Installing HuskyPrint and Papercut (Mac - minimally managed or personal)

You can use an automated installer to use the HuskyPrint stations on minimally managed or personal devices. If you have a fully managed device, you will already have the HuskyPrint stations installed and do not need to install HuskyPrint or Papercut. Visit Managed Devices at Michigan Tech for more details.

Papercut requirement

If you have a minimally managed or personal device, the Papercut Client is required. You need to install HuskyPrint and Papercut.

Please disconnect from the VPN before you print, as it will prevent the Papercut client from prompting for credentials. You can reconnect when you are done printing.

You can view your transaction history, recent print jobs, and jobs pending release by logging into PaperCut with your Michigan Tech account name and password.
