Printing and Plotting

Wentworth Printing

You must use a wired connection or the LeopardSecure wireless network to print. Printing from LeopardGuest is not supported. Wentworth printers are named according to the building and room number they are located in, followed by the make and model of the specific printers. In certain cases where several identical printers are in one room, they are designated with an additional letter at the end of the name.

For specific instructions on how to add printers please see the section of this guide that matches your computer type. Be sure to have the correct printer selected before printing.

Print Quota

On campus printing services are managed by a print quota system.

  • After the add/drop period at the start of each semester, every student will be given a semester quota to be used for printing.
  • The amount of the semester quota is determined by the program in which the student is enrolled and is based on the unique curricular demands of that program.
  • As students use printing services, their quota will be depleted according to the printing rate sheet below.
  • Students need to install the software widget "PaperCut" via the software distribution page on LConnect to print successfully.
  • If a student exhausts their quota before the end of the semester, they can refill their quota from their Fenway Cash account.
  • At the end of the semester any unused portion of the print quota automatically rolls over into the next semester.
  • Students can view their print quota, recent print jobs, and refill their quota all online using the Wentworth Print Accounting Webster at http://print.wit.edu. Students can also download a Widget onto their computer that displays their current quota from the Software Distribution Server throughLConnect.

NOTE: Please do not leave a lab computer or your laptop computer logged in when you step away from it. Not only is it a general security risk, but it allows anyone who walks up to that computer to print using your print quota.
