Submit a Departmental Funding Request for Students to setup a Shared Account for students to use for printing.
