Register your campus card for iPrint

If you are a new student or if you have got a new replacement campus card, you will need to follow the steps below to activate your card for iPrint:

If you just had your card printed from Service Connect, you will need to wait a day before you can activate your card for iPrint. You may still print without using a card:

To activate your card for iPrint:

  1. Tap your campus card to an iPrint printer.
  2. Manually enter your Student ID and OneID password onto the printer screen.
  3. Your card is now activated.

If it says your password is incorrect, double-check the caps lock and confirm that you have typed in the correct password.

If you have incorrectly entered your password multiple times, your OneID account could be locked. You will need to wait 20 minutes for your account to be unlocked automatically, or you may unlock it from the OneID password change portal.

Remove a OneID from your campus card

If you have accidentally linked someone else’s OneID account with your card, complete the following steps:

  1. Log a OneHelp ticket and provide the following information:
    • OneID
    • Mobile number
  2. Fill in the corresponding fields with the information from this sample template:
    • Printing services request: Ask a question
    • Request subject: Wrong account linked to student card
    • Request description: I have accidentally linked my friend's account to my student card. My student card barcode number is: xxxxxxxxxxx. My friend's OneID is xxxxxxxx. Please assist me with unlinking the wrong account.
  3. After you submit the request, the Service Desk will unlink the account and you will then be able to register again.

Incorrect charges for Black and White prints

There is a known issue where you may be prompted incorrect charges for black and white (B&W) pages.

However, the charge will not occur until the print job has been completed and your balance will only be charged for what has been printed.

As long as you have chosen to print B&W and the printout is B&W, you will only be charged for printing as B&W.

You can check your balance at the top right-hand corner of the printer screen.
