Computers and Technology
*Covid-19 Update: Due to current restrictions, the student computers are not currently available for student use. Current students may book an appointment to use a study desk, but will need to bring in their own laptops if they need access to a computer.
The Regent College Student Association (RCSA) maintains eight computers for use by Regent students, all of which require an RWL (Regent Web Login) account to login. These computers are available for word processing, research, and email. All the Computer Lab computers are connected to network printers. If you have problems logging in, please contact the Regent helpdesk at [email protected].
*Covid-19 Update: Due to current restrictions, printing and copying services are not currently available. Scanning services are still provided by library staff for current Regent students, faculty, and staff; however, these are limited to the scanning of chapters/portions of library books. Learn more about current scanning services here.
The Allison Library provides printing, photocopying, and scanning services to our patrons using a printing services application called PaperCut. Regent students can pay for printing credit at the circulation desk. Community Members and students from neighbouring schools can purchase guest cards in the amount of $2 at the circulation desk. All copies for printing or photocopying cost 10¢ per page.
In order to access PaperCut and upload a document for printing, you will need to go to the following web address https://papercut.regent-college.edu.
Students will use their Regent login credentials as their username and password. Guests will use the username and password on the guest card they purchased. Printing can be done wirelessly by accessing PaperCut on your own computer and Regent students may also use the Computer Lab.
The Web Print screen will load automatically. In order to print your document select Submit a Job; choose Printer 1 or Copier 1; choose how many copies you want; browse to find your document on your device; select Upload.
By selecting upload and complete, you will send the job to be printed. You cannot cancel the print job after you choose this step.
Please note that in order to print webpages, emails, or content that contains Greek or Hebrew characters, you will need to save them first as PDF documents and then print them through PaperCut.
Retrieve your document. Printer 1 is located on the table near the Reference Desk and Copier 1 is located in the Library Copier Room beside the circulation desk.
There are no refunds given for $2 guest cards, though money can be added to guest cards. Please take care not to misplace them as there are no replacements for lost guest cards.
Students who require a refund for printing credit they have redeemed and/or who have a remaining balance on their PaperCut account may request a refund at the circulation desk.
An additional scanner is available in the Library Copier Room. This scanner has full public access, generates searchable PDFs, and sends scanned documents to your email address.
