Service Requirements

To achieve Student Printing service goals and provide a standardized, environmentally sustainable solution,​ the following requirements will be met:

  • A PaperCut CBORD integration will be used in conjunction with Student and Campus Life solutions to provide a Bursar Bill option for charges.
  • Standardized deployment of desktop clients and printers.
  • A standard fleet of PaperCut-supported printers provided by a single vendor.
  • CIT will own and manage the standard package of printers:
    • Medium-volume single-function models: black-and-white and color.
    • High-volume single-function models: black-and-white and color.
    • A multi-function option based on location needs.
  • Overall service features and capabilities will support student printing needs across campus.
  • Complexity and variation will be kept to a minimum, focusing on out-of-the-box solutions, and using PaperCut software where we currently have custom programming.


Lab/Printing Location Setup

  • Lab configurations for Student Printing will be deployed in the same fashion  across locations.
  • A common client package will provide a consistent set of print queues and have Windows and macOS installation options.
  • Lab clients for Windows and macOS workstations will be bound to the domain and require NetID login.
  • Clients in all printing locations will be part of Cornell Active Directory.
  • Print job submissions will require authentication and secure release.
