About PrintSmart

PrintSmart is Butler's print accountability program. Butler students get print allotments to use for their academic printing needs, and faculty and staff use PrintSmart to print, copy, fax, and scan.

Report problems and requests for toner to the IT Help Desk. For paper, contact the person in your department or area that orders office supplies. If you are in a residence hall and paper is needed for a printer, please contact the residence hall front desk for assistance.  

Note about personal printers: Butler does not allow personal wireless printers to be used on-campus due to interference they cause with the wireless network. Students may connect a printer directly to their computer (via USB). The Help Desk offers limited support for student printers and offers no support for faculty or staff personal printers.
