Printing on Campus

New Print Solution for Students!

Great Bay Community College has implemented a new print solution called PaperCut. While students are at the Portsmouth campus, they now have the ability to manage their own print quotas, print in black and white or color, change paper sizes, scan to a USB Drive, make copies. Students can print at various locations using their Student ID. Please read through all the sections and links on this webpage, if you need further support fill out an online Help Desk Ticket

How to Use PaperCut for Printing at the Portsmouth Campus

When printing from a college computer please follow the instructions below:
