Copier Information: Students

Students: Print Anywhere on Campus

Messiah Press and Learning Technology Services manage the campus printing program. The program features color-capable copiers equipped with print, scan, and copy technology. In addition, the program helps to bring our overall copy and print strategy into alignment with Messiah's commitment to the priority of sustainability.

Other features of the program include:

  • Secure printing to the cloud, allowing students to "Print Anywhere" on campus, 24 hours a day.

  • Each copier acts as a release station, initiated by a card tap or password login to ensure confidentiality and reduce waste

  • "Pay as you use" billing processes and pricing designed to help users make the best decisions about where and when to print

The pricing structure is listed below in the Questions and Answers portion of this page.

Undergraduate students can utilize their $24 per semester allotment to pay for photocopies and to pay for printing.  If more funds are needed, additional money can be added to a student’s Falcon Dollars account.  Falcon Dollars allow you a convenient manner in which to make on campus purchases without carrying cash or checks.  The Falcon Dollars account functions similar to a debit card account.

Students may purchase Falcon Dollars in one of the following ways:

  • Depositing cash or checks at the Falcon Exchange, 2nd floor of Eisenhower Campus Center (ECC)
  • At one of the Value Transfer Stations (VTS) located in the  ECC and Student Union
  • Students can purchase online through FALCONlink

Please note, in order to "Print Anywhere" from a personal laptop - students will be required to utilize Mobility Print.  (Found at

If a student is printing from a lab computer, the Lexmark anywhere and the Toshiba anywhere printer options can be used.

Additional information can be found below under Questions and Answers.

More information about printing services in general can be found on-line at or through reading the Computer Lab Tutorials found on the desktops of each PC in the Computer Labs.

As always, students may seek help by calling the Student Computer Services at 717-796-5039.

Semester Credit

Each semester, undergraduate students will be given a $24.00 lab printing credit. This fee covers all print and/or copies made in Labs, on dorm printers, or on any "print anywhere" copier device on campus. Once enough pages have been printed to use all of this credit, the student must prepay for his or her printing needs by adding dollars to their Falcon Dollars Account. Please note: The $24 per semester credit is for copying and printing only -- it is not a credit which can be used against any other college fees. Any remaining credit from the initial $24 allotment in one semester will not be rolled forward or added to the next semester's credit. Each student starts each semester with the same credit amount.

Students are encouraged to contact Student Computer Services at 717-796-4444 if they have any questions. Students can also contact Messiah Press in the Bowmansdale building about their printing and copying needs when campus copiers do not seem adequate for their work. Often, Messiah Press can accommodate students' requests and can do so at a reduced cost.

Printer charges occur each time a print is made. The charge occurs immediately. If any discrepancies are noticed Student Computer Services should be contacted -- not the Business Office. (717-796-4444)

  • Login using your Messiah username and password
  • On the left side, click on Recent Print Jobs
