SalukiTech Campus-Wide Printing Services (CWPS) provides and maintains printers for use by students, as well as faculty and staff. These printers are conveniently located in more than 30 locations across campus—including public spaces and campus housing. You may print to any of the CWPS printers from any University-owned or personal device as long as you have access to the SIU eduroam network.

You may send a print job from off campus if you have VPN access. No matter where you are working, you can queue your print job and then pick it up at any CWPS station on campus. And, don’t worry about privacy! CWPS printing requests are held in a virtual print queue (up to 24 hours) until you arrive at the print station and start the job. All CWPS printers accept Debit Dawg.

Adding Money For Printing

Don’t forget to add money to your card. All CWPS printers accept Debit Dawg funds loaded onto your SIU ID using any of the Debit Dawg machines around campus, or online through SalukiNet. The Debit Dawg machines are cash only and do not accept coins. They take all bills up to $20.

Here are the locations of active Debit Dawg machines on campus:

  • Communications Building (CLC Lab 4, Basement)
  • Lesar Law School (Library, 1st Floor)
  • Morris Library (Information Commons, 1st Floor)
  • Student Center (ID Office, 2nd Floor)
  • Trueblood Hall (Lobby, 1st Floor)

Guests without a Student ID card can purchase a copy card from the Debit Dawg kiosk on the first floor of Morris library or in the Student Center. The guest copy cards cost $1 and have 50 cents pre-loaded on them. They can be endlessly reloaded at the Debit Dawg machine. Type “Guest” in the printing window that popups when you send your job to the queue and give it a unique name since all guest jobs go to the same file.

NOTE: Copy Cards cannot be used with mobile phone printing. Mobile phone printing pulls funds from the debit dawg associated with your university email.

To print on one of the HP Printers select one of the options below.

NOTE: in some browsers you may not see a CWPS printer listed, in this case you may need to select “see more”

4. After verifying that you have selected the correct printer, click Print.

5. After you have selected Print on your computer (whether you are printing a webpage, document, presentation slides, etc.) a Pharos popup screen will appear.

6. Enter your information in the dialog box, then click Print.

7. After clicking Print go to the desired CWPS printer and swipe your Debit Dawg (Student ID) card or Copy card.
     a. The light indicator on the card reader’s light should flash green when the card is read. If the light flashes red or yellow, try swiping you card again.
     b. Make sure the card’s magnetic strip is facing the correct way.

8. The printer should log you in. Select Print release if it doesn’t automatically show your print jobs. Select your job and click Print. Print jobs will be deleted after 24 hours if they are not printed.
