COVID-19 Advice for the JCU Community - Last updated: 24 September 2021, 8am (AEST)


CopyPrint is the Printing, Scanning and Copying service located on the Townsville and Cairns campuses. This service often requires your JCU card to use devices, so make sure you are carrying your ID card at all times. For information regarding acquiring a card, or misplaced cards, visit Student Cards.

Using JCU Printers

When connected to the JCU network you can connect to JCU printers from your personal laptop (Windows or MacOS), as well as from your mobile phone or tablet (iPhone or iPad and Android devices) using the PrinterOn app.

For instructions on using JCU Print Devices see the Device User Guide and refer to the JCU Wireless Guide for help connecting your personal laptop.

CopyPrint costs are spread across a variety of paper sizes and colour options.

You can see your current balance on StudentsOnline, and you can add money to your account using the CopyPrint online payment tool or at the paystations on campus.

CopyPrint paystations are located in Townsville InfoCommons D018-001, and Cairns B1 Foyer.  EFTPOS payments of $5 and above can be made at library service desks. Your ID card is required for both methods of payment. An ATM is located outside the northern entrance of the Townsville Library.

No Refunds will be given for unused printing credit, even at the end of your study. Each student is responsible for ensuring they only pay funds into their account which they reasonably expect to use during the course of their studies at JCU.

If you experience a problem during printing (paper jam, printer runs out of toner etc.), please submit a General IT Enquiry with details of the problem.

If you experience a problem adding funds to your account (via paystations or EFTPOS), please submit a General IT Enquiry with details of how you paid, what the error was and receipts or evidence of payment.

The IT Services Knowledgebase has more information on Printing on Campus, Costs and Payments, or viewing your personal account balance.

CopyPrint devices for Students are located across JCU’s Townsville and Cairns Campuses. Multi-Function devices with abilities to Print Scan and Copy can be found in the following locations.
