Printing on campus

 About

Do you need to print something? A limited amount of free printing is available to K-State students, faculty and staff on the Manhattan campus. K-Staters get $10 of free printing during the spring and fall semesters and $5 for the summer semester. Unused balances do not carry forward to the next semester.

To print wirelessly, you must be on campus and connected to the KSU Wireless or KSU Housing network. Printers are available in computer labs, residence halls, Hale Library and the K-State Student Union.
