Printing, Scanning, Copying, and Copy Center Services

Located on the second floor of Waldo Library (#2028), the Copy Center offers a variety of services and office supplies for your convenience.

Printing

From library computers

WMU students, faculty and staff signed in with a Bronco NetID: Your document will automatically print from a public computer to the closest printer. Pages will be deducted from your semester WMU printing account (with a charge of $0.05 per page over quota). Students can check their printing balance in their GoWMU account under My Self Service > My Bronco NetID > My Lab Printing Account. Faculty and staff must monitor their balance by checking the print quota pop-up window after each print job.
