USM Laptop Payprint System

USM’s Laptop Payprint System allows students to send black and white print jobs wirelessly from their own laptops (Windows and macOS supported), and have the print charges automatically deducted from their USM Card account.

For printing in a computer lab or classroom:

  • If you are a student, please log in with your MaineStreet username and password (same as for Brightspace).
  • If you have a guest card, please log in with your 16-digit card number as the username, and the last four digits of this same number as the password. (Your device must be registered and connected to the Tempest wireless network in order to utilize laptop printing. Printing while connected to the MaineEDU-Guest wireless network is not supported.)
  • If you are a student that has username longer than 21 characters, you will need to login with your full email, not just your username.

If you would like to check your card balance or add money to your account, please use the USM eAccounts web application (login required).

Laptop Printing

To download and install the PaperCut PC Client program that allows you to print from your laptop the first time, please choose one of the following links:

For step by step instructions, please visit our how-to guide: PaperCut Client Installation and Setup

**NEW** USM is trialing a new system called Print Deploy for student laptop printing. To use Print Deploy please make sure the Papercut programs have been deleted (and remove your 'USM Laptop' and 'USM Laptop Color' printers) then click HERE to install our new system.

For problems with printing, please contact the HelpDesk 780-4029 or email

This program does NOT show you your card balance when you print. Your money is stored in a secure location, and when you print, it is pulled from that location. No sensitive data is shared. You can check your card balance and payment for printing on the USM eAccounts website.
