Printing & Photocopying


All students, faculty/staff members and visitors may print from the public terminals in the library. After selecting the print option, you will be asked to enter your zID (students), Novell ID (faculty/staff), or Copy Card number.

Release Print Job

To release your printing job at an Anywhere printer, swipe your OneCard or Copy Card through the attached reader and select the job you wish to print. Black & white copies cost $.07 per page and color copies cost $.25 per page. Your document will automatically print out in black and white unless you select color from the print properties on the computer.

Print Quota

Registered NIU students will be allotted $7.00 in printing value the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 via any Anywhere Printing machine. Once a student has used their print quota they can begin to use their OneCard with Huskie Bucks or purchase a Copy Card. After Spring 2015 there will be no "free" printing.

Anywhere Printing Locations

Anywhere Printing locations can be found on the 1st floor of the library by the Huskie Prints Helpdesk, on the Lower Level in the Founders Cafe lounge, and in the 3rd floor computer lab.

Add Money to Existing Huskie Bucks Account or Purchase Copy Card

Money can be added to your OneCard with Huskie Bucks account or a Copy Card may be purchased at the Value Transfer Station (VTS) located on the first floor of Founders Memorial Library just past the escalators.


Photocopiers are available in the Huskie Prints area on the 1st Floor of the library, on the Lower Level in the Founders Cafe lounge, in the alcoves next to the elevators on the 2nd and 4th floors and in the computer lab on the 3rd floor. Copies are $.07 per page (black & white) and $.25 per page (color capable machines). Patrons may pay with Huskie Bucks or purchase a Copy Card. A student's print quota may also be used to make photocopies at one of the Anywhere Printing locations. Go to its.niu.edu for a complete list of locations.
