Many questions about pay for printing are addressed below, but if you have other questions, feel free to Ask a Librarian.
If you have a current active UW-Madison ID, you already have a Wiscard account and a Print Account. Those accounts are tied to your UW-Madison ID. You can add funds to these accounts online at go.wisc.edu/print or in person on the second floor at Memorial Library.
A Wiscard account can be used to pay for many different goods and services on campus, including printing and photocopying, food services, books, and other school supplies. Funds can be added online or in-person at the Wiscard office on the first floor of Union South.
A Print Account can only be used to pay for printing and photocopying in Libraries, InfoLabs, and a few other places on campus. Funds can be added online (credit card) or in person (cash) at Memorial Library.
If you already use a Wiscard account to pay for housing, food, or other purchases it may be better for you to stay with that account for printing and copying. If you don’t already use a Wiscard account, there are policies for adding funds to each account that you will want to consider.
When you add funds to a Wiscard account, you must add a minimum of $15 at a time and there is a small fee when adding funds with a credit card. Print Accounts can have as little as $5 added at a time and the credit card fee is covered by the InfoLab program. NOTE that Print Accounts can ONLY pay for printing and photocopying.
Yes. Guest Cards can be picked up at most Library service desks, as well as at a kiosk in Memorial Library. Adding funds to a Guest Card can be done with a credit card online at http://go.wisc.edu/print or in cash at the Memorial Library kiosk.
The Wiscard office can distribute Department Cards that can then be handed out to students, faculty or staff for department business.
To get guest cards for department use, contact the Wiscard office by phone.
Contact the Wiscard office and they will be able to cancel the card and issue a new card if you need one.
In addition to being able to be funded through UDDS numbers, a department card can have an expiration date or can have spending limits in place. Contact the Wiscard office for more information.
