Wepa

 

Now here, a new way to print at UIC!

After piloting a new print solution with Ink for the 2017-2018 academic year and reviewing student feedback, ACCC has moved to a new pilot with Wepa. This new solution brings several improvements:

  • Integration with Dragon Dollar$ and the ACCC print quota!
  • Simpler interface focused on the core service of printing, meaning less time spent at the print stations!
  • Integration with Blackboard, meaning you can print course materials directly at a print station!
  • While most stations print both Color and Black & White, some faster Black & White Only stations have been placed in high-volume locations!

Check out a quick walkthrough of how you can use Wepa!

Features

  • Easy authentication: Log in to Wepa print stations with just your iCard and a 6-digit PIN!
  • Print however it's easiest for you:
    • Use an installed computer in any of the pilot locations to send print jobs to Wepa and release at any Wepa print station.
    • Walk up to a Wepa print station and:
      • Plug in your USB key to print directly.
      • Connect to Blackboard to access and print course materials!
      • Connect to your Google Drive, Box, or OneDrive accounts to print saved files.
    • Visit https://wepanow.com/login/uic and upload documents to your print queue
    • Install the print driver from https://wepanow.com/login/uic and send print jobs from your laptop
    • Email your job to print@wepanow.com
  • Copy/Scan: Some Wepa print stations can copy documents via an attached scanner and save to your Cloud Storage like Google Drive or Box.

How to Print

  • At a print station: Use a USB flash drive, connect to Blackboard, or connect your Cloud Storage services like Google Drive or Box to print directly at a station!
  • From lab computers: The installed computers in the pilot locations have Wepa printers added to them so you can File -> Print from them as you have in the past with the U-Print system.
  • From the web: Use the web portal to submit jobs, view your transaction history, and more! https://wepanow.com/login/uic
  • From your laptop: Visit the web portal https://wepanow.com/login/uic and click on Print Drivers in the upper right to download the Wepa print software to your Windows or Mac laptop!
  • From your phone: Download the Wepa print app for iPhone or Android from the respective app store!
  • From any device: Attach a document in an email from your UIC email address to print@wepanow.com

When first using a Wepa print station, you will be prompted to swipe your iCard and then create a 6-digit PIN. After this, you will be able to log in to the Wepa print stations by just swiping your iCard and entering your PIN.

If you are a guest, simply create a new Wepa account at a print station.

Cost

Printing at Wepa stations uses Dragon Dollar$ or credit/debit cards. Beginning Summer 2018, the UIC print quota is part of your Dragon Dollar$ account. More details about printing funds and the quota.

A page is defined as a printed side and a sheet is defined as a physical piece of paper. There can be two pages to a sheet but not two sheets to a page.

Charges for printing on Wepa stations are the same as on the U-Print systems, and are as follows:

Cost per page Black & White Color
Single-sided (simplex) $0.08 per page $0.80 per page
Double-sided (duplex) $0.03 per page ($0.06 per sheet) $0.30 per page ($0.60 per sheet)
