Paying for prints & copies
Methods of payment
Printing in the Libraries now requires the use of your Stanford ID card or a Stanford Printing card. Printing cards are available at the circulation/loan desks at any Stanford Libraries location. Users will need to add funds to their cards using a debit or credit card prior to printing.
- Stanford students: if you are enrolled in the StanfordCardPlan, you may use your plan dollars for printing and copying. You can also add print/copy credits to your Stanford ID card to pay for printing and copying. Visit the Stanford Print/Copy Credits page to add funds to your Stanford ID card.
- Faculty, staff, and other Stanford ID card holders: add funds to your Stanford ID by visiting the Stanford Print/Copy Credits page.
- No Stanford ID: obtain a Stanford Printing Card from the circulation/load desk and go to the Stanford Print/Copy Credits page to add funds to the card. A one-time $5 card fee will be added to new Printing Card during the first transaction.
NOTE: As of August 17, 2015, cash will no longer be accepted for printing and copying.
No refunds for any balance on your card. A balance on your Stanford card can be used to purchase other items from the Card Plan at Tresidder Memorial Union, various residence dining halls, and vending machines.
