Overview of Printing

UTprint printer locations:

UTprint printers are located in the following spaces in the law school:

  • 2nd floor main lobby of the Library, next to the circulation desk;
  • 3rd floor student computer lab in the Library, next to the Tarlton Tech Desk; and 
  • Tom Clark Lounge.

Printing from a laptop

Students can send print jobs to the UTprint machines by uploading them into the UTLibraries/UTprint My Print Center.  Printer software can be installed to simplify the printing process from laptops (see below).  We recommend using BevoPay to fund printing on the UTprint system.  


Printing from 3rd floor student computer lab:

Computers located on carrels next to the Tarlton Tech Desk (JON 3.220) and in the computer classroom (JON 3.222/3.223) print to the UTprint printers. (Printouts may be picked up from any UTprint printer on campus).  We recommend using BevoPay to fund printing on the UTprint system.  



All printers print to 8 ½″ x 11″ paper only. The charge for black and white printing is $0.10 per page; double-sided/duplex printing (printing a single sheet on both sides) costs $0.20 per page for black and white printing. There is a color printer located next to the Tarlton Tech Desk. Select the UTprint Color option from the screen pop-up. The charge for color printing is $0.40 per single-sided page and $0.80 for double-sided pages.


(There are a limited number of computers on the Library's 2nd floor for public use. Printing from these public terminals goes to the small black printer next to the computers.  They do not print to the UTprint machines).  

Printing with UTprint

Before you print

  • Funds added to UT Libraries print accounts and BevoPay can be used to print on the UTprint system.  We recommend using BevoPay to fund printing on the UTprint system because money placed in BevoPay is easily refundable if not used.  

First time printing

  • Register on any of the UTprint printers by tapping your UT ID card on the printer's card reader (the black credit card-sized box). Enter your UT EID and password (you only need to do this once), then press "Enter." Once registered, tap your UT ID card on the printer's card reader to view your print jobs.


  • Go to any UTprint printer in the Law School or across campus, tap your UT ID card on the printer's card reader, and select your print job.
  • Forgot your UT ID card? Enter your UT EID and password on the touch screen to retrieve your print job.
  • To print to the color printer, select that option from the print software pop-up (the name of the printer is "ITS_Law_JON_3.220_CLR"). The color printer is located on the 3rd floor next to the Tarlton Tech Desk; it is labeled "COLOR and Black/white."
  • Need to use your own stationery? Ask for assistance at the Tarlton Tech Desk.
  • Request assistance at the Tarlton Tech Desk if you feel your print job is of unacceptable condition. 

 Missing a print job? Here are some tips for finding it:

  • Check your BevoPay account: it will tell you if your print job went through and if your account was actually charged. You will only be charged for the print jobs you release.
  • Pending print jobs remain in the the system for 48 hours before being deleted.
  • Contact the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor for additional assistance. 

Print Software for Laptops

To print from your laptop to the UTprint printers, students can upload print jobs into the UT Libraries/UTprint My Print Center.  It is possible to print directly from laptop computers, without uploading the jobs into My Print Center.  To do this, students will need to install UTprint software. Please contact the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor, and we will help you download the necessary drivers for printing.

Alternatively, you can download the appropriate software from UTprint.

  • For Windows, look for "Windows" under the "Drivers" section. Click on "black and white" and/or "color" to download those respective drivers to your computer.
  • For Macs, look for "macOS" under the "Drivers" section. Click on "all drivers" to download the Mac print drivers to your computer.

Note: If you installed print drivers for Law School printers prior to August 2017 (for Windows laptops) or June 2017 (for Mac laptops), you must install the new drivers. The new drivers allow for you to print to any UTprint printer at the Law School and on campus.

Staff at the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor are available for assistance if you have any questions or problems.


The Library has four standalone scanners available: (1) two 2nd floor KIC book scanners, (2) a 3rd floor KIC book scanner, and (3) a 3rd floor flatbed scanner with document feeder

  • Two KIC Scanners are located near the charging locker on the 2nd floor, and the other KIC Scanner is located in the computer lab area on the 3rd floor.  The KIC scanners provide for the scanning of bound documents in either color or black and white. They also offer a variety of output formats, including PDF, searchable PDF, JPEG, PNG, Rich Text/DOC, or audio. You can save your scans to a USB key, send the scans to an e-mail address, upload them to cloud storage, save them to an app called MyDocs (KSS), or even save them to a tablet or smart phone using a QR code.
  • The KIC scanners also include an electronic user guide outlining how to scan and save images and how to navigate its settings and menus. There is no charge for use of the KIC scanners.
  • The flatbed scanner is located in a separate carrel in the computer carrels near the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor. Instructions are available for saving a scan as a PDF or Word document, which can then be emailed. The use of the flatbed scanner requires computer log-in and is limited to UT Law students.


UTprint printers can also be used to scan documents. Place the documents in the document feeder, log in to the UTprint printer using your UT ID card, choose the scan function, and enter the email address you would like the scanned documents sent to. Scanning with the UTprint printers is free. The use of the UTprint printers for scanning requires computer log-in and is limited to UT Law students.


Copying is available for UT Law students at any UTprint machine in the library. The cost is $0.10 per page.
