Ohio Wesleyan uses PCounter to manage students’ print quotas. Every student is given a quota of 800 pages each academic year and may purchase additional pages at 5 cents per page. OWU printers can’t quite be called “Public Access Printers” because some are in secure residential buildings, others are in classrooms, and even the ones in public places must be accessed with an OWU username and password. Guests of the University may see the Reference Librarians or the staff at the Library Circulation Desk for guest credentials. Click here for a campus map.

For instructions to install a printer, see the Installing a Printer page.

WebPrint - Wireless Printing

Our new wireless printing service is now available.  This service allows faculty, staff, and students to use their own device to print to campus printers.  Wireless printing is currently available in Beeghly Information Commons and Internet Cafe.  More printers will be added over the summer.

1.  To use the service, go to and log in with your OWU username and password.

2.  Upload the document you want to print and click Next.

3.  Then select a printer from the dropdown list and click Print.

Questions and Answers

Q. When is the PCounter quota reset? Do students lose any unused pages?
A. In the summer between spring and fall semesters the quota is reset to $20 (400 pages). In winter between fall and spring semesters $20 (400 pages) is added to the remaining fall total.

Help! My print job in a computer lab isn’t printing. What should I do?
A. Check to make sure the Print Job Billing program is running: There should be a green pyramid in the system tray, down in the bottom right corner by the clock. If it’s not there, go to the Start menu and launch PCounter from the Startup folder. Once it’s running, it will prompt for username and password and then start printing any jobs already queued up.

If the green pyramid is already shown in the system tray, try right-clicking on it and choosing Preferences. This will display a list of servers. Make sure there is a check mark next to deneb. This will also kick-start any jobs in the print queue.

Q. Where can students print in color?
A. Print Services on the lower level of the north branch of Schimmel◊Conrades Science Center (SCSC Room 184) offers color printing for 51¢ per page, with discounts for large quantities. Neither Information Services nor the Media Center in Beeghly Library offers this service to students. Students enrolled in Fine Arts or other classes will have alternative options specific to these classes.

Q. Where can students have documents scanned?
A. Students can scan to email on the multi-function devices at Beeghly Library.

Q. Is there a quicker way to install printers?
A. In Windows you can go to Start/Run and enter the full path and file name for the printer, for example:

It will install and open up the printer or FAX queue. Because it doesn’t ask if you want to set it as the default printer, you will have to go in and set it as the default if you want it to be the default.
