How do I print with Wepa?

Wepa (pronounced wee-pa) offers multiple options for printing:

  • At a Wepa print station
    Use a USB flash drive, connect to Blackboard, or connect your Cloud Storage services like Google Drive or Box to print directly at a station! View a list of accessible Wepa locations.
  • From a UIC computer lab
    Installed computers have Wepa printers added to them so you can File -> Print from them as you have in the past with the U-Print system.
  • From the web
    Use the web portal to submit jobs, view your transaction history, and more!
  • From your laptop
    Visit to download the Wepa print software to your Windows or Mac laptop
  • From your phone
    Download the Wepa print app for iPhone or Android from the respective app store
  • From any device
    Attach a document in an email from your UIC email address to

When first using a Wepa print station, you will be prompted to swipe your iCard and then create a 6-digit PIN. After this, you will be able to log in to the Wepa print stations by just swiping your iCard and entering your PIN.

In order to utilize Wepa with the Technology Solutions quota and UIC Dragon Dollar$, you must have been issued a physical UIC i-card. The Dragon Dollar$ account is created when the i-card is issued and is checked each time a user logs into a Wepa station. The login attempt will fail if the Dragon Dollar$ account doesn't exist. Be sure to visit the UIC ID Center to obtain the i-card. (ID cards from UIUC and UIS will not suffice; a UIC i-card must be issued.)

If you are a guest, simply create a new Wepa account at a print station.
