Fast and Easy Printing from your Computer or Mobile Device

You would like to print something out? Just use your ecUM or library card to make printouts or photocopies in any of the libraries. You are somewhere else on campus? No problem: Just use our online print service Papercut.

Where can I print out my documents?

You can either submit a print job from one of the University Library computers or directly from your mobile device. You will then be able to print out your documents within 48 hours using any photocopier of the library.

To this end, you need:

  • sufficient balance on your virtual print account
  • your ecUM or University Library card (to print on site)
