Printing to PAWPrints
For information on color printing, see Printing to PAWPrints Color
PAWPrints is the system through which you can send documents to the cluster printers. Print jobs can be sent from any computer in the clusters, from a dorm room, or from a department building. Your print job does not print out until you go to a print release station and log in. It costs a few cents per page, and the charges will be deducted either from your PAWPrint account* or BrownID Bear Bucks account via the card swipe at a print release station.
Black & White : 7 cents per 1 side or 10 cents for duplex
Color Printing: 25 cents per 1 side or 40 cents for duplex.

For Fall Students:
Students are granted a $30 printing credit once per academi YEAR via Bear Bucks. Upon the first login to a print release station each academic year, your account will see your $30 credit which can be seen on the bottom left corner of the release station. All printing done from a cluster printer will use the monies from the internal bank as the primary funds. Once the fund are exhusted, you will be charged via your Bear Bucks account (formerly Declining Balance).
For Summer Students:
- You will need a valid Brown ID and Brown account to be able to print.
- You will need to purchase a print card at any of the ValuePort machines on campus. (ValuePort machines are located in the CIT, SciLi and Rock Libraries).
Anyone connected to Brown's network with a Brown username and valid Brown ID can print to PAWPrints printers. To do so will require:
- At your computer - a login with your username connecting to the Brown network to reach the print queue. PAWPrints requires the HP LaserJet 9150 Postscript printer driver for proper operation. See installation and configuration section below.
- At the release station - a login ID and Brown ID card to select and release your job(s). Release stations are located adjacent to the cluster printers.
- At the card reader - either a print card or Brown ID with print credit to swipe and deduct the cost of each desired print job.
A print job request will spool to the selected print release server and wait in the PAWPrint queue until you login and release it. Then, your job will print on its corresponding printer for whichever release station you use. Note that any job held in the queue for more than 24 hours is automatically deleted.
This document covers the following functions:

- Printing multiple copies is not allowed. If you need more than one copy of a particular document, use a copy machine to duplicate the printed document.
CIS and the Library will reprint a document if the reason it did not print, or was smudged during printing, was due to a mechanical problem with the printer or a problem with the PAW Prints software. Reprints will not be issued to users who print the wrong document or have their document incorrectly formatted. Users must include the print output with any request for a reprint or reimbursement due to unacceptable print quality.
To obtain a reprint or reimbursement, either:
- Approach a lab consultant or Reference Librarian with your output and request a free reprint.
- If a lab consultant or Reference Librarian is not available, take your output to the CIS Help Desk in the CIT and complete a reimbursement request form for a reprint/refund. NOTE: Cluster printers are configured to cease printing if the toner levels are too low to produce an acceptable print image
NO CASH REFUNDS OR CREDITS WILL BE ISSUED under any circumstances. We will REPRINT your document as long as it meets the requirements above.
