Things to know before you print...

Before you start printing at VCU Libraries, you will need to add RamBucks on your VCUCard to pay for printing. RamBucks can be added at the Cabell Library Information Desk and at RamBucks Stations on the first and second floors of Cabell. The Information Desk accepts credit, debit, cash, coins, and mobile pay while the stations only take cash bills. 

Did you lose your VCUCard? Our new printers allow current students to release print jobs using their eID and password. There's no need to purchase a replacement or temporary card if you are a current VCU student! Affiliates without a VCUCard can visit the Information Desk on the first floor to purchase a reloadable RamBucks card for $5. 


What are OnePrint machines and where can I find them?

These multifunction printer/scanner/copiers will allow you to print in black & white or color. You can also scan, copy, hole punch, and staple all using the same machine. 

OnePrint machines are available on every floor. Click here for a map of the library and our printing locations. 

At the Tompkins-McCaw Library, OnePrint machines are available on the first and second floor.
