Guest Printing on Campus

Obtaining a Guest Printing Card

Guest cash printing cards are available to Temple University visitors who need to print in a Temple library or computer lab. They can be used for black and white and color laser printing. Approved visitors, such as first-year alums, can obtain a Guest Cash Printing Card at the service desks in Temple's libraries, as well as the TECH Center, HSC Tech Center and Tuttleman Computer Center. Cards are normally distributed with $0 value on them. Unless you plan to use a cash-only printer, you will need to add funds to your card before using it.
