Print, Scan, Digitize

Printing is available in Butler Library, Lehman Library, the Science & Engineering Library, and the Business Library. In order to print, students will need a seat reservation. To print, just tap your CUID on the card reader and the printer will print everything that's in your PawPrint queue. 

PawPrint is Columbia University’s student and faculty printing system on the Morningside campus. With PawPrint, you can send a document to print from any computer, and print it at any PawPrint print station. PawPrinters have been upgraded to a "touchless" system, just tap your CUID on the card reader and the printer will print everything currently in your print queue. 

This fall, a study seat reservation is required in order to enter libraries. If you have a study seat reservation, you may use the PawPrinter located in that library. Libraries offering PawPrinter access are Butler, Lehman Social Sciences, Science & Engineering, Starr East Asian, and Watson Business Library. Touchless color printing can be found in Lehman room 323.

Please visit the PawPrint Quick Start Guide to get started, check quotas, report issues, and more.
