Practicalities for the USI community

Printing, photocopying, scanning: Lugano Campus students

Printing

Students on the Lugano Campus may use the following printers:

  • USI_Students, located on the first level of the main building outside lecture rooms 156, 157 and 159;
  • USI_Laser, located in lecture room 128 in the main building, on the first and second floor of the Informatics building and in the study area for Master’s students on the fifth level of the library.

Students may print only in A4 format, in black and white. They are entitled to 1,000 free printouts per semester. You can consult an overview of your printouts on your system profile (to access the page from outside the campus IT network, you need to log in with your CAMPUS account).

To print, you need to send the print command to USI_Students or USI_Laser, and then provide your credentials by swiping your student card on the printer’s card reader.

 

PCs on campus

The Windows PCs for study available on campus, to which students gain access with their CAMPUS account, are already set up to print on the printers for student use: students will therefore find USI_Students and USI_Laser pre‑installed in the list of available printers.

 

Personal laptops

To print from a personal laptop to USI_Students or USI_Laser, you need to install the printers on the device:

Students in the Faculty of Informatics can find a brief overview of the installation of available printers in the Faculty here (you need to log in with your CAMPUS account).

You need to provide your credentials by swiping your student card on the printer’s card reader and following the instructions on the display.

Photocopiers are available in the campus library: students can use them by purchasing a magnetic card costing CHF 20 for 150 copies or CHF 40 for 320 copies from the library.
