Installing the PaperCut Client


This article details how students can install the Papercut client on their Windows, Mac, or Linux computer.




Setup wireless printing for Mac, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

Note: Printers are already installed on the IT Services lab and Library computers. These instructions are for laptops, notebooks, and notepads only.

Note: Dining Hall printer and computer lab printer can both be installed on laptop or notebook. Dining Hall printing funds cannot be used for lab printing.

Students must be enrolled in SFU Meal Plan and a registered member of the 'meal-plan-student-list' to access Dining Hall printing. Contact the Dining Hall Manager for enrollment in the SFU Meal Plan.  

Note: The Mac will ask you to enter your username and password for the printer and to "Remember this password in my keychain". Use your SFU credentials and not the computer account. The message "Holding for Authentication" will be displayed if the local computer account is stored/used.

Edit the OSX Keychain and modify the entry associated with the printer.

Service update: Printing services are not currently available in Dining Hall. (Updated September 8, 2021)
