What is WEPA Printing?

Printing services at the library are provided through wēpa. Non-university patrons must set up a wēpa account and add funds to their account before they can print. Wēpa accepts credit/debit card or PayPal. Wēpa does not accept other forms of payment including LoboCash or old print cards. The library cannot take money for printing.
