The wēpa cloud-based printing system allows you to send files from your computer,
tablet or smart phone and print them at any of the 25 print stations conveniently positioned all over campus. It's a flexible solution that supports black and white, grayscale, and color printing
on letter-sized (8.5"x11") paper—and it even prints on both sides.

Swipe your OneCard or log in with your NetID and password.
Choose the files you want to print.
Identify your payment method; you may use TU OneCard Retail Points, a credit/debitcard, or wēpa points.
Print Your Files Using Touchless Printing (Recommended)
In the wēpa app, choose the files you want to print and your payment method.
At the print station with the app open, place your phone near the reader (lower right) or swipe your OneCard. If you use your OneCard, clean it with a sanitizing wipe afterward.
Your files will start printing.
