iPad Printing


Feb 21, 2014:  Please note that iPad printing has been disabled by some changes that Apple implemented in iOS 7.  We are looking for a solution and will update this page as soon as we can!


USM is proud to announce iPad printing on the Portland, Gorham, and LAC campuses. This system is not supported with Android tablets (or phones), because of limitations in the Android platform. iPhone printing may work, but the web page will be difficult to read on such a small screen.

Printing from an iPad is always a two-step process:

  1. connect to the PaperCut web page to authenticate
  2. print your job

Please make sure you remember to visit the PaperCut web page before you print, else your job will be deleted after five minutes.

How To Configure your iPad

  1. Install the PaperCut App on your iPad Homescreen, log in as a user
  2. See a example of how to print
