Paying for prints & copies

You'll need to use your Stanford ID card or a Stanford Printing Card to print or make copies at the Libraries. Printing Cards are available at the circulation/loan desks at any Stanford Libraries location. You must add funds to your cards using a debit or credit card prior to printing.

  • Stanford students: if you are enrolled in the StanfordCardPlan, you may use your plan dollars for printing and copying. You can also add print/copy credits to your Stanford ID card to pay for printing and copying. Visit the Stanford Print/Copy Credits page to add funds to your Stanford ID card.
  • Faculty, staff, and other Stanford ID card holders: add funds to your Stanford ID by visiting the Stanford Print/Copy Credits page
  • No Stanford ID: obtain a Stanford Printing Card from the circulation/loan desk and go to the Stanford Print/Copy Credits page to add funds to the card. A one-time $5 card fee will be added to new Printing Card during the first transaction.

NOTE: Cash is not accepted for printing and copying.
