Depending on your role at the University, there are different ways that you can print.
Shenandoah University uses the WEPA campus print system for student printing.
WEPA provides all students with the ability to upload/send their documents from any location (i.e. personal computers, dorm rooms, labs, libraries) and conveniently print those documents at any WEPA Printing Kiosk on campus. Users can print documents directly from a USB drive or Google Drive, at any WEPA kiosk as well. You release your sent documents by logging in using a WEPA username and password or release code provided by WEPA. You can even swipe your SU ID card to login to your account.
The WEPA kiosks can be found at these locations on campus:
|Main||Alson H. Smith, Jr. Library||First Floor (two)|
|Main||Health & Life Sciences Building||Student Lounge|
|Main||Brandt Student Center||Central hallway/Main Level|
|Main||Halpin-Harrison Hall||Second Floor, Room 203|
|Main||East Campus||Commons Area|
|Main||Ruebush Hall Conservatory||Second Floor Student Lounge|
|Northern VA Campus||44160 Scholar Plaza||Second Floor Lounge area|
|Northern VA Campus||44160 Scholar Plaza||First Floor Lounge area|
|Winchester Medical Ctr||Health Professions Building||Lower Level Cafeteria (two)|
|Winchester Medical Ctr||Health Professions Building||Main Level outside Library|
Beginning in July 2015, WEPA creates accounts for all Shenandoah University students with SU network credentials (network username and password). Your WEPA username is your SU email address and your password is the same as what you use to access the campus network.
WEPA printing is $0.09 per page for B/W and $0.49 per page for color. Printing on two sides will save you one cent per page.
Funds can be added to your WEPA account using a credit or debit card. This can be done directly at a kiosk, or at the WEPA website at <www.wepanow.com>. Also, you may purchase WEPA Print cards at the Smith Library, typically in $1.00 or $2.00 increments.
WEPA will add a $0.20 (20¢) surcharge if people use a credit or debit card to pay directly for printing a single page. However, using a credit or debit card to add at least $5.00 to your account incurs no surcharge.

You can also print from a USB drive and from cloud storage locations such as Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropbox. A WEPA print app is available for print from your iPhone iPad or Android device.
