Currently, UC Merced manages two campus printing solutions: UC Merced Printing and PawPrint. UC Merced Printing is the preferred solution as UC Merced transitions off of PawPrint. Please use this page to determine which solution works best for you based on your location.  

  • UC Merced Print - uses your CatCard to authentic and release your print job. Using UC Merced Print allows you to send your print job to a print queue, which can then be printed at any UC Merced Print device regardless of location. NOTE: Documents sent to the print queue will be held for to 24 hours. 
  • Pawprint - requires a department code to send your print job to the printer. If you do not know your accounting code, check with your department CAO/MSO.
