The University of Georgia now offers WEPA (Wireless Everywhere. Print Anywhere.) print kiosks throughout its campus in Athens.
Print kiosks are located throughout the UGA main campus and Health Sciences Campus (HSC). The WEPA kiosks are clearly marked with "Print Here" and the UGA Arch on the panels. The WEPA kiosk locations are:
The Miller Learning Center (MLC) features a number of print kiosks, which are available in lieu of consumer printers typically seen in computer labs. To print from a computer at the MLC, upload your document to WEPA's website or use one of the print drivers installed on the desktop. Print kiosks at the MLC are available at the following locations:
WEPA uses cloud technology to store print jobs for 96 hours until students can retrieve them from any one of the print kiosks on campus. The print kiosks provide an additional option for printing on campus.
Users have four options to send their documents to the WEPA cloud before printing at a kiosk. They may upload their document(s) from their computer to WEPA's website; they may download WEPA's print driver software on their computer; or they may install an Android or Apple mobile app to print directly from their smartphone. A fourth option is using a USB flash drive at a WEPA kiosk.
To pay for the printed documents, students may use Bulldog Bucks, a credit/debit card or funds deposited into a WEPA account.
The cost is $0.06 for black and white prints per a page, and $0.50 for color prints per a page. A $0.20 surcharge will apply for each transaction paid with a credit/debit card. The additional surcharge can be avoided by paying with Bulldog Bucks or a WEPA account that has been deposited with at least $5.
UGA installed these print kiosks based on feedback from a recent survey of students, who said they wanted this option on campus. The WEPA print kiosks are funded by the Student Technology Fee.
